I'm trying to connect to the Internet through Linux, and having a few
problems. I've got a Euroviva 33.6 SP modem which works fine and dandy in
both Win 95 and NT4. It's PnP, so I played around with pnpdump to try to
get it recognised, but whathever settings I tried (even the ones that
worked in Windows) didn't seem to work. My method of testing was to run
minicom and dial into Indigo. I didn't get the modem picking up the line.
Then I disabled PnP in the bios (used ICU I think), and tried again. This
time I had more success. When I tried dialling, nothing happened, but when
minicom exited (and reset the modem) there was a double click as it picked
up and hung up the line I suppose. Has anyone any ideas what I can do now?
I was thinking an init string might fix it, but I'm not sure what commands
would help here. Or maybe it's something more fundamentally wrong?
I also thought I'd try the 2.2.2 kernel (off a PC Plus CD) because I'd
heard there was improved PnP support). I installed it into my source
directory, changed the 'linux' link to point to it, and went into the
directory to compile it as I had done with the installed 2.0.34 kernel
last night. I ran make menuconfig, chose the options I'd used before, ran
make clean, and make zImage. It came out with hundreds of warnings/errors
make:*** [init/main.o] Error 1
I'm not sure what's wrong here (I've only successfully compiled the
previous kernel once). Do I need a more up-to-date compiler or library
Finally, I have an Epson Stylus Color 300 which is the bane of my life (no
NT driver, and I haven't got it working yet in Linux) but I'm stuck with
it for the moment. I'm running SuSE 5.2 so I ran YaST to set it up as
stcolor with A4 paper and 360x360 resolution. The problem is that when I
print (e.g. lptest | lpr), the output comes out as though the printer is
approximating black with colour ink (it looks mainly black, but bits of
the characters are coloured), and with two pages to a sheet of paper (like
printing pages of an A5 book on landscape A4). Has anyone any experience
of this printer or any ideas what might fix this problem?
Sorry if these are insultingly easy questions, but I haven't been able to
find answers anywhere I looked.
