    Yeah....two dashes might be right....its been that long since I've used an rpm system I've forgotten most of the rpm commands, still it's not working with either. I wanted to see a ls -al screenie to compare file size, permissions etc with the copy I downloaded. If you like I can email it to you, yours might be corrupted in some way.

    well yeah we could give that a go but the file sizes are the same so.... I'll PM you anyways.

    I noticed the permissions are different, could that cause the problems ? If so, what should they be and how can I change them ??

    Are there other ways to do this or is it just to painful and not worth it ?
    WooHoo !! I at long last have a job ! Yay for me !

    I've emailed it...it might be a bit big for yahoo, if they bounce it I'll let you know.....as for your last question.....It might be worth looking into a real modem.....getting a usb modem working is as hard as a winmodem, mostly because they are winmodems.

    Well I'm not sure what exactly happened but goods things occured !!

    I got a new hard drive so I re-installed linux. Once done I thought I'd try rebuilding that src rpm again. This time it actually found the file and attemped to compile it ! Hoorah !!! What changed ? I have no idea ! But it decided to stop pissing me off and work, kinda.

    While that's all good, it did actually run into yet another problem. I might be up **** creek in a barbed wire canoe but we'll see. As it was compiling it bombed out 'cas it couldn't find "modversions.h". I'm not sure if this header file is pretty common with linux apps and therefore no big problem or if it is indeed unique to the drivers from SmartLink. :?:

    Anyways here's a screendump, can you see anything obvious ????

    Thanks heaps !!


    :bounce: <-- I've got no idea what the hell this thing is but it looks kinda funky !

    Its complaining about a missing kernel header, did you install all the kernel src and kernel dev rpm's?

    Yep pretty sure I did ! I selected the kernel developement option during the install so unless there is something else ?? Could it be for a different version or something ?

    Have a look in /usr/src/linux/include/linux for the missing file. You might need to search the cd's for a kernel headers rpm.

    Hoorah !!! At long last I've managed to compile that freakin' source code !!!

    I had a look and found that I did have that header file but the directory wasn't "linux" it was "linux 2.x" (can't remember exactly what it was but it was a number). After messing around with shortcuts so it appeared as just "linux" it compiled for me ! Yay ! Now for some happy similes --> :thumb: :D :) :cheers: Ok that'll do...

    So, thinking things were going along just fine I tried to install them but got an error about unresolved symbols. Ummm, what ??? :?:

    Do you know what this is and how to overcome it ??


    Thanks.

    Unresolved symbols....do "depmod -ae" as root and see if that helps. With the /usr/src/linux-version number thing, what I do is have a sym link from /usr/src/linux to /use/src/linux-version, rename your kernel src directory to /linux-version and then do (as root) "ln -s /usr/src/linux-version /usr/src/linux" that way you can download a new kernel, extract it to /usr/src/linux-new-version and then do "rm /usr/src/linux" to remove the old link and then do the "ln -s...etc" using /linux/new-version. What this does is point any program you're trying to compile that needs kernel headers/includes to the current kernel version you have running via the sym link.

    [edit] I goofed up :)
