for the redhat 7.2 i was just trying to show examples
of the filenames. i think he has redhat 9.
it would be an individual package. gcc3something.
we know it's installed because you compiled the pctel
modules with it. i haven't used the package manager
that comes with redhat now, so i don't know what
to tell you to click.

rpm -e gcc* --nodeps --force

i think would get it for sure.
the packages add/remove program is using rpm
in the background.
if you do that command above, you can then install
gcc-2.96 something, then redo your pctel stuff.

i have no idea, but where you got before, with
the modules installed, would have been it, if you
didn't have gcc3 installed, but we didn't know that.
you just have to do the same thing with the older
compiler.

you don't have to configure your kernel. that kernel
that comes with redhat is preconfigured. you just
have to install the kernel source.
if you've installed the kernel source you can make a
symlink with that ln -s /usr/src/linux-2.4.20-8 /usr/src/linux

there is a file inside that pctel-0.9.6 directory
called INSTALL. you can open it with a text editor
or word processor. if you are getting the error about
"you need to configure your kernel source" then that
means the pctel software cannot find the kernel source.
the other option is to type the full kernel path into
the configure command

./configure --with-kernel-includes=/usr/src/linux-2.4.20-8/include --with-hal=pct789

i just thought that would be harder, since any space
slash or path wrong would make it not work.

the contents of the INSTALL file


PCTEL Linux PCI driver, version 0.9.6
-------------------------------------
Description
-----------
This package contains the PCTEL driver for various PCTEL modems for linux.
It is meant for kernel 2.4.x, up to 2.4.18 so far.
Installation
------------
0) Unpack the tarball by typing "tar zxvf pctel-0.9.6.tar.gz"
1) Go into that directory by typing "cd pctel-0.9.6"
2) Find out what chipset you have in your board:
3) ./configure
Options:
--with-hal=hal
Select one of: pct789, cm8738, i8xx, sis, via686a
--with-kernel-includes=/path/to/my/kernel-sources/include
If you don't have your kernel sources at /usr/src/linux, specifiy
your includes
4) Compile the modules by typing "make"
5) If everything went fine, get root by typing "su"
7) Install the drivers by typing "make install"
8) You are now ready to use your modules.
Type "insmod pctel" and "insmod ptserial".
You should see in your logs ("tail /var/log/messages") something like:
May 16 23:28:17 suba kernel: PCTel initialization. Country code is 2.
May 16 23:28:17 suba kernel: PCTel device[00:11.0](0x88) found "PCTel Inc HSP MicroModem 56 $
May 16 23:28:17 suba kernel: PCTel driver version 0.9.6 [5.05c-4.27.215 (09-14-2001)]] (PCT7$
May 16 23:28:17 suba kernel: PCTel driver built on [Linux 2.4.8 i686 unknown] with [2.95.3].
May 16 23:28:17 suba kernel: ttyS15 at 0xe800 (irq = 9) is a PCtel
Notes:
You can always uninstall the modules by typing "make uninstall". If you
need to recompile the modules, "make clean" and "make" are your friends.

then the kernel source isn't installed.
but i think the path is
is /usr/src/linux-2.4.20-8/include
notice the dash before the 8, not a period.
if you typed a period, it shouldn't have worked.
if you typed the path right, then the source isn't installed.

ok, i'm gone for the day now.
don't forget what snagged you yesterday.
you have to have the kernel source installed.
you have to have gcc-2.9something installed but
not have 3.0something installed. you almost had
it yesterday, if redhat had compiled that kernel with
gcc-3.0 then it would have worked. you just have to
get those modules compiled with gcc-2.9X.
when you get them compiled and installed
the insmod commands will load the modules.
you will have to do that every time you boot linux, until
you change some settings to get them to load
automatically.
You might can get MasterC to help you if you are lucky.
He's very good at explaining things to newbies.

I'm thinking about going to PM MasterC. I don't see anything about PM. You know Private Message. It's a really quick question for anyone. Where is the PM located at in this site??
