Help me, about command line


I want to install my usb modem but when I do it with command line, linux shows me that " do not have permissions to write to this folder [etc] "

So I change to copy file by windows but It shows me that " you are not the owner ". Oh my god how can you say that Linux

How to write the file to this folder ?

Actually it makes me feel little angry, if I'am not the owner but why I can format you penguin.

Just because you don't know it doesn't make it bad.

All you need to do is to become root ...

in the shell type
su -
and give it your root-password when prompted.


Cheers,
Tink

And when I log in this dialog box always happen

" Could not look up internet address for localhost.localdomain. This will prevent GNOME from operating correctly. It may be possible to correct the problem by adding localhost.localdomain to to file /etc/hosts.

Log in anyway or Try again.


How to solve this problem ?

Post the contents of your /etc/hosts

Quite likely it misses:
Code:
# For loopbacking.
127.0.0.1       localhost

I still can't install my usb modem. It failed when I typed " make ". So I get the CnxE2Fw.bin from e2source and copy it to folder etc, ok this one I can pass it.

But I can't "insmod e2.o" this on so I still can't connect to the internet.

What should I do ? The below is the install guide.

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

This is my old tread about modem.

Thank You for your help ^_^
