Hi. This is my first time on this forum.
I need to install a 3rd party program into Linux OS
I do not have an ethernet connection.
I have an AVM Fritz pci card.
AVM have downloaded an AVM fritz program for linux.
I cannot go online until this program is installed and works.
I do know I must instal program from a cd
I think I must use a terminal but after this point I know no more.
All help would be most appreciated.
Have AVM Fritz pci Card Teledat 330. Is oem version. Supplies by server
and was in german. AVM gave me an english Fritz version. AVM also gave me a version for Linux Fritz.
I need to know how to install a linux program into the linux OS.
My connection is DSL.
My Linux OS is at moment WUBI.
I cannot install on to hard drive until I know how to connect online.
I have been to all repositories of all versions of Linux and this program is not there.
Ihave the progam and need help installing.
I don't read German very well, but a quick search indicates that a "teledat 330" is a DSL modem. Is the PCI card something that came with the modem? Does the computer have any ethernet connection other than with the card?
Please do "dmesg | grep eth" as requested earlier. Also "ifconfig". We need to see if your system is detecting the card
I have a AVM (Fritz)PCI DSL Card installed in the computer.
I do not need an ethernet connection even though one is on the motherboard.
I just need to know how to install a AVM (Fritz) program into a linux OS.
If I cannot find out this information then linux is not of much use to me.
I must be able to go on line. I have program just need to know how to install it.
It is likely that you will continue needing help until you actually help the people who are trying to help you. It is possible that the program you have is unsuitable for the version of Linux that you have, but it is effectively impossible to tell unless you actually give the answers to the questions asked.
It is also the case that installation instructions would be completely different for a .tar.gz from a .deb and a .rpm would be different again.
Also, if you happened to have SuSE this whole discussion would have been a waste of space because SuSE comes with FritzCard drivers and the first recourse would have been to use them (SuSE is popular in the region in which the Fritz stuff also seems popular...).
Hi Do not have suse
Linuz can find PCI internet card but no drivers.
Have opened 3rd party program and does not say what type of file only they seem window files. I am not an expert on compters. Just mr average and if I cannot find away to install a simple program in linux will forget.
The 3rd program states was designed for suse but states should work in most linux OSs
Please tell us what files you have--exact names. You say you "opened 3rd-party program"--that must mean that you extracted an archive to a folder. Simply go to that folder and run ls -l. Post the results here.
As an alternative, tell us where we can download the program you are trying to use.
Also, in an earlier post, you said this:
I have run both linux commands as asked and my PCI card is not found as there is no program in PCI card
Will give up on linux
Seems most do not really understand my problem or if think do ask for information that really has nothing to do with problem.
All I wanted too do was install a program into linux got no real help just agrivation for me can forget linux until they can come up with system that is as easy as windows.
