Well I'm a newbie to linux...a very newbie..hehe...had to look up how to use ls as I kept using dir......just installed mandrake 9.2 now...and my first goal is to get my internet...adsl working
I've a Fujitsu FDX310 adsl usb modem...and I downloaded eciadsl from sourceforge...on another pc...and ran install...config etc... and I got to this stage:..where I get errors and can't connect...and am unsure what to do next...or what Iv'e done wrong with the setup.
This is what I get when I type startmodem:
[root@localhost eciadsl_usermode_0.8]# startmodem
setting up USB support (1/5)..
loading OHCI support
/lib/modules/2.4.22-10mdk/kernel/drivers/usb/host/usb-ohci.o.gz: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
modprobe: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.22-10mdk/kernel/drivers/usb/host/usb-ohci.o.gz failed
modprobe: insmod usb-ohci failed
couldn't load usb-ohci module
loading TAP/TUN support

loading firmware (2/5)..

setting up modem (3/5)..
