Help with intel 536ep modem and Suse 9.1


Hi, I'm new to Linux, running Suse 9.1 (Personal Edition, so i installed gcc on my own), and having problems trying to install my Intel 536ep "winmodem". I know people have been having problems with this modem, but I saw that Intel actually released the driver for Suse 9.1(installed from "intel-536ep-4.69-suse91-smp.tgz")
So following the readme.txt instructions, this is what i get:

linux:/home/lnebrown/Desktop/modem stuff/Another try/intel-536EP-4.69-suse91-smp # make clean
cd coredrv; make clean
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/lnebrown/Desktop/modem stuff/Another try/intel-536EP-4.69-suse91-smp/coredrv'
rm -f *.ko *.o *~ core
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/lnebrown/Desktop/modem stuff/Another try/intel-536EP-4.69-suse91-smp/coredrv'
rm -f *.o *.ko

So can anybody help me out? I very badly want to ditch windows, but I'd prefer not to buy a new modem.

Much appreciated,

CLB

Thanks, I may try that.

But in the meantime, do the error messages above show that I need to install some package or anything else?

It seems to me that the first error is:
diff: /boot/vmlinuz.autoconf.h: No such file or directory

what do i need to install to get this header file?

Are you doing this as root? That's the only thing I can really think of.

Currently, I'm also having trouble installing (from the source) on FC2. This is strange since I've installed it about four times on FC2 already with absolutely no problems. Anyway, I hope you get this solved

inebrown; question? how about rechecking entries ,redoing & go slower without making errors in entring commands or misspelling. that may be where error may show problem?
slow down go carefully methodically & step by step.

Ooooooooohhhhh... I figured out your problem. lol! So simple, I should've seen it before.

Okay, when you do "make install" you get the error that there is no intel536.ko The reason for this error is this: "Intel536.ko" is the driver. If you look at the last line of "make 536", you'll see:

Quote:
Failed to build driver
The reason that it failed is because of this line right here:

Quote:
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `stuff/Another'. Stop.
It's because it doesn't work with spaces. It thinks that "linux:/home/lnebrown/Desktop/modem" is the directory and that "stuff/Another" is the file. Just extract the tar to your home directory ("/home/lnebrown") and do it again. It should work just fine. Just be sure that you install while logged in as root. This doesn't work when you're logged in as a user with root priveleges. I just figured that out today.

Let me know if this helps.

lnebrown - congrats on finding the solution. It would be helpful to future readers if you described what you did to achieve these results. (I assume it was thegsusfreak's advice that led to the solution; spaces in directory names IMO should be avoided)

penguin4 - if you have an issue or problem with a mod, please take it up with the mod directly or contact the site admin (aka jeremy). -- J.W.

the modem installed correctly when I extracted the install files into the ...home\username\ directory as thegsusfreak suggested. I previously tried running the files from another directory, and the folder names had spaces, and that is what gave me the initial error. I'm not sure if it would have run in the original location if I had taken out the spaces in the directory name.
