Discussion regarding the installation and configuration of Linux distributions.

Installation of Intel 536EP Modem on Fedora Core 5

Postby Muhammad Saad » Fri Feb 16, 2007 12:59 pm

Assalam-o-Alaikum!

I am using Fedora Core 5. The kernel version is 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5. I downloaded a driver (Uncompiled, version 4.71) for my Intel 536EP Modem from intel.com. As the driver needs the kernel source, therefore I also installed the package kernel-devel-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.i686.rpm that I downloaded from Fedora Core's web site. But when I tried to compile the driver, the result was as below:

[root@localhost saad]# cd ./Intel-536
[root@localhost Intel-536]# make clean
cd coredrv; make clean

I am downloading the complete kernel source from
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/f ... C5.src.rpm

Its size is about 46 MB. It will take a few days to download it completely.
I hope it works....

Just curios why you are downloading it. Don't you have kernel source in your installation CD's ?

Also what makes you think that by installing kernel-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.src.rpm will solve your problem ?

Fedora Core 5 CDs do not contain the kernel source. I need kernel source to install the driver.
Also look at the results in the beginning. This makes me think that installing the complete kernel source may solve my problem.

Wassalam!

Thanks for your help.
I followed the link you provided me and found a suitable driver. Although the link that you provided was a broken file, but I got another driver from the same directory and it worked.
Now I donot have to download the whole 46 MB just to install my modem. :)

Thank you for your kind help once again...
