basic question


Hi

I am running rh9 kernel 2.4.20-8

I would appreciate if someone could tell me how to install the following driver for my adsl modem

zx630-11-2003-07-14-src.gz

I am able to gunzip -d zx630-11-2003-07-14-src.gz to get

zx630-11-2003-07-14-src

but dont know what to do next

Thanks

jaina

cd to the unzipped directory - there'll be files in caps such as README and INSTALL. Read those and do what they say. It's usually simply a sequence of commands:

./configure
make
su
(password)
make install

but not always, so you need to read the docs to make sure about any particular details. Plus, with drivers, you'll need to find out about the 'mod' commands such as 'insmod' and 'lsmod' depending on how the drivers 'set themselves up', so to speak. So 'man lsmod' and such will get you started there.

If you have any trouble post back - I don't know how much I could help but somebody will.
