My Alcatel USB modem appears under the USB viewer - but when I try and config for the internet using my account info - non of the device options seem to work - HELP!.

Any suggestions would be of great help.

New to Linux - so be gentle!

I'm sorry, but that modem requires a kernel recompile, which rules out knoppix. There is a Alcatel USB linux howto that you can search for, but because knoppix is read-only you cannot use it. I guess this isn't the best introduction to linux, and hardware support is a tricky area. Alcatel does provide linux drivers, but they are not Open Source so cannot be included in the linux kernel.

The Alcatel USB Speedtouch ADSL modem works perfectly well under Knoppix. No kernel recompile required. It does need you to get your hands a bit dirty though - no easy GUI based install that I know of.

Just follow the instructions at http://speedtouch.sourceforge.net

Briefly, you need:

to get the mgmt.o binary file which will be downloaded to the modem
to compile a small software package from the above site
to change/create some files under /etc/ppp
to add a few lines to /etc/modules.conf

Takes a few minutes the first time, but once it is done you can put the new files into an archive and create a small script to automate the process, store it all on a floppy or USB memory. Once you have done this you can have ADSL up and running in about 15 seconds after booting Knoppix.

I am very sorry for giving false information, i guess things have changed since I last used that modem with linux.

Hi
I read about the touch speed modem, which is what I have, but I have been unalble to download the required parts.
Also have had problems setting up the file and understanding the instructions. I must just be a little thick.

If it is possible to run this from a floppy, would it not be possible to upload this file, for other people to download. Even if they have to make adjustments, it is easier to start from some thing rather then from scratch.

the only file I managed to down load is kqd6-r204 and I think I need another file which I have been unable to find. I would really like to try linux via the usb modem, so will keep trying.
One last thing, I take it that this does not effect the modem when running in windows.

Kind regards
Herc

Found this at our French collegues site www.knoppixfr.org

(that's the advantage of speaking 4 languages 8) )

Just change your specific settings and do some copy/paste :lol:

change the path where resides mgmt.o in the script.

Me think this should be integrated by Klaus :wink:

I'm totally new to linux and knoppix is my first try of this OS.

Isn't there an easy way around this? I used DOS alot back in the days, but for such a long list of commands we could always use a .bat file, is there an equivalent in linux that will automate this dreaded task? I've gotten used to copy and paste and PnP drivers, I'm lazy thanx to bill.

The great advantage of knoppix resides in the automation of this all hardware detection stuff, and running from cd on-the-fly without disturbing that windows BSOD goblin that resides on your HD. That said there should be autodetection of very common hardware like Alcatel's/Thomson's ADSL modems. (don't get me wrong I prefer modems that connect via ethernet).

The above is a shell script you would simply cut'n'paste to an editor save the file then make it executable and run the file in a console window.

that script didnt work.
http://david.abdelli.free.fr/speedtouch/en/index.html
i tried those instructions with the hd-install not the live cd.
didnt work this is either due to the fact that the usb didnt work cos usbview didnt see my modem or due to the fact that bt uses pap instead of chap cos the files have to be edited differently and i dunno how.

How to avoid the Read-only file system error ????

Satrapo, I'm very much a newbie to this so I could be very wrong. I am trying to get my Alcatel SpeedTouch USB ADSL modem to work with the Knoppix Live CD and am having problems similar to yours. One of the problems in my case is that the CD, and I think linux itself, cannot write to an NTFS partition very well. So in other words, creating a home directory, reading/writing from your HD, saving knoppix config settings, etc. won't work. I'm researching alternatives. Perhaps loading stuff from the floppy drive will work. Who knows? Good luck. If I find something that works, I'll post it. :)

I'm new to Linux (Knoppix Live CD) like some of you and was having great difficulty :evil: in getting my speedtouch to work.

I followed the instructions on http://david.abdelli.free.fr/speedtouch/en/index.html as indicated earlier in the thread without success. Having looked a little closer at my modem settings in (excuse my langauge) windows - I noticed the vpi and vci numbers were different than those in the speedtouch.sh so I edited them to what my wi*d*ws modem was showing - (0 & 38 respectively), resaved the file and - Bobs yer Frog - its up an running.... :P

I'm in the UK on pipex ADSL, I think these vpi & vci settings are for UK not just pipex but not sure.

If anyone wants it I can post up the modded speedtouch.sh on my website.

