[speedtouch] Re: Fedora Core 2 Test 3 Issues (2.6.5 kernel) =G

2004-05-25 Thread RUAUDEL Frédéric

Hi all,

My adsl connexion on my brand new FC2 installation comes back this 
morning, thanks to all of you on this list !

So, for all the guys that didn't manage to connect yet, here are some 
RPM I made to make speedtouch green manta modem works (and maybe others) 
on your FC2

http://grumz.dyndns.org/ADSL_FC2/

maybe somebody can mirror this link on a server with a larger bandwidth 
than my adsl connexion, in order more people can access it.

For the solution, I recompile the kernel of redhat with the patches 
duncan gave us 2 days ago + all the missing config options (ATM, pppoa, 
speedtouch), I compile linux-atm, pppd with the pppoa patch find on 
http://www.linux-usb.org/SpeedTouch and modem_run of Benoit papillault 
(speedtouch-1.2 package).

After you install the above packages, you need to configure you 
pap/chap-secret files and put your username and vci.vpi in the 
/etc/ppp/peers/speedtch file installed by the speedtouch package. and 
then you plug your modem and start your connection with :

service adsl start

you can add in your crontab a script to check your connection :

*/5 * * * * root /usr/sbin/check_adsl.sh

And that's all folks !

Thanks again for your help and I hope my contribution will help !

Best regards,

Fred

Then try to make.  If you get an error on the make, do a make clean, 
re-./configure.  You will most likely fail on the linux-atm or ppp.  If 
that's the case, you don't really need linux-atm (someone correct me if 
I'm wrong; if I'm right, i would suggest leaving it out anyways, I think 
this unnecessarily writes over stuff in your existing kernel), 




Like duncan said earlier, you need a pppoa aware pppd daemon. In order 
to have this, you need to compile linux-atm and pppd present in the 
speedbundle package.

But, you are right, It won't compile with the default FC2 install. It 
will complain about a function called billi_in_use or something like 
that. It's because the include files of the kernel present in 
/usr/include/linux are too old (They should come from the kernel 
installed when the fedora folks compiled all the system, which is the 
behavior that linus torvalds advices). To work this around, you should 
(re)move all atm*.h file in /usr/include/linux and replace them with 
those present in the 2.6.5 kernel sources.
After that, all works for me except that modem_run failed at the end of 
its initialization because of the bug in the kernel.
With the kernel patches given by duncan, I think it should allow us to 
use the kernel driver with FC2.

Best regards,

Fred
