3G Modem on Minimtyth

Post by causality »

Hi;
I compiled gar-minimyth-0.21.0-64 succesfully.

I want to connect to internet from my setup box via ZTE HSDPA USB MODEM MF622.

I patched c3-2 kernel configuration and I changed usbserial module.
USB_SERIAL_GENERIC=y.

Then I wrote a script in /rootfs-ro/etc/rc.d/init/for3g

Code: Select all

modprobe -r usbserial
modprobe usbserial vendor=0x19d2 product=0x0001
Then, I have /dev/ttyUSB0,/dev/ttyUSB1,/dev/ttyUSB2,/dev/ttyUSB3 devices, now.

Now, I am needing ppp tools.

I am making a new garpackage that named ppp
My Makefile likes this,

Code: Select all

GARNAME=ppp
GARVERSION=2.4.4
CATEGORIES=my
MASTER_SITES=http://ftp.osuosl.org/pub/blfs/svn/p/
DISTFILES=$(DISTNAME).tar.gz
LICENCE = GPL3
DESCRIPTION = PPP for Minimyth
DEPENDS= lang/c

CONFIGURE_SCRIPTS = $(WORKSRC)/configure
BUILD_SCRIPTS = $(WORKSRC)/Makefile
INSTALL_SCRIPTS = $(WORKSRC)/Makefile


CONFIGURE_ARGS= $(DIRPATHS) --build=$(GARBUILD) --host=$(GARHOST)

include ../../gar.mk
I am taken compile errors like that "pcap.h : no such file or directory"


Is there a GAR Package about PPP ?
Do you have a plan about implementing PPP on Minimyth ?

Can you help me ?

I have no plans to add PPP.

I suspect the problem is that ppp depends on libpcap, which is not included in MiniMyth. Therefore, you would need to add libpcap as well.

I am curious. What is the reason for connecting a wireless WAN modem to a MiniMyth frontend?
