I run single boot suse 10 machine and a few days ago I came across DSL. I thought it might be an excellent rescue mobile system on an usb flashdisk (I am quite new to linux and tinkering too much makes having a rescue system necessary). Installation went without problems - I boot from usb and everything runs just great.
But I would like to have an Internet connection on DSL. I don't use ethernet here, but Sagem F@st 800 adsl modem and I have to install the drivers for it. Compilation isn't possible, cause there is no gcc in DSL, and I only know "./configure - make - make install" compilation and installation method. So I tried debian package with the drivers.
I copied missing dpkg directory to /var/lib and run the following command:
sudo dpkg -i driversfilename.deb
The result was whole terminal filled with "invalid control file in: driversfilename.deb"
Any ideas for solving this problem?
Or maybe some of you use sagem f@st 800 modem and know the other way to make it work?
thanks a lot for any help.
