    Download binutils and glibc-devel as RPM files as well, and install those. I find the best way to install RPMs is to use rpm -ivh <filename> from a console. I still cannot understand why SuSE don't give people binutils and gcc with the system.
    Oh, and on a side note for this driver if you are using a 2.6.x kernel it must be greater than version 2.6.7 due to an incompatibility.

    These are the files I needed to d/l for SuSE 9.1:
    gcc-3.3.3
    glibc-devel-2.3.3
    kernel-default-2.6.8 (downloaded from the 9.2 archive).

    I think with SuSE 9.2 you should be ok with the default kernel.

    Hey guys, anyone know how to get this working on Smoothwall?

    When I try using ./configure I get an error message. I can't remember what it is at the moment, but it's something along the lines of
    './configure - no such file or directory'

    Please help!

    Also, rpm doesn't seem to be installed.

    If it says ./configure is not found it probably means that you're trying to compile in the wrong directory or that you've not untarred the source package.

    RPM is a package manager specific originally to RedHat (as in Redhat Package Manager) but is now also found in SuSE and some other distros.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    When I try changing directories from root using:

    cd /eciadsl-usergroup-0.9

    which is where my files are, it just keeps putting me back into the root folder.

    I'm a complete Linux noob, especially when it comes to the command line, so I'm probably doing something stupid. If you could tell me the correct commands for doing this, I would be very grateful. Thanks in advance

    Don't do / as / means the root directory, you either drop it or a . in front of it, like so:

    ./eciadsl-usergroup-0.9

    However, I would recommend against using this version as it is out date and may cause problems.
