Hsdspa 3G Data Card driver possible install
 
Hallo all!

First of all I beg your pardon in advance for all nonsenses in my post due to my ignorance.

Only few days ago i discovered Puppy and i was very impressed by performances offered.

Installing ver. 3.01 - on a usb pen - puppy recognizes most of the hardware built in my laptop -FujitsuSiemens P7010-.(I note some drivers are missing eg. : driver for the Ricoh Co Ltd R5C552 SD Bus Host Adapter and therefore SD cards are not "seen" but that is not so important to me). Network and Wlan cards are both recognized as well as internal Agere soft modem.

One thing which i miss very much is the possibility to use my HSDSPA 3G Datacard (T-Mobile PCMCIA Web'n Walk card)

This cardbus card has GPRS and UMTS capabilities.

After the card is inserted in the PCMCIA slot pupScan finds it among the PCI devices:

DESCRIPTION Option N.V. Quaalcom MSM6275 UMTS Chip
VENDOR: 1931 DEVICE: 000c KERNEL MODULE : unknown

I understand from various posts i have been reading that it should be detected as a USB device and supported by the option driver (nozomi) attached to the HowTo in the following link:

I am totally new to linux and my attempts to install the Datacard driver in the kernel (following howtos i tried with puppy 3.00beta 2.2.22 for which devfx where availabke) were unsuccessful.


I also understand that it should be supported by the option driver (nozoma) attached to the HowTo in the following link:

http://mybroadband.co.za/vb/showthread.php?t=21726

I understand from various posts that it requires drivers in the kernel:
Device Drivers --->
USB support --->
<*> Support for Host-side USB
<*> OHCI HCD support
USB Serial Converter support --->
<*> USB Serial Converter support
<*> USB Option PCMCIA serial driver

I also understand that it gets four serial ports assigned.

Can somebody give some advise and/or suggest if i can hope the driver is included in a future release of the distro?

regards

Today i found there is a drive for various distributions of linux for the vodafone connect card (which has the same hardware) at this link:

Can somebody please give me advise how to install driver (and dependencies) in puppy.

Also a link to a general howto would be appreciated.
