speedtouch 330

Postby adm020 on Mon Apr 14, 2008 6:02 pm

Sorry, I'm a bit crap at all this. With a bit of patience I will be won over from XP

I have a dual boot system with Daryna and XP. I have downloaded the speedtouch drivers but am stuck where to go next. When I try to install it says I need to locate the libc6-dev or libc-devel or similar.

Help please,

Linux wannibe

Welcome.

Sorry to sound negative but speedtouch modems with any version of Linux are a pain. My solution to make life easier would be to purchase a modem router. My experience with Safecom routers has been good ( cheap on the net ) or I have just installed a Netgear 834G which works very well.

Code: Select all
sudo aptitude install libc6-dev

Should do the trick, but if the above poster is correct (I have no experience on this), this could just be the first step...

That has helped others with getting this modem to work...
