hi there... installed mint 8 and love it ... m trying to setup a hybrid ( cdma+ evdo) connection using the "network connections" manager... iv been able to set it up under the "mobile broadband" heading but whenever i try to connect, it just doesnt connect....
the same thing is installed in windows xp on another lappy and coz i live in a remote area i need to pick cdma from the dropdown list manually ; the default being evdo... i dont know how to get the same option in linux...
im a recent convert and dont know much...sorry if im being longwinded.. please suggest a point and click method or a total idiots guide... thank you!
here are the 2 files included by the manufacturer
how to compile
1 Download and install kernel source code (if it is not in the released version);(e.g.: Install it at /opt/linux-2.6.18)
if it is the first time to install, you need:
make menuconfig //kernel configurations (generally use default configurations, exit and save)
make modules_prepare //prepare for making modules
2 Modify KERNELDIR=/opt/linux-2.6.18 in Makefile;
3 After make //, produce relevant kernel's drive file---ztemt.ko
For ARM CPU, compile instruction will be
make CC=arm-linux-gcc LD=arm-linux-ld TARGET=xscale-be-elf ARCH=arm V=1
4 ./load to load ztemt.ko to linux kernel;
1, Load driver-zte evdo
1),Copy ztemt.ko from release's relevant directory to certain directory (take /home/lm/ztemt for example);
e.g., you need install Fedora core 6:
cp release/Fedora/FC6/ztemt.ko /home/lm/ztemt/
2),cp us-test/wvdial-conf /etc/
4),Insert network card;
5),Run wvdial and to dial successfully (need root authorization). Normally, the following prompts will appear:
--> pid of pppd: 2450
--> Using interface ppp0
--> Authentication (CHAP) started
--> Authentication (CHAP) successful
--> local IP address 22.214.171.124
--> remote IP address 126.96.36.199
--> primary DNS address 188.8.131.52
--> secondary DNS address 184.108.40.206
--> Script /etc/ppp/ip-up run successful
--> Default route Ok.
--> Nameserver (DNS) Ok.
--> Connected... Press Ctrl-C to disconnect
1),require software support:
2),It might not be able to resolve domain name after running wvdial to dial successfully.
In this case, you need manually add primary DNS address and secondary DNS address to /etc/resolv.conf.
aint making much sense to me ...
