Insmod command not found after installing pctel-0.9.6 under rh8


I recently installed rh 8 over 9 because I couldn't get my pctel driver to work for my soft modem. I had seen people that had 8 and it worked, and after saving all my files under my xp partition, I installed 8.

However, I ran into the same problem as last time. Here's what i got, just scroll to the bottom where the error is:

Hi.

Try (re)-installing the 'modutils' rpm from your red-hat discs. That should give you back insmod.

well for some reason I can't use insmod unless I have actually logged into root, not my normal account, opened a terminal, and then su-ing. So in root I tried what i was supposed to and got this:

Hi again.

Only being able to do insmod as root is normal.
As for the errors, you seem to have compiled the pctel modules using:

[root@localhost pctel-0.9.6]# ./configure --with-hal=pct789 --with-kernel-includes=/usr/src/linux-2.4.18-14/include

which compiles against the 2.4.18 kernel. You are using the 2.4.20 kernel, which will give the unresolved symbols. I don't know the details of the configure script (and I'm not an expert anyway) but I would imagine you would just have to change the -with-kernel-includes location when you do ./configure to point to the correct kernel sources.

Oh yeah, and make sure you've got your kernel source RPM installed from the RH8 CD.

I had not been able to figure out the insmod thing and had seen others that got their pctel modem up and running with rh8, so I figure, what the heck, I'll just use my friend's 8. (I'm sick of using windows to do all my internet connecting and stuff). After finding I could use insmod in root, I updated rh9 over 8. I have been having a few probs that I didn't have before when I had put only 9 on, and so I think I'll just start fresh again with rh9 and my 2.4.20-8. I'll see how it goes then. If I get the right output about it telling me about my modem, will the network connection wizard find my modem and will it find it each time I start up my computer? If it won't, is there any way I can fix this and make the modem get recognized on startup? I read in another modem driver I've been working with [to no avail] that I have to insmod each time I boot up.

Thanks for all the help, I have been repeatedly posting my modem thread every other weak to no avail, and now I'm getting somewhere!

I feel I'm slowly loosing my status...

You might want to add line to do the insmod for your modem into /etc/rc.d/rc.local - that way it will be added when you boot.

That should sort it. Hit me back if you get any more trouble.
