Posted by ArthurII on Mar. 16 2007,23:04Hi, how do you install the hsfmodem.dsl extension on DSL?
Posted by Juanito on Mar. 17 2007,04:08The extension can be loaded like any other from the right-click menu - did you have a look at the info file?
Once loaded, enter "modprobe /dev/ttySHSF" as root from a terminal window and the modem should be assigned to device /dev/ttySHSF0
Posted by ArthurII on Mar. 29 2007,02:42Hi, I have tried loading the extension using the myDSC Extension Tool, then clicking on 'Load Local', but it does not then show up in the menu; any help here? I also have a problem with DSL where it seems to delete any files which I may put on the hard disk, after a reboot, including any extensions I may try to load.

As for DSL deleting your files, I would guess they are maybe on /ramdisk/tmp or /tmp rather than on your hd?
Posted by ArthurII on Mar. 30 2007,07:33I'm getting the error 'You must be logged in as user "dsl" to install a myDSL extension.'
I use the 'login' command for this? I can't remember inputting a password, so what might it be, and how could I reset it? Thank you.
Posted by Juanito on Mar. 30 2007,07:37If you get this error, it means you opened a terminal window as root - either:
1. Open a terminal window as user and re-type the command
2. Type "su dsl mydsl-load /path-to-file/hsfmodem.dsl"
