    Conecting to the net using redhat?


    Hi all.

    I've bought a 'Red hat for dummies book' & have a phone-line BB connection.

    The book only gives intructions about connecting to cable internet or using a cisco modem

    Could anyone assist me in conecting to the net using a phone-line external modem?

    Many thanks

    ps: First ever Linux install was yesterday!

    Lo
    Yes we might help u. What is the model of ur modem first? It could be useful to know if some driver had been written for it under nux...
    Then to connect the modem to ur machine u use usb or ethernet?

    Cheers Gnux. The modem is a Sagem f@st 800 E3 & it's a usb connection.

    Well I've found & extracted the driver I need. In the readme.txt file, the installation instructions are:

    make clean
    make
    make install
    eagleconfig
    startadsl

    I typed the fist line in at "[centaur@localhost centaur]$" & got the message

    make: *** No rule to make target 'clean'. Stop.

    Any input sorely needed

    Thanks.

    Lo
    We have not read the same doc here is what i found about installation steps:
    Code:
    As usual for the tar.bz2 :
    ./configure
    make uninstall # if you've got an already installed version
    make clean # (optional) just in case you compiled before with another kernel
    make
    make install
    eagleconfig
    eaglectrl -w # to get the modem synchronized if eaglestat or eaglediag does not show it operationnal
    startadsl
    I read that here: http://dev.eagle-usb.org/wakka.php?wiki=EagleUsb230Fr this driver seems to be very well documented btw..u're lucky

    Thanks gnux.

    The ./configure gives a message:

    bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

    What am I doing wrong?

    Oki I tried and it works perfectly. So u d/l the driver in a tar.bz2 form. Unpack it and so on it gives:
    Code:
    tar -xvjf eagle-usb-2.3.2.tar.bz2
    cd eagle-usb-2.3.2
    U must cd into the directory and then do what is written upside, it should work.

    Sorry mate but that went right over my head

    Would you be able to dumb-it-down a bit?

    Cheers.
