Sagem Broadband Driver problems


I have a Sagem Broadband modem.
I have downloaded a driver for it called Fast8x0_3-0-6.tgz
Documentation comes as a successful computer output of the
driver installation.
The steps are: unpack; apply patch which comes in the package;
./configure
make
make install
The process suceeds until the 'make install' which throws up two errors
MAKE[2] INSTALL ERROR 1
MAKE[1] INSTALL ERROR 2
There are two differences between my process and the example:
1) the example was for the driver package Fast8x0_3-0-3.tgz
2) the example was for Mandrake, Fedora Core, SuSE distributions.;
mine is RadHat.
Tiscali, my ISP, does not give Linux support and I have been unsucessful
in finding a source of Sagem support. Is it not possible to procure the driver
on CDROM?

Does that modem have an Ethernet port (RJ45) on it, or just USB? Most cable modems have both, that's why I ask. If the Sagem does have an Ethernet port, it would be MUCH easier to set the modem up on your ethernet card in linux than to use some cruddy drivers.

I agree with Visaris. If the modem is designed as a router with ethernet ports, definately use that connected to your ethernet card. You won't need a driver for the modem, just for your ethernet card. Will save you a lot of headaches.

Thank you Visaris & Masonm for your comments.
The modem was supplied by Tiscali & is USB only.
The PC has no ethernet card.
It sounds as if I would be well advised to invest in both a card & a new Modem.

Yeah, I hate to recommend that. It's always better if you can get the hardware you already own to work. Sometimes it just isn't realistic though. I would get a Ethernet card (nore more than $10) and a new cable modem ($?). This will end up saving you a lot of time in the end.

Osborne 1934,
I have a driver that works with Tiscali, at least it did for me. Let me know your email and I will send it to you.

EDIT: Just checked the size and its nearly 6MB. I may have trouble emailing a file that size. Have a look at http://www.eagle-usb.org
The driver file name is eagle-usb-1.9.9.1
If you get no luck let me know and I'll try and send it to you some other way.

Many thanks prh for your offer. I have decided to buy an ethernet card + ethernat modem, I shouldn,t need your driver. The sagem site gives no opportunity for feedback and no support for their products (unless I missed something on their site)
