Question about Computers & Internet
I found some instructions here:
...but I'm a Linux n00b and there seem to be some missing steps. I need someone who understands Linux to help me get the steps in the right order so I can use my existing Sprint service and device with my new netbook.
The netbook is running Linpus linux version 126.96.36.199lw (based on Fedora core)
I did get my 595u to connect but need to solve some more problems.
First setup the right click menu as described in http://www.reghardware.co.uk/2008/09/05/ten_aspire_one_tips/
Then update software with software updater.
I installed an update to hal-info that may be needed. Search for hal-info and fc8and download the latest (or later than 200803) rpm. Usually select the title in rpmfind to download the rpm. Save it to Documents. Next open a terminal with the right click menu.
Change to the Documents directory 'cd Documents' ( hint type "cd Do<TAB><ENTER>')
List files - 'ls'
Should see the hal-info....rpm file
change to root
-- enter setup password --
Install the rpm with
'rpm -Uvh hal*rpm'
Should see success.
Next Right click -> System -> Add/Remove Software
Check Development ->Development Tools
May need to uninstall gettext (to replace lw version with fc8 version) with
rpm -e gettext
Then go to http://www.sierrawireless.com/faq/ShowFAQ.aspx?ID=1235 and download and download source code. Here is where I had trouble . Linpus did not include headers or module Make files. Another kernel fc8 tree was available. I booted into the fc kernel by editing /boot/grub/grub.conf and setting default=0. This break file manager. I will try to obtain linpus kernel build info and try again.

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.
