mandrake 10.1 --- Linuxant drivers problem (?)and a hostname question


hello ppl...

still having a problem with my greek locales ... and I dont have a clue

and now for two more questions:

1) my lousy winmodem is supported by the sick linuxant drivers but there is a hickup:
I installed the drivers... I run hcfpciconfig... I can connect to the net and the I HAVE TO RUN hcfpciconfig again or else '/dev/modem can't be found' by kppp:

i.e. {hcfpciconfig
kppp -c ispname
connect...ok
disconnect
shutdown
powerup
kppp - c ispname
/dev/modem not found
oh crap
hcfpciconfig
all ok...} (repeat)^n

is that some sick new trick in the code of the drivers or am I doing something wrong??

2) my computer's name is 'localhost' by default... HOW DO I CHANGE IT to 'blah' so bash show user@blah and not user@localhost

---
Thanks in advance

1) You should also be able to type the linuxant device name directly into kppp (ttySHCF0 or something). From the package FAQ, though...
Quote:
On devfs-based systems (such as Mandrake), the missing device nodeis often a sign that the driver modules didn't load or initialize properly. Try "modprobe hcfpciserial" (or hcfusbserial), then check the /var/log/messages file or run "dmesg" to see any kernel error messages that could provide a clue as to why loading of the driver failed.
So you may need to check that the module is actually installed when needed (at boot time even).

2) Edit /etc/hostname.

Cheers,

mj

first of all, thank you!

1)modprobe hcfpciserial and then dmseg reads:
ttySHCF0 at MMIO 0x0 (irq = 5) is a Conexant HCF controllerless PCI modem
Code:
CSLIP: code copyright 1989 Regents of the University of California
PPP generic driver version 2.4.2
PPP BSD Compression module registered
PPP Deflate Compression module registered
which seems normal


2) /etc/hostname does not exist

I've created one but I cannot reboot cause I running some pretty large clustalw's for my work... more news tonight, after 4 am (CET)...

A few more thoughts:

1) Run <lsmod> before and after modprobing, to check that the module was actually installed. If still no errors, then add the module to /etc/modules to have it loaded at boot time.

2) Can also use the <hostname> command if you wish.

Cheers,

mj
