Re: Huawei E3372: still a problem


I think that you are right. It seems that a piecemeal installation 
from the later debian version 
will get too difficult. 

I really don't even remember, if that other machine, where that 
Huawei will finally go, has got more than one partition; 
it was installed by me, but... 

And the guy using it, is really quite inexperienced, it would be too much work 
for him, to do updating of the testing version all the time... 

I might anyway trying with still one more computer 
and put there that later distribution,..   

I will see, what I will do. 

Maybe there is way to get the info from the 'jessie' package for later 
Huawei to be written to to the stable version's package... 

... so that the package would start working with E3372 , 
but not completely  needed to be replaced from the later version???

 From my own experience, trying
 to upgrade from one Debian distribution
 to a
 later one piecemeal doesn't work.  I would suggest
 completely to Jessie: update the
 sources list and do an 'apt-get
 Or, if you have /home separate, install Jessie
 over whatever you have
 currently.  This often works best and is one of the main
 reasons for having separate disk partitions for
 / and /home.
