I just got an PTCL Evdo device and I setup it on FC-13 x64

First thanks to Adnan for PTCL EVDO on Linux on the following URL :

Fedora comes with an older version usb mode switch.
- usb_modeswitch-1.0.5-1.fc12.x86_64

First download the following rpms before switching to fedora linux.
- usb_modeswitch-data-20100707-1.fc13.noarch.rpm
- usb_modeswitch-1.1.3-1.fc13.x86_64.rpm

Now start fedora , uninstall the old version usb_modeswitch then install the new rpms.

--- UnInstall Old usb_modeswitch rpm ---

Code: Select all

[root@mySystem Fedora-13]# rpm -e usb_modeswitch-1.0.5-1.fc12.x86_64

--- Install New/Updated RPM ---

Code: Select all

[root@mySystem Fedora-13]# rpm -i usb_modeswitch-data-20100707-1.fc13.noarch.rpm usb_modeswitch-1.1.3-1.fc13.x86_64.rpm
warning: usb_modeswitch-data-20100707-1.fc13.noarch.rpm: Header V3 RSA/SHA256 Signature, key ID e8e40fde: NOKEY

--- Plug the evo device in usb ---
