Lightbulb Installing internal modems in Knoppix


I Have a Conexant PCI HCF internal modem. I have the linux drivers. Don't know how to install it in Mandrake 9.1 . Got both the source file and rpm package of the drivers.




Also. I also have Knoppix which boots from the CD itself. How do I install the drivers in it. Help

these should drivers should come with some documentation inside the sorce file should be somthing like driver.tar.gz
in this case use the command tar xvzf driver.tar.gz and unoack it
then read the documents that come with it. its probably better that you use the source to install your drivers as it will buiild and compile your drivers to match your system if it says it is missing dependencies example: automake 1.6 then go to mandrake packaging and search for it there if its there it will ask for your mandrake cd's and install it for you if its not there copyt and paste what it says it needs and google it

For Mandrake, make sure you have the right RPM for Mandrake 9.1. Double click the RPM to install it or from the command line cd into the right directory and type

rpm -ivh whateverthefilenameis.rpm

After that you should be able to use kppp straight away and it will recognize your modem. If it doesn't you can configure with a prog call hcfpciconfig (I think that's the right name).

I've never used Knoppix but it should work something like this: copy the file .tar.gz file to a floppy and then to your HD once you have knoppix running. From there, cd to the directory with the source file in it, and from the command line type:

tar -xzf whateverthesourcefilenameis.tar.gz

(this extracts the files from the archive and puts them into a directory called hcfpcisomethingsomething)

cd into the directory created above

then run "make install" to install the driver, I think you will need to have the kernel sources installed this to work.

Finally configure your modem using hcfpciconfig and you should be ready to go.

For more info read the documentation at http://www.linuxant.com/

Thanks a lot for the reply.
I installed the drivers but got another problem.

I have CD 1 of Mandrake 9.1 and it doesn't have kppp.
I am not able to find it.

I believe that kppp is in a package called kde-network or something like that, if you search for it from the install programs dialog you'll find it.
