ADSL DSL-200 Modem on Redhat 9


Just installed Redhat 9 and all went well except for the modem. The power light to the modem is always on but sometimes the adsl link is flashing and sometimes its off.

I did some research and found that I should install eciadsl-usermode-0.9-1.i586.rpm and I downloaded this using windows and transferred it over using floppy but then it said I needed perl-base to install it so I downloaded perl-base-5.8.3-5mdk.i586.rpm and it said it had some conflicts with the perl files already installed so it couldnt be installed.

So I was just wondering if anyone has had the same problem and how they fixed it or if anyone knows how I can install eciadsl or how I can get perl-base installed.

Thanks.

Could you post the dependancy errors?

I would also avoid using mdk rpms on RedHat - the mdk ones are for Mandrake.

OK.

Installing RPMs is really best done from the command line - the graphical package managers don't give enough information to diagnose the problem.

You might want to try installing perl-base from the RedHat 9 CDs - it's probably already installed, but it's worth a go.

If that doesn't work, go to www.rpmseek.com and look for perl-base. You could try either RedHat or Fedora versions.

I checked the RPM's on the Redhat 9 disc's and there is no perl-base on it. And I checked the rpmseeker and they didnt have perl-base for Redhat so im not sure what ill do. Beginning to wonder if i'll ever be able to connect to the net on Redhat lol.

Do you have perl installed? It could be that some distros call perl 'perl-base' and vice versa.

I've had a look at the dependancies for version 0.5-2 of eciadsl-usermode, and it doesn't mention anything perl related, so if you can't get the eciadsl-usermode package you're using to work, then you might want to go back to an earlier version.

I am having the same issue with Red hat 9.0.

I went through the CD and found PERL and tried to install it using

#rpm -i perl-5.8.0-88.i386.rpm

and receieved the following

warning: perl-5.8.0-88.i386.rpm: v3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key id db42a60e

package perl-5.8.0-88 is already installed


So i got to install eciadsl again with

#rpm -i eciadsl-usermode-0.9-1.i586.rpm

and get
error: Failed Dependencies:
perl-base is needed by eciadsl-usermode-0.9-1.i586.rpm

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Cheers

I just tried version 0.8 and it installed fine. So not sure what the issue is with 0.9.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Cheers

Yea I just installed version 0.8 and it worked fine too except I think I am getting a synch problem but I think thats easily fixed.

Thanks for the help


Edit -

Ok the eciadsl site said to use synch01 or synch03 for the DSL-200 modem. So I tried both of them and this is what I got:

Synch01 -

setting up USB support (1/5)..

loading UHCI support
usb-uhci loaded successfully

loading firmware (2/5)..

firmware seems to be already loaded

setting up modem (3/5)..

ECI load 2: failed
ECI load 2: timeout
failed to get synchronization

Synch03 -

setting up USB support (1/5)..

loading UHCI support
usb-uhci loaded successfully

loading firmware (2/5)..

firmware seems to be already loaded

setting up modem (3/5)..

ECI load 2: timeout
failed to get synchronization

Any ideas? Dantonm did you get the same problem if so what did you do?

Basically i kept trying all the synch files making sure i disconnected the modem for 15 - 20 seconds between each attempt. Apparently my BT modem has a certain amount of memory after loss of power so you have to make sure you unplug it for at least 15 seconds.

I eventually hit pay dirt on synch07. Got a successful connection to BT. Woo Hoo.

Now i just have to figure out how to configure the connection properly in Red Hat as although I can ping IP's from the terminal window i still have no luck with the browser. go figure. In windows i would assume this is a DNS issue but as I am an absolute Linux Newb i have no idea.

Back to Google I go....

Cheers
