The Eagle USB DSL modem packages work with the Eagle 8051 Analog modems, such as the Sagem F@st 800.
To check if the packages are installed on your system run:
rpm -q eagle kernel-usb-eagle
If they are not installed, you can install them by running as root:
apt-get update apt-get install eagle kernel-usb-eagle depmod -a
Or, since you may not be on the 'net yet...you can install them from CDROM:
mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom cd /mnt/cdrom/BLAG/RPMS rpm -Uvh eagle-* kernel-usb-eagle-* depmod -a
(Note the package may be renamed kernel-module-usb-eagle in the future.)
Then plug in your modem. To see how it faired, run:
Or look in the logfile:
/var/log/messages. If you really want to find out lots of info about it, run:
Load driver into kernel
To load the driver into your kernel run as root:
The configuration files are:
You should make a backup of this file before you edit it, in case you want to revert to the original
cp -p /etc/eagle-usb/eagle-usb.conf /etc/eagle-usb/eagle-usb.conf-dist
You will need to make changes to these lines:
#POTS FOR EAGLE OPTN0=80020066
The OPTNO will need to be changed to the telephone number (guess).
VPI and VCI need to be changed to values given to you by the Internet Service Provider.
You may need to change the encapsulation:
#The following values are valid for encapsulation : #MPOA_MODE_BRIDGED_ETH_LLC ----> 1 #MPOA_MODE_BRIDGED_ETH_VC ----> 2 #MPOA_MODE_ROUTED_IP_LLC ----> 3 #MPOA_MODE_ROUTED_IP_VC ----> 4 #MPOA_MODE_PPPOA_LLC ----> 5 #MPOA_MODE_PPPOA_VC ----> 6 Encapsulation=00000006
You don't need to change anything if your Internet Service Provider is using PPP over ATM. If they are using a different encapsulation, you'll have to change the values. Translation:
1 = Bridged Ethernet LLC 2 = Bridged Ethernet Virtual Circuit 3 = Routed IP LLC 4 = Routed IP Virtual Circuit 5 = PPP over ATM LLC 6 = PPP over ATM Virtual Circuit
You probably don't need to change other values in the file.
Documentation files are in:
Where version is the version you are running such as eagle-1.9.6
There are two firmware files:
If needed you'll probably need the second one, unless you know you are on ISDN (not very common).
