Well, first of all, I really didnt know where to put this post, it is somewhat hardware related.. but the real problem could be something as simple as throwing some cmds in the Bash shell.. if I commited a mistake in posting in this section, I apologize..
I was trying to install some custom drivers for my PCtel (P.O.S.) modem.. with the instructions in this file.. http://www.peacefulaction.org/sayamindu/pctel.html
In chapter 5 it says that you gotta type two cmds:
I tried make configure
and it didnt work (cant remember the error tho).. so I tried make config
(thought maybe that could bethe real name... It stepped me through a load of questions.. was that the right thing to do??
Second, In section 7.7 it says that if you dont have your Linux source code on the default /usr/src/linux
.. you have to do a ls -s /"real dir" /usr/src/linux/
to create a symbolic link... I tried that.. and it kept saying that the dir didnt exist.. even when I had copy/pasted the path from the file browser.. I also tried the other cmd which consisted of configuring the drivers to look for the *.h file in a certain dir.. but that didnt work either..
So I couldnt install the drivers, for the needed "*.h" file (cant remember the name) could not be found..
note: I was logged in as root.. and Im using Red Hat 8.0 with kernel 2.4.14-18 (I might have typed it wrong tho)..
So, after all that, perhaps unnecessary, info.. how do i get to fix that?
Thanks in advance!
