Re: Re: knoppix HD-install problem
Thank you Robert for your interest and excuse my long delay in replying.
In fact my original post was a bit out of target; to try and focus on my
actual problem I should point out that:
(i) I started with Knoppix and had no problems with the installation;
(ii) I downloaded Sid (Debian 3.1 unstable, did I get that part right?) but
got an incomplete overall installation due to inexperience and soft modem
(iii) I am at present trying to get my driver for the soft winmodem
installed once again on Sid (it got lost somewhere in the process), so as
to resume my downloads and possibly end up with the complete distro I was
So I downloaded (via Windoze) the slmodem-2.9.10.tar.gz tarball, read the
instructions and followed them; after configuring the PATH to the build
directory I proceeded to the Make command. Got a whole bunch of errors, the
first of which is:
"In file included from /usr/include/errno.h:36, from modem_main.c49:
/usr/include/bits/errno.h:25:26 linux/errno.h: No such file or directory"
Investigation showed no /linux/ directory exists on my Debian 3.1. Further
investigation led me to the following bug, reported by a Debian list:
Could there be a connection between the bug and my compilation problems? If
so, how could I work around the problem?
Thank you for any possible suggestion.
