Hey guys, sorry for another post. I dissed Mandrake hoping RH would auto detect my modem that is hooked up via usb. I tried going into my internet setup thing but I cant find my modem in there. And I was told that compiling the kernal wouold help? I have no clue on how to do any of that, and Im a real NEWB at linux. I only know about 20 commands so far (cd,ls,touch,more,etc). Is there any way I can get connected to the net? When i tried Knoppix, the first time i used it I was connected to the net without even configureing anything. I was wandering if there is a way to do that in RH or Mandrake. If they had a REAL version of Knoppix out there that you ACTUALLY install oh man that would be SOO great. Hope you guys can help me.
Yeah you see, the problem is, I dont know the type of modem i have. Its unmarked, and I dont have the papers or booklets on it cuz i am renting it from Charter Communications. I was told the only way to get my Cable Modem to work is to recompile the Kernel. I have no clue on how to do this. Is there a script out there that will do it for me WITHOUT having to be online (I have the newest version, I just need to install the kernel). Also, I might be going back to mandrake cuz RH is too 'big' for me... the graphics are worste than windowz xp :S . anyways, hope you guys can help me
What is "cable modem"? Externel? In some cases, you don't need to recompile your kernel, just compile the driver and insert it as a module. I am in this case.
Have you tried to search on google your modem driver under linux?
