Help me convert fully to slackware ;-)
Hi all slackers :) ,
I have been using slack for 3-4 months now.. but only for learning purposes.. trying out new s/w and playing around with things here and there...
But, now I want to convert to slackware fully...
Heres what I've done so far..
- Installed slackware 9.1 (penta-boot system with Win98 + WinXP + PCQLinux2004 + HD-install of Knoppix-STD + Slackware 9.1)
- Updated to Kernel 2.6.6
- Updated to KDE 3.2
- Updated to Dropline Gnome 2.6.0
- Updated to Xserver 4.4.0
- Update my NVIDIA drivers (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336)
- Installed all alternative softwares that I used on windows (Photoshop, Dreamweaver, a/v utilities, etc)
Now the part where I need some help :D
Hardware configuration and things went alright..
But my CDMA phone (LG RD 2030) ain't working, I use this for internet access most of the times...
Its connected to PC via USB Data cable
The LG phones act as serial modems. The USB cable provided with these phones is a FTDI SIO single port USB to serial converter device.
But, its not getting detected during boot-up.. :(
Altho I've loaded the module ftdi_sio and usbserial both (I have selected these when configuring the new kernel.. they are built-in)
On my PCQLinux (FEDORA CORE 1 based distro) "/var/log/syslog" looks like
I booted SLAX it detected the device (/dev/tts/0) and I was able to successfully configure it and was able to connect to the net.
So my questions:
- What should I do so that it gets detected
- There is no /dev/tts/0 on my system not even /dev/ttyUSB0 or anything similar to those, now what? :mad:
Thats it for now :D
Help me convert.. I'll be asking more nagging questions once this problem is solved :p
Take a look here: Serial HOWTO: Serial Port Devices /dev/tts/2 = /dev/ttyS2, etc.
