Fedora Core 2 ADSL


Hello Everybody,

Iím thinking to install a USB ASDL modem to my Linux box, but I have at the moment only a Redhat 9.0 driver in RPM. Can I use this for my Fedora Core 2?

Iím using a Billion Bipac-7000 ADSL modem?

If somebody has more information about this modem or knows where I can find the right driver(s) then I would be very gratefulÖ..

With kind regards,

Richard

If the driver rpm is redhat 9 kernel specific then it will not work. is there a *.src.rpm ? this file you can use to build your own rpm on fedora

Hello Hitman,

I have a file what called USBNET_E2_LINUX_062802_REL1.7.tar.gz.

The readme:

First, uncompressing the packaged: USBNET_E2_LINUX_062802_REL1.7.tar.gz
#tar zxvpf USBNET_E2_LINUX_062802_REL1.7.tar.gz
A directory named e2 will be created under current directory.

Second, Changing directory to the "e2" directory.
#cd e2

Third, compiling the source code.
#make

At last, copy the firmware file "CnxE2Fw.bin" to directory "/etc".
#cp CnxE2Fw.bin /etc/CnxE2Fw.bin

Now, you can install the driver by the command below under current directory:
#insmod e2.o

If you would like to installing driver anywhere else, Please copy the e2.o to
the directory: /lib/modules/2.4.xx-xxx/kernel/drivers/usb first.

If the network doesn't up automatically, you must run the following commands to activate the net adapter.
#ifconfig hsb0 up
#dhcpcd -n hsb0

Upgrade the firmware:
Replace the firmware file "/etc/CnxE2Fw.bin" with the new release. Note that the file
name must be case sensitive.

It sounds easy...I have not that much trust in easy things in Linux therefore I wanted to ask if somebody has experience with this?

With kind regards,

Richard

I have copied the CnxE2Fw.bin to /etc but the following panic occurs when I connect adsl usb modem to my board:

....Firmware image file does not exist.
Please check if the file "/etc/Config.dat" exists. The file name is case sensitive.

Fun to see a really old post of myself.

Okay I fixed the problem by downloading the general Linux driver from the Billion website (http://www.billion.com/support/download/fd/fd1.htm)

And followed the readme to make the driver (this needs the Kernel source)
