Thread: no modem in Redhat Linux 8??

  1. #101

    Re:no modem in Redhat Linux 8??

    I'd say stick with Red Hat. Is as easy as it is going to get.

    SUSE is said to be quite good. However, SUSE is not free.

    Debian is said to be quite stable but, to many people, obsolete.

    If you just want to learn linux without installing, you might want to try Knoppix.

    Well trickster. su and then ./Ismod was no such directory. This is what i tryed.

    I don't know what that means or what folder it is in. Please reply back. Thanks.

    It means it cannot find it. As a last resource, I'd open KDE or Gnome, and on the kmenu, go to Find Files. look for lsmod. If you can't find it, I'd say reinstall again, and just do a FULL installation.

    lsmod is in /sbin for redhat.

    I reviewed this thread and the thing that strikes me is that your system seems to behave very strange. And from your posts it's hard to say whether that's simply because the system is screwed up or because you don't understand what people ask you to do.

    There are so many problems unsolved that I'm incliened to suggest a clean re-install. Another possibility: Would you be opposed to giving someone ssh access to your machine? I'd be willing to log on and check if everythings working as it should and you will just have to trust me that I don't temper with your system or install backdoors If you've got AIM running message me @ demian31415 or mail me. I'll be here another hour or so.

    Well, I had a brain fart there. You don't have Linux online. So I guess ssh is not an option.

    yes demian you could access my computer. I do use AIM but it's not on my system so i'm downloading it now.

    As Demian said, he can't connect to your machine, because your machine can't connect to the net.

    And as he stated on the other post, my suggestion is that you take it easy and don't run before walking. If you can't get your system off the ground, don't try taking on other more complicated softwares.

    I have never installed Solaris. As far as I know, it uses a whole different "partitioning" schema. Last I read, on the thread you started on Solaris, Frisco suggested you do a search on Google for "Solaris x86 installation FAQ", and you never answered. Again, I'd say stick to one thing or you are going to get confused.

    I am going to start a new thread for helping you with the modem problem. I'm going to start by making sure you do a FULL installation.

    Please post the way you want your partitions to end, and I will help you.

    Great, you found it!

    Now, try doing /sbin/modprobe vfat, and then do the lsmod. I want to make sure your driver for your fat32 partition is loading.
