SAGEM FAST 840 modem (eagle-usb ADSL modem)
« on: July 29, 2007, 11:53:06 am »
Hello
I have SAGEM FAST 840 eagle-usb modem
I tried to configure my internet connection.
I have downloaded the driver from http://www.sagem.com/support/site/driver/Fast8x0_3-0-6.tgz and followed the instructions http://www.sagem.com/support/site/livret/gu_Linux_en.pdf . When I tried to ./configure I have received the error message "KERNEL-SOURCES CANNOT BE FOUND".  But the directory /usr/src/ exists and within it ERNEL-SOURCE 2.6.18 as well (I have installed the optional package from the Vector 5.8 standard edition).

I have searched on the internet and downloaded the EAGLE-USB 2.3.3 TAR.BZ2 and the     eagle-usb-1.9.9.1.tar.bz2 from https://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=81588&package_id=83540 and tried to install these.  I still get the error message "KERNEL-SOURCES CANNOT BE FOUND". 

I have searched on the Internet for the error message itself and found this: http://forum.freespire.org/archive/index.php/t-3267.html with a freespire specific advice.  What do I have to do in Vector to get rid off this error message? What am I doing wrong that the ./configure and ./make scripts cannot find the kernel sources?  Are they somewhere else in Vector than they are in other distributions? Thanks.

Hmmm.. that is kind of weird. I'll try building the drivers here and see if I get the same problem.

There does indeed seem to be a problem with the sources. They are also pretty outdated, latest release was in 2005 and a lot has changed in the kernel since then.

I'm trying to adapt a Debian patch for this source and see if it will work. Will let you know as soon as I have something usable.
