    Problem installing modem drivers


    Hi, I sourced the correct drivers for my modem but I'm having trouble installing them. I posted this a while back but I think it got lost in the melee as there was another question in my post which was successfully answered.

    I've copied the text from my Terminal Window for you to look at to see if you can see what I'm doing wrong.

    The first bit of text is the instructions that came with the driver... the next part is what I tried to type in to the terminal window...

    Code:
    All you have to do is to run make then make install.
    After edit /etc/ppp/peers/adsl file to change user name, vpi and vci 
    according to your provider and account.
    Then just add a line like 'yourusername * yourpass *' in the /etc/ppp/chap-secrets file (keep all starts).
    thats all
    you can use startmodem script to start the modem.
    
    [root@localhost eciadsl-usermode_0.5]# make
    cc -Wall -g   -c -o eci-load1.o eci-load1.c
    make: cc: Command not found
    make: *** [eci-load1.o] Error 127
    [root@localhost eciadsl-usermode_0.5]# make install
    cc -Wall -g   -c -o eci-load1.o eci-load1.c
    make: cc: Command not found
    make: *** [eci-load1.o] Error 127
    [root@localhost eciadsl-usermode_0.5]# dir

    CVS               eci-doctor.sh          eci_vendor_device.pl      Makefile          pusb-linux.c
    [root@localhost eciadsl-usermode_0.5]# make Makefile
    make: Nothing to be done for `Makefile'.
    [root@localhost eciadsl-usermode_0.5]#
    I'm a complete Linux Newbie as you can probably tell. Any ideas?

    hi,
    cc is the old c/c++ compiler, try gcc instad of cc (I think, I don't have much experience in this area).

    Thanks for the help mate. The instructions did say about g++ but when I tried to find g++ in my Linux installation it says it can't be found. Is g++ something that has to be installed separately? If so, does anyone know where I can find it? .. And while we're on the subject, what exactly IS g++ ??

    you can find g++ in the gcc package which can be found at http://gcc.gnu.org

    i think you have to install it separately cuz im having the same problem lol

    i've had a similar problem before
    this should help you may need to run it as root

    Code:
    cd /usr/bin
    ln -s gcc cc
    this will make a cc file that will run gcc
