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 RUAUDEL Frédéric wrote: >Hi all, > >William M.

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 > >Liste de diffusion modem ALCATEL SpeedTouch USB >Pour se désinscrire : mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] > > > > > Liste de diffusion modem ALCATEL SpeedTouch USB Pour se désinscrire : mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED]
