Hello everyone, I'm trying to install my modem's driver and I make it successfully to step 6. After that I'm not sure how to input the step 6 command
Add 'options' directive line to file '/etc/modules.conf'
. Do they just want me to go into that file and change this (options slmdm country=USA)? Any help will be greatful. I just install Mandrake 10.0 and I would like to get my computer where I wont even need to boot to windows.
1. Unpack tar.gz package file:
$ gzip -dc slmdm-2.X.X.tar.gz | tar xf -
2. 'cd' to package directory:
$ cd slmdm-2.X.X
3. Review and edit (if need) 'Makefile'.
Note: Probably you will want to correct in Makefile path to your
local linux kernel header files:
Another way is to pass command line the parameter while
$ make KERNEL_INCLUDES=/path/to/linux/include ...
4. Run 'make' command to compile package:
If you are going to use AMR/CNR/PCI modem type (as superuser):
# make install-amr
# make install-usb
if you are going to use USB modem.
It will install:
- modem kernel modules slmdm.o (modem core), slfax.o (fax)
into '/lib/modules/<kernel-version>/misc' directory
(standard linux modules' directory).
- hardware specific kernel module slamrmo.o (for AMR/CNR/PCI) or
slusb.o (for USB) into '/lib/modules/<kernel-version>/misc'
directory (standard linux modules' directory).
- country settings data file 'country.dat' into directory '/etc'.
Also it will:
- create character tty device entry '/dev/ttySL0' with major
number 212 and symbolic link 'dev/modem'.
- config you '/etc/modules.conf' file in order to provide
possibility for loading the modem modules into kernel on demand
automatically by kmod, when you are going to use them.
Note: currently you cannot use both AMR/CNR/PCI and USB Modems.
6. Config modem country.
You can configure your current country by using module parameters
'country' or 'country_code'.
Add 'options' directive line to file '/etc/modules.conf':
options slmdm country=<MyCountry>
, for example
options slmdm country=USA
, or use module parameter while module loading:
# modprobe slmdm country=<MyCountry>
Use 'slver -c' to see list of all supported countries and their
codes (utility 'slver' may be found in package directory).
Note: Command ATI7 shows installed country setting.
