can somebody please help to install modem


Hi,

can somebody please help to install modem??
the modem is something special only used here in UKraine but i got a tar file with drivers...
i just don't know how to aplly this...
i am only working 4 days with linux...(20 years windows experience)

this is how the makefile looks like

#ROOT = ./test
INCDIR = -I.
CFLAGS = -W -Wall -O2
LFLAGS = -s
CC = gcc
LD = ld
SHELL = /bin/sh
INSTALL = /usr/bin/install

####### Files

SRCS = async.c serport.c

OBJS = async.o serport.o

LIBDIR =
LIBS =

####### Implicit rules


.c.o:
$(CC) -c $(CFLAGS) $(INCDIR) $<

####### Build rules

all: async

async: $(OBJS)
$(CC) -o async $(OBJS) $(LIBDIR) $(LIBS) $(LFLAGS)


dep:
@makedepend $(INCDIR) $(SRCS) 2> /dev/null

clean:
rm -f core *.o *.bak *~ *% #*
rm -f async

install: async
$(INSTALL) -d -m 755 $(ROOT)/usr/bin
$(INSTALL) -s -m 744 async $(ROOT)/usr/bin
$(INSTALL) -d -m 755 $(ROOT)/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts
$(INSTALL) -m 755 ifup-dsl $(ROOT)/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts
$(INSTALL) -m 755 ifdown-dsl $(ROOT)/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts
$(INSTALL) -m 644 ifcfg-dsl0 $(ROOT)/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts


# DO NOT DELETE THIS LINE -- make depend depends on it.


If you need more infoermation please say so...

thanks

Did the driver come with a README or any other instructions? Typically, if you have a makefile, all you need to do in order to build the software is type "make", usually followed by "make install" (as root).

Also, it may help if you tell us what kind of modem you have

You can try "gmake" if the computer does not have "make". I do not know your distribution, but traditionally (less common these days), the gcc compiler used this instead of make (which was reserved for the true c-compiler.

It is also possible that you do not have gcc (the compiler) installed, or make installed. Again I know nothing of the JAMD distribution but a google search tells me it is an RPM based system. Often defaults do not install the so-called developer programs that allow compilation. What do you get if you type "rpm -q make" or "rpm -q gcc"?

Again, I do not know the JAMD distribution. Presumably on the CD you have, or on their download sites you can find the rpm's needed. They would be installed with rpm -Uvh <rpm name>. Hopefully if this does not work someone familiar with the distribution could help, or maybe there is some documentation on developer packages with the distribution, or perhaps on the JAMD homesite there are distribution specific forums. Good luck to you. I think you will like the power and freedom of Linux once you get more familiar with it. And the user community is unsurpassed by any.

THANKS MR FSBOOKS,

I appologise if you took offense to what i was telling in the general section... but only to you...

no too this freaky moderators of this board who don't allow a nice discussion...
and how do you think a FREE member can contact you if we can't PM you because we are not a paying member??


out of nice discussions there is much to learn...
nicest example is here mister FSBOOKS learned me what is wrong that he doesn't want to install the driver package on my 2 linux distro's....

another time thanks to mister or misses FSBOOKS!!!

I will let you know if i finally can install the thing

In synaptic go to Develpment Tools, click on the triangle and you will get a drop down menu, there should be a "Make" and a "distcc-compilers-redhat" file that you can download.

Reading this comment and your other thread, you come off as being combatant. Try being nice yourself and you will get more help.
Hope this helps.
