How to install modem driver with Mandrake 10 ?
 
I'm fairly new to linux. I have downloaded a driver for my conexant USB ADSL modem but how to I install it ?

newtolinuxalso; confused? is mdk already installed? if so u installing modem? yes, then mdk may locate it id it and process it, unless u would want to manually mount it then let mdk id it?

What do you mean mount the floppy ? and where do I type these cmds in a terminal screen. sorry but you'll have to be more detailed, thanks

Modem
 
yes write it in terminal

newtolinuxalso 07-08-2004 03:18 PM

Not getting anywhere. It seems I'm already in the floppy location when I open a terminal but ./conigure does nothing

Modem
 
well tell me complete directry structure when u open that floppy...it would help me to understand

newtolinuxalso 07-08-2004 03:41 PM

I have copied the folder from the floppy drive which contains the modem driver to the desktop. The folder is named cxacru. If I right click on the folder I use the option under Actions 'open terminal here'

First I type ./configure I then get no such file or directory
Then I type make I get ' ' ' No such rule 'module2' , needed by 'clean' . stop

make install I get no rule to make 'install' stop

I'm totally lost !!!
