Hi guys,

thanks for all the feedback. Here is some reaction to your suggestions
(it is rather long, but I thought the least I can do is to give some
response to your efforts):

Duncan> actually it seems to have gone fine (the firmware downloading)

Does this mean that the errors/warnings can be ignored?

Is there a possibility to solve these warnings?

I started the thread when using test3, but in the mean time I had
downloaded and installed the final version of FC2. In my mail of Sunday
23 May 2004 I was referring to problems with the "final" install.

I didn't make/install pppd, linux-atm and kernel-module, because I
thought that they might conflict with kernel-2.6. When configuring the
kernel I selected atm, ppp over atm and the speedtouch kernel driver, so
I thought that I didn't need these speedbundle parts.

Duncan> You need a pppoa aware pppd.  The speedbundle contains one.

Frédéric> Like duncan said earlier, you need a pppoa aware pppd

OK, I will try to compile and use the version contained in speedbundle.
But how are the linux-atm and pppd "packages" in speedbundle related to
the stuff I activated in the kernel configuration? Are they a different
way to obtain the same functionality?

Frédéric> To work this around, you should (re)move all atm*.h file

Hmmm, good that you mention this. I did not read about this problem

William> run ./configure from the root of the speedbundle directory.
William> It will tell you what values you need to fill in the
William> ppp_scripts and if you need the firmware file (you do have the
William> firmware file, right?)

I have the firmware file, and I made all the required changes in the
ppp_scripts files.

William> There is a bug in the ppp_scripts, you need to edit speedtch
William> and replace the 0.00 with your VPI and VCI numbers for your
William> service.

Sure, I did that.

William> I think that you need the kernel-source package installed, but
William> I'm not certain.

It's installed.

William> Then try to make.  If you get an error on the make, do a make
William> clean, re-./configure.  You will most likely fail on the
William> linux-atm or ppp.  If that's the case, you don't really need

William> Fedora-like kernel and a std-Linux-like kernel).

I will first try with ppp only, and if that does not work also with
linux-atm. I do not understand the part on standard-Linux kernel versus
the Fedora kernel: could you explain what is the problem here? Is it the
same issue (wrong header files) that Frédéric mentioned?

As you see, I have some tests at hand ;-) I will keep you posted.
