I have bad news, it did not work.
Although we don't have the same USB motem, i was fortunate enough to find a similiar tutorial for my Speed Touch USB in the very same page at webconexion.net/speedtouch/index.php . So, went ahead and downloaded all the necessary files -as required by the tutorial itself- for the installation, burn to a CD and, to later find out that, i couldn't get pass by this:
1b - speedmgmt.tar.gz
Copy the speedmgmt.tar.gz file to /usr/src and decompress as follows:
tar -zxvf speedmgmt.tar.gz
To confirm this has been decompressed correctly, type the following:
You should receive the following:
1c - speedtouch-1.1-1.i586.rpm
Install the speedtouch-1.1-1.i586.rpm as follows:
rpm -i speedtouch-1.1-1.i586.rpm
To confirm this has been installed correctly, type the following:
You should receive a response that shows /etc/speedtouch.confas well as other locations, although the others are not relevant in this document.
Here is what i did:
I logged on as root, since i could not understand the intructions shown above in 1B, i though that the wisest thing for me to do, would be to create a Directory named /src, copy the file there and unzip them there. Then i typed at the Shell prompt 'whereis mgmt' and nothing would come out, even though the file was there. All i would get was "mgmt", instead of "mgmt.o: /usr/src/mgmt/mgmt.o"
Step 1C, was very much like 1B.
This guide it's the same as Redhat's 9 Getting on Line Guide, whereby once it's not provide with enough relevant info -and it's assumed that everyone is a Linux guru- and are left pretty much by oneself to figure things out.
Any help or guidence will be great.
