Thread: To: Slave Copy

  1. #21

    Re:To: Slave Copy

    What they are showing you is the autocomplete option. If you type 'una' and then press enter, it will finish the command for you by displaying 'uname'. This is extremely helpful when changing directories. Let's say you are going into your home directory from '/'.

    dsanta# cd /ho<tab>
    dsanta# cd /home

    By pressing the tab button it finishes the word 'home' for you.

    dsanta#cd /home/d<tab>
    dsanta#cd /home/dsanta

    Just makes it eaiser than to type out the whole thing. Sometimes you will have more than one choice to finish the word. Since 'autolist' is set by default in RedHat, you can press tab twice to get a list of possibilities. For instance:

    dsanta# cd /usr/l<tab>

    As you see, the <tab> didn't finish anything. Press <tab> again and it will show like this:

    Code:
    dsanta# cd /usr/l
    lib       libexec      local
    dsanta# cd /usr/l
    If you put an 'o' after the "cd /usr/l" and press <tab> it will compete it as "/usr/local". If you type 'i' after "cd /usr/l" it won't finish since there are still 2 possibilities. Hope that helps.

    Thanks Master Copy.

    I got the pctel command to work but now the insmod commands are not working. Here is my output.

    [dsanta@localhost dsanta]$ su
    Password:
    [root@localhost dsanta]# mount -t umsdos /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
    mount: /dev/fd0 already mounted or /mnt/floppy busy
    mount: according to mtab, /dev/fd0 is already mounted on /mnt/floppy
    [root@localhost dsanta]# cd /mnt/floppy
    [root@localhost floppy]# rpm -ivh pctel-0.9.6-pct789_rh9.i386.rpm
    Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
    package pctel-0.9.6-pct789_rh9 is already installed
    [root@localhost floppy]# /sbin/insmod -f pctel
    insmod: pctel: no module by that name found
    [root@localhost floppy]# ls

    Hi Derek,

    I'd say you know how to do it, so try to do it. If you get a problem, post the problem.

    Re:To: Slave Copy

    trickster, Did you at least read my output?? The insmod commands there was no module or something like that so the commands did not load. No i don't know how to make them load.

    I got the pctel command to work but now the insmod commands are not working. Here is my output.

    [dsanta@localhost dsanta]$ su
    Password:
    [root@localhost dsanta]# mount -t umsdos /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
    mount: /dev/fd0 already mounted or /mnt/floppy busy
    mount: according to mtab, /dev/fd0 is already mounted on /mnt/floppy
    [root@localhost dsanta]# cd /mnt/floppy
    [root@localhost floppy]# rpm -ivh pctel-0.9.6-pct789_rh9.i386.rpm
    Preparing... ########################################### [100%]
    package pctel-0.9.6-pct789_rh9 is already installed
    [root@localhost floppy]# /sbin/insmod -f pctel
    insmod: pctel: no module by that name found
    [root@localhost floppy]# ls

    Re:To: Slave Copy

    Just to begin;

    Why do you keep installing the rpm if you already have it installed?

    This is what I'd do if I were you: remove the rpm and then reinstall it.

    to remove the rpm, do rpm -e pctel-0.9.6-pct789_rh9.i386.rpm

    then reinstall it again in the usual way and try the insmod.

    If that does not work, I'd say try compiling it from source. I posted detailed instructions (the same you get from the pctel driver website) on the original no modem thread.

    Number 1 that command did not work and it also lied it said it was not installed. I will post my output below.

    [dsanta@localhost dsanta]$ su
    Password:
    [root@localhost dsanta]# rpm -e pctel-0.9.6-pct789_rh9.i386.rpm
    error: package pctel-0.9.6-pct789_rh9.i386.rpm is not installed
    [root@localhost dsanta]#

    Second. Yes that was the rpm i was using on floppy and yes i took a look at the no modem thread and i reliaze that the driver on the no modem site is for Redhat 8 tar.gz driver. I need a Redhat 9 tar.gz driver. I will post the output what i got when i did it with the Redhat 8 tar.gz driver. I'm also going to do a search.

    [dsanta@localhost dsanta]$ su
    Password:
    [root@localhost dsanta]# mount -t umsdos /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
    mount: /dev/fd0 already mounted or /mnt/floppy busy
    mount: according to mtab, /dev/fd0 is already mounted on /mnt/floppy
    [root@localhost dsanta]# cd /mnt/floppy
    [root@localhost floppy]# tar -zxvf pctel-0.9.6.tar.gz

    gzip: stdin: Input/output error
    tar: Child returned status 1
    tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
    [root@localhost floppy]#

    Re:To: Slave Copy

    Derek,

    1. That tar.gz, and most tar.gz files, are not binaries, but source codes. This means it is just programming instructions not release for a specific platform. In other words, that file is not Red Hat specific.

    2. The reason you are getting IO errors is because you have a compressed file on a floppy, and you are trying to decompress it inisde the floppy. where it won't fit.

    So, you need to copy the file out of the floppy and into a directory of your hard drive. /tmp is a good place.


    So that means you need to change into the floppy directory, and issue something like

    cp pctel-0.9.6.tar.gz /tmp

    That will copy it to the /tmp folder.

    Then, change to the /tmp directory and decompress it there, and follow the instructions.

    Re:To: Slave Copy

    I did not understand a single thing you said. You just got me lost. First there is no /tmp in Windows so how do you want me to copy it to that file and as the rest of your post goes i did not understand.

    Re:To: Slave Copy

    I did not mentioned Windows at any point. I am talking about things you do in linux.

    If you don't understand what I said, please point to what part you did not understood, and I will try to explain it further.
