Hello guys, could really use you help on this,
I've try to install on my fresh copy of Slack 10.1 a USB modem driver for BIPAC-7000 (which I downloaded from here: http://www.billion.com/support/download/fd/fd1.htm
I extracted it, and follow the readme instruction below:
'First, uncompressing the packaged: USBNET_E2_LINUX_062802_REL1.7.tar.gz
#tar zxvpf USBNET_E2_LINUX_062802_REL1.7.tar.gz
A directory named e2 will be created under current directory.
Second, Changing directory to the "e2" directory.
Third, compiling the source code.
At last, copy the firmware file "CnxE2Fw.bin" to directory "/etc".
#cp CnxE2Fw.bin /etc/CnxE2Fw.bin
Now, you can install the driver by the command below under current directory:
now this is where trouble begin, the next step readme told me to do was to issue a command 'ifconfig hsb0 up' which I did and got error saying that no such device exist.
here the readme text :
'If the network doesn't up automatically, you must run the following commands to activate the net adapter.
#ifconfig hsb0 up
#dhcpcd -n hsb0'
what did I do wrong? sorry if this seems very newbie to you all but I'm really new to this(I fact, this is the first time I successfully complies a program using 'make' command)
Thanks in advance guy.
