How I install network-manager and relatives to connect mobile internet in linux?


Hola!

I am a user or consumer of Knoppix 5.1 and Knoppix 6.2, I see in 6.2 version a very usefully tool, an icon in task bar thats help my internet connection in auto, even if I use a mobile modem like Huawei E160, I only select a 'Auto Mobile Broadband (GSM) connection' and, voila, internet is active. Into version 5.1 don't exist this option. I need to find packages like network-manager.... and all relatives and install in 5.1 in correct order to success.

Thank You.

Why not just upgrade to the latest Knoppix release? You should be able to save your personal settings by saving your home directory, then restoring it. In a terminal, use these commands:

To Save:
cp -a -p /source(your home directory)/* /destination(backup device)/*

To restore:
cp -a -p /source(backup device)/* /destination(your new home directory)/*

cp -a -p copies all files in the directory & sub-directories and maintains permissions.

Hope this helps.

I see thats is necessary to explain another aspect, I use Knoppix 5.1 in CD and Knoppix 6.2 in CD, in an external hard disk I save some other programs and installers, like Skype, I wrote a script to help my automated installation of programs usefully for me, as flash, skype, planetary viewers, and other. I don't use a permanent image or copy of each Knoppix in hard disk or magnetic media. My issue is thats I need to save a package copy in my external hard disk, and when I need, install some of my programs for use him, I init my work with a command in boot place of Knoppix, thus, Knoppix toram, press Enter, take a time to view KDE or LXDE, when I use KDE (Knoppix 5.1) I don't have an application to automatically view my Huawei E160 mobile modem, but, if I use LXDE (Knoppix 6.2) in the task bar appear an icon with double PC monitors, and, if I click on this, voila, I have internet active trough Huawei E160 mobile modem. I need to know how much packages I need to save an use to make this possible in Knoppix 5.1.

And, in response of your idea of upgrade, the latest Knoppix release is 6.2 with LXDE, but I have some inabilities in KDE, managing commands and applications. On time to take time, I practice in LXDE, thank you for your response, but my question is: how I do a copy of libraries, packages and application to automation in use all option in any CD copy of Knoppix.

Thank to You, to take a time to response.
