Hi there slackers,
I have Slackware 13+current as of Jan 31, 2010. Except that kernel is 188.8.131.52_smp. I brought yesterday a new Globe Tattoo prepaid kit (a wireless broadband kit -- mobile broadband service here in the Philippines) which uses Huawei E1552 HSDPA USB stick (usb modem).
I understand that they don't natively support linux but from what I've learned, they are the most linux friendly wireless broadband provider. There are few success stories about installing them on Ubuntu, Xandros, Linux Mint and OpenSuSE.
I do searched the net and found:
Which says I need to compile to create a huaweiAktBbo but when run, it says 'dev' failed. (Compile succeed though).
I tried kppp but my Huawei USB stick is detected as USB storage and not as a modem, so i need to use usb_modeswitch.
I grab it from http://slackbuilds.org/repository/13...sb_modeswitch/
and tried to download the source but it seems that SlackBuilds has not updated yet its link (and the slackbuild package). I tried to make and make install the latest source from http://www.draisberghof.de/usb_modeswitch/
but I think I forget that switch-data and conf, anyway I have to re-download again.
Do I need libusb? Or slackware 13 already have it? (I just learn while typing this that I forgot to download the switch-data and the conf file)
Another thing, I found this:
But it says I need the qt compat lib from /extra? Is it this: http://www.slackware.at/data/slackwa...-i486-opt1.txz
I think kppp will do the job, but I must gather more information first before going home.
Any other things to consider?
