Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

since redhat 8.0 comes with gcc-3 I downloaded the
sm56-gcc3.tar.gz file from blah blah
for some reason when I try this driver with the
default installation kernel I get a Segmentation fault
message, so I downloaded
cpp-2.96-98.i386.rpm and gcc-2.96-98.i386.rpm from
rpmfind.net and with gnorpm removed the default gcc-3
and cpp-3 from my system and installed the 2.96
version of both files, and so I recompiled the kernel
again, more detailed I did a
make mrproper; cp configs/kernel-2.4.18-i686.config
make oldconfig; make dep; make bzImage; make modules;
make modules_install; make install
this gave me a kernel-2.4.18-14custom kernel but
compiled with gcc-2.96 so I booted this custom kernel
and tried the sm56-gcc3 drivers and worked perfectly,
so there you go, thats how I got it running, thanks to
Rajesh Kizhuveetil for writing the driver and everyone
who helped me, well its 3.40 am and Im tired, good
Ok this is what i need to do.
Can someone put this into the exact way i have to do this?
Like step one do this then step 2 this etc as i'm not going to buy another modem because of this problem.
I have downloaded the 2 files needed, i have kernel developement installed and i have these files on my other hdd which automatically gets mounted .
Please understand it is my first time doing this kernel making.
Also i need to keep all my origanal files.
# Red Hat 7.3 down configuration commands setup leads to several configuration tools

Ok i have some little problem left before i can do the kernel.
The problem is unistalling the gcc that came with redhat 8.0 and installing the older one.
How can i do this as i get failed dependencies and i also try force unistall but no luck.
