Talking Help me convert fully to slackware ;-)

Hi all slackers ,

I have been using slack for 3-4 months now.. but only for learning purposes.. trying out new s/w and playing around with things here and there...

But, now I want to convert to slackware fully...

Heres what I've done so far..

- Installed slackware 9.1 (penta-boot system with Win98 + WinXP + PCQLinux2004 + HD-install of Knoppix-STD + Slackware 9.1)

- Updated to Kernel 2.6.6
- Updated to KDE 3.2
- Updated to Dropline Gnome 2.6.0
- Updated to Xserver 4.4.0
- Update my NVIDIA drivers (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-5336)

- Installed all alternative softwares that I used on windows (Photoshop, Dreamweaver, a/v utilities, etc)


Now the part where I need some help

Hardware configuration and things went alright..

But my CDMA phone (LG RD 2030) ain't working, I use this for internet access most of the times...

Its connected to PC via USB Data cable

The LG phones act as serial modems. The USB cable provided with these phones is a FTDI SIO single port USB to serial converter device.

But, its not getting detected during boot-up..

Altho I've loaded the module ftdi_sio and usbserial both (I have selected these when configuring the new kernel.. they are built-in)

On my PCQLinux (FEDORA CORE 1 based distro) "/var/log/syslog" looks like

May 22 07:52:10 pcq kernel: usb.c: registered new driver serial
May 22 07:52:10 pcq kernel: usbserial.c: USB Serial support registered for Generic
May 22 07:52:10 pcq kernel: usbserial.c: USB Serial Driver core v1.4
May 22 07:52:10 pcq kernel: usbserial.c: USB Serial support registered for FTDI SIO
May 22 07:52:10 pcq kernel: usbserial.c: USB Serial support registered for FTDI 8U232AM
May 22 07:52:10 pcq kernel: usbserial.c: FTDI 8U232AM converter detected
May 22 07:52:10 pcq kernel: usbserial.c: FTDI 8U232AM converter now attached to ttyUSB0 (or usb/tts/0 for devfs)
May 22 07:52:10 pcq kernel: ftdi_sio.c: v1.2.0:USB FTDI RS232 Converters Driver
But there is not /dev/ttyUSB0 or /dev/tts/0 on my slack

I booted SLAX it detected the device (/dev/tts/0) and I was able to successfully configure it and was able to connect to the net.


So my questions:

- What should I do so that it gets detected
- There is no /dev/tts/0 on my system not even /dev/ttyUSB0 or anything similar to those, now what?


Thats it for now

Help me convert.. I'll be asking more nagging questions once this problem is solved

Take a look here: Serial HOWTO: Serial Port Devices /dev/tts/2 = /dev/ttyS2, etc.
