i need a lot of help on this one.ive just installed suse 9.1 ive never used it before so treat me like a 4 year old.my problem is ineed to install a driver for my sagem fast 800 usb modem i have found a posting from a thread which tells you how to do it but i dont uderstand it can somebody explain the following
Hi JeTa,

Congratulations with your working adsl modem!
I haven't succeded, trying for more than a week now.

My sagem 800 usb modem did't work with the eagle-usb drivers.
Maybe you can give me a "short' rapport of your 'struggle'
That would be nice eh?

Well anyway, is your problem fixed already?
If not read this, as i understand this maybe your problem, and try it out.
Specific the bottom lines.


To connect a Suse 9.1 (Kernel 2.6) machine via a Sagem Fast800? E2T to a UK-ADSL network with Tiscali as provider.

See the detailed instructions below.

Especially note steps 4 and 8 which were unexpected.


0. Install development packages (via Yast)
- kernel-sources
- gcc (C-Compiler)
- cpp
- libgcc (C-Bibliotheken)
- eazy (SUSE Compatibilty Links)
- lsb (Standard Base Tools)
- bison (C Parser Generator)
- libusb (USB-Bibliotheken)
- usbutils
- make
- ncurses
- ncurses - devel (kernel-menuconfig)


1. Start a root console

2. Preparing the kernel-sources: The sources must belong to the installed kernel.

cd /usr/src/linux
Save an old config if exists:

mv .config .config.old
Type "uname -r" to find out the version of the installed kernel and copy the respective file from "/boot/config*" to "/usr/src/linux/.config".

cp /boot/config-`uname -r` /usr/src/linux/.config
Run

make menuconfig
and exit with saving.

3. Prepare the eagle-usb-driver
Download: eagle-usb-1.9.8.tar.bz2 from SourceForge download area (you may take latest version and adapt)
Unpack it somewhere: e.g. into /opt

cd /opt
tar xvfj eagle-usb-1.9.8.tar.bz2
cd /opt/eagle-usb-1.9.8
If no configure-file exists run

./autogen.sh
Then a configure-file should exist. Run

./configure --prefix=/usr

4. Normally you would proceed with "make" etc. but I had the problem that after completing the installation my modem seemed to be too new:
The modem wouldn't become operational, after waiting and when typing "eaglectrl -p" something like this would appear:

Post-firmware device on USB bus 4 (type=POTS)

The solution for this was to use the original *.bnm-files from the Tiscali-Windows-Installation-CD instead of the *.bnm-files in the eagle-usb-1.9.8-package:
The directory /media/cdrecorder/ASSETS/Sagem/L1/IDMA contains the files:
RTBLDEP0.BNM, RTBLDEP1.BNM, RTBLDEP2.BNM, RTBLDEP3.BNM, RTBLDEP4.BNM

Copy them to /opt/eagle-usb-1.9.8/driver/firmware/sagem/pots and /opt/eagle-usb-1.9.8/driver/firmware/usr/pots and also rename them from uppercase to lowercase letters e.g.:

cp /media/cdrecorder/ASSETS/Sagem/L1/IDMA/RTBLDEP0.BNM /opt/eagle-usb-1.9.8/driver/firmware/sagem/pots/rtbldep0.bnm
etc. (for files 0...4)

Note you may use this alternate method :
dowload latest windows drivers from sagem click here

cd /opt/eagle-usb-1.9.8/
unzip $(DIR_DL)/eagle-w.2.0.31_fr.zip # where DIR_DL is the directory where you downloaded
cp W.2.0.31_fr/L1/IDMA/rtbldep*.bnm driver/firmware/sagem/pots
cp W.2.0.31_fr/L1/IDMA/rtbldei*.bnm driver/firmware/sagem/isdn

Those .bnm work with E2L modem and work with Fast 800 WA (wanadoo origin) and Fast 908
I don't know the difference from E2T to E2L but I suspect T mind Tiscaly, for L, I don't know.

Do you know if those bnm work with E2T modems?

5. Now it's finally time for make:

make
make install

6. Configuring the ADSL-connection:

eagleconfig
Some questions about country, username, password and when to launch the ADSL-connection will be asked now.

When everything works then text similar to this will appear:

Loading DSP & options... [ OK ]
Waiting for modem to be operational... [ OK ]
Configuration successful.
You can now type "startadsl" to launch the connection.

7. Now run "startadsl" and try to access the internet via konqueror or similar.
------------------------------------------------------------HERE-------------------------------------
8. After restarting the computer neither eagleconfig nor startdsl worked anymore. The problem seemed to be that the DSP-code wasn't reinitialised.
My solution was to change line 59 in /usr/sbin/eagleconfig to

SEND_DSP_NEEDED=1
which forces the DSP-reinitialisation with every launch of eagleconfig.
Then "startadsl" works again.

9. The connection can finally be terminated with "stopadsl".


i know how to install the development packages in yast but were do i start a root console and all the rest sorry for being thick.darren
