install modem red hat linux 8

Postby mohdali2 » Sat Jan 04, 2003 11:34 am

I am using motorola pci modem and want to setup it with

redhat linux 8. I got the driver for linux from motorola website

the website clearly states that the modem driver is tested

with redhat linux 7.1. I try it with redhat linux 7.1 and its working fine

but with redhat linux 8 it could not configure.

If anyone knows please guide me.

compile the kernel of redhat 7.1 on your redhat 8.
and then try that rpm.
and you should also try the source package from www.mbsi.ca/cnxtlindrv
but for it you need to install your kernel source.

i have also no good experience in linux.
install the rpm having name "kernel-source.??????.rpm"
which maybe in cd # 2 of redhat 7.1 cd set.
now in your "/usr/src" there will be the source of kernel in the directory having name "linux-2.4.???"
i can tell you how to compile the kernel but some great people have written something which is 1000 times better than my knowledge.
read that in detail. you will be experienced in linux.

its more complicated then that. In redhat 8.0 they moved to gcc 2.96 which uses the new coding standard, or more correctly - _enforces_ the alreayd existing C++ coding standrad, so if the code didn't follow the standard (which ALOT of code didn't) then it will not compile on 8.0, but will compile just fine on previous versions)

this is not really the C++ stanrdards peoples fault as they said it was the standard, its just older gcc's didn't enforce it and people fell into some bad habits.
