Question Conexant pci adsl modem


I'm trying to get my conexant pci adsl modem to work with mandrake
9.2, but I am stuck! I was following this document
members.tripod.com/alord/pciadsl/pciadsl.html and got about a third
of the way through to the section that talks about changing kgcc to gcc. I
have done this, but when I type ./configure I get an error telling me that
it isnt there. I tried typing 'make' but got pages full of errors. Can
anyone tell me where I'm going wrong? or if possible does anyone have a
precompiled module for this kernel?

Another possible solution would be if I used Mandrake 9.1 which has a precompiled module available, but I cant even get this to install at the moment because I have a SATA hard drive connected to a promise 20376 controller. The drive gets found in mandrake 9.2 though - wish i could have a combination of both

Thanks for your time

I went through that whole document and I didn't see the place you're talking about (kgcc to gcc), at what point in that document did things break?

thanks for replying. I'm at the line that says:

Edit the makefile and change kgcc to gcc. This is just before the section called 'Testing The Module'

When I try to compile it I'm getting loads of errors saying things are missing etc. I've never done anything like this before so I cant really narrow down whats the matter. !!

Ok, found it, he says you get some "minor" errors, but you're getting a lot more than that?
if so, maybe you don't have the development package installed? you may need to go to the mandrake control center and the software installer and install that package. A quick check at the console for at least gcc would be rpm -q gcc.

How about the kernel source package, what does rpm -q kernel-source say? if you don't get a version back like you did for gcc then use the control center and install that package.

I think I'm very close now. When I start up Mandrake I get the following:

Starting Conexant AccessRunner
Connexant AccessRunner load complete!

I hear a single click, then after about 1 minute i get [FAILED]

The click sounds like what happens when it starts up in Windows, only it clicks a few more times untill it syncs in windows.

When I try to run the start script from the command line I get:

Connexant AccessRunner download is already done, Status=ffffffff bad ioctl=400,2505(TIG_START_DSL), status=ffffffff

When I type 'ifconfig -a' i dont get the ppp0 that the document says I should. I only see 3 things eth0 and eth0:9 and a loopback.

Any ideas that I can try next?

I agree, you are at least *closer* now, but...

This is now over my head, I'm truly sorry I knew we'd get to this point eventually, I can't get adsl or even dsl, (but my cable rocks!), I know how to get kernel modules to compile, but to set up the connection you're trying to set up is something I hesitate to offer recommendations for, I don't want to lead you astray, better you post a new thread that focuses specifically on the setup (something like "adsl setup problems with conexant modem")

Hi...

i see that you have successufuly compiled the CnxAdsl.o under mandrake 9.2.

I got the same problem as you at the beginning, ie the ./configure does not work.

I had Gcc 3.3.1 installed
I had Kernel-source 2.4.22 installed, but nothing happened when i make the configure.

I've tried to do "make" instead, but i got many errors....

Can you help me in compiling theses drivers please ?

If the module is loaded what do have in /proc/net/atm/CnxAdsl:0 ?? Simply cat'ing the file will show you.

cheers

Hey, Thanks,

but when i do a cnxadslctl status, it says to me that this file (CnxADSL:0) does not exist.

So i do a lsmod, and the module CnxADSL is here, so i do not understand what could happen. i'll see if i can see the file manually as you said, maybe the script has a problem (i hope).