PS if you do edit it use KEDIT and don't do it through wordpad in windows like I did first time :oops: It dont work......

01-28-2004, 08:31 PM
Wow. I think I could actually do this. Can you put the files those instructions refer to onto a floppy and load them from there? I have Win2K and I'm running into that problem where you can't make a Knoppix Home directory on the hard drive because Knoppix (for now) cannot write to NTFS partitions. So I think I'll have to figure out something else.

Thanks for the info!

I've also had a hard time making this USB modem to work, but after a frustrating week I finally found a script that did the job!

1) Make sure you are root. Do 'modprobe -r speedtch', I don't know if this is necessary, but I did this first

2) download the mgmt.o file here:
http://home.planet.nl/~andje000/mgmt.o

3) download the script here:
http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=68502

4) unpack the script with tar

5) put mgmt.o inside the directory that is created by the previous step

6) cd to that directory and execute the script

7) answer a few questions that the script is asking you, don't be affraid these are very easy questions like your username and password...

If everything goes well, you should be online now, but sometimes the script is complaining about the wrong pppd version. The script is comparing the version of your pppd with the version numbers inside the script, so to make it work, you just have to change the version numbers inside the script.

I don't know if this will work when you boot Knoppix from CD, because a few files will be written to /etc.

Hope this helps

You could whilst in W2K; create a Knoppix directory and save the three files into it:
mgmt.o
speedtouch-1.2-beta3.tar.gz
speedtouch.sh

Boot into Knoppix - mine normaly starts the web browser, can't remember what its called sorry.
Click the home button on the brower and it takes you to something like knoppix/home.
Click on hard drive icon that contains the knoppix directory and navigate down untill you see the 3 files it contains
Copy them to your Knoppix home directory in the browser window
Once copied give a right click and selct open terminal here
Type the following
su
sh speedtouch.sh

The script will then start, it will ask 2 questions in French, the first is your ISP login name and the second is your ISP password. Then away it goes and in under a minute you are connected.

As I said before you need to edit the VPI & VCI numbers to suit as I did.

Let me know how you go on..

B.A.

I got much farther this time. I hacked around, tweaking the shell script, and got it to a point when it actually had to write something to the hard drive. Unfortunately, since I have NTFS, that's where I am presently stuck. If I can find the time, I will see what I can do about that, but more likely, I will wait for the new version of Knoppix to come out. I've heard it has NTFS-write support. If the Alcatel USB drivers aren't updated in that release, then I will retry this fix.

i never had problems getting the modem running in KNOPPIX 3.2 hd-installations.

knoppix 3.3 seemed impossible to me.

also with 3.4 i fooook yround and nothing positive happens.

i bet with the kernel 2.6 it runs, but i cannot get kernel 2.6 running from hd...

To use Benoit Papillault's drivers with Knoppix 3.3 (and maybe 3.4) you need to remove the speedtch module first (modprobe -r speedtch)
I wrote a small script to make it easier (it works from the CD or from the HD intallation). The script is there :
http://christophe.delord.free.fr/en/adsl/debian.html
Please change the VPI and VCI variables at the beginning of the script. The default values may be valid only for France.

For Knoppix 3.4 ct edition, you must use this script to install it with kernel 2.6
Download it and run it with these lines


wget ftp://ftp.heise.de/pub/ct/projekte/knoppix/knoppix-inst.sh
chmod a+x knoppix-inst.sh
sudo ./knoppix-inst.sh

I'm new to Linux (Knoppix Live CD) like some of you and was having great difficulty :evil: in getting my speedtouch to work.

I followed the instructions on http://david.abdelli.free.fr/speedtouch/en/index.html as indicated earlier in the thread without success. Having looked a little closer at my modem settings in (excuse my langauge) windows - I noticed the vpi and vci numbers were different than those in the speedtouch.sh so I edited them to what my wi*d*ws modem was showing - (0 & 38 respectively), resaved the file and - Bobs yer Frog - its up an running.... :P

I'm in the UK on pipex ADSL, I think these vpi & vci settings are for UK not just pipex but not sure.

If anyone wants it I can post up the modded speedtouch.sh on my website.

PS if you do edit it use KEDIT and don't do it through wordpad in windows like I did first time :oops: It dont work......

hello, i am on pipex as well and have had no luck getting speedtouch usb modem to work in knoppix 3.4, i would appreciate if you could post a link to your modded speedtouch.sh on your website please

thanks
