Sagem F@st 800 Driver instalation problem


I've got a bit of a problem with my modem. I got my sagem 800 F@st modem free when I got my tiscali ADSL acount and I went to the Sagem site and discovered that it is compatible with linux (Yipee) and that there are drivers for it. I downloaded them and followed the instructions that came with them. I got to the bit where it askes you to su to root and type

./INSTALL_ALL linux 2.4.18-14

I did this and it went wrong. On closer inspection I realised that this was cos I didn't have the kernel source on my system so I fixed that and it all started doing it's compily thing. It then displayed error things at the end of it and stoped. Out put is thus (or at least the end part of it as it is too long to put in a thread)

Hi Draylath

Its probaly not what you want to hear but...

I had the same problem and posted in a numberof groups. Many kind people answered, some whom had been successful in getting the modem to run.

Unfortunately no matter how much I tried I never did.

The best advice I ever received was to pop long to Argos (if you are in the UK) and purchase a Binatone adsl 2000 ethernet modem/router, it costs about 45 and has runwithout a flaw since I first installed it. It also has a USB oonnection so you could run a seond computer with another OS on it if you wanted.

I'm sure there are other such devices that work as well but for me I would never go back to the Sagem now.

I hope someone can give you a way to get the Sagem to run. As I say, I never did and wasted hours trying. Now I'm just enjoying using the computert!

Good luck

Ok, I'll give getting some new hardware a go. I t seems everyone is talking about this "ethernet" thing and "NIC" also. Only problem is I don't know what it is about. What do I ask for in the shop? Is it one peice of harware or two (modem/router)? you know the kind of questions. And if anyone can suggest anything to get my existing hardware working I would appreciate it, I have a bottle of wine ready to celebrate my first post here from a linux system

Its one piece of hardware that connects to the ethernet port of your computer. The port will be onboard the motherboard or as a seperate card. The cable to connect comes with the hardware (at least it did with the Binatone I bought) The modem/router is setup via software and is really easy to do. If I can do it anyone can! Just keep learning, its worth it.

If you do not have an ethernet port as part of the motherboard you will need to buy a network interface card (NIC) They are not expensive but get one with a LED indicator showing its in use when lit up or flickering when passing data. They cost about 12 - 15 ?

I know more expense again..... If your computer is relatively new,make sure there is no ethernet port, it looks just like a modem connection, but slightly a different size, a lot of modern boards have them... if you still ahve the documentation for the computer check that.... may only save you 12 quid but its money better in your pocket!

Will any NIC work with linux or are there compatibility problems?

they should all work. avoid cheapo ones. if in doubt search the internet for the linux hardware database and see if there are ones to avoid. i've never had a problem
