Thread: iBurst and Linux setup

  1. #31

    Default

    Latest driver
    Pppoe thing + working usb driver

    Extract the driver first(try one in 1st link) and navigate to its directory with console. switch console to root by typing "sudo su".
    Now type "make" followed by "make install"

    Now extract the rp-pppoe thing and navigate to its directory and type "./go" now you should be able to configure the connection settings(username etc)

    To connect, from in root console(sudo su) type pppoe-start and pppoe-stop to disconnect.

    This will work with ubuntu linux and other ubuntu variants as well as some other distros.

    You can extract the driver anywhere, I'd suggest your desktop as its easy to navigate to from the console. Also rename the extracted folder to something simple like "driver"
    Now just navigate to it from a console by typing "cd /home/username/Desktop/driver"(always pay attention to capital letters in the linux console, its very fussy)
    Then type "sudo su" and enter the admin password.
    Now type "make" and then "make install" and the driver will be installed.

    Now from the same console you can install the pppoe setup thing.
    Extract it to you desktop and navigate to it(cd /home/username/Desktop/pppoe) and type "./go" and then follow the instructions in the console. You can also set up the pppoe by typing "./go-gui", this will give you a graphics interface.

    Once your done type pppoe-start in the console and see if it connects.

    If your system hangs after you've installed the driver and your num lock, scroll lock and caps lock lights are flashing you'll have to unplug the modem, reboot, open a console, navigate to the driver folder on your desktop and type "make-uninstall". The hang occurs because of a kernal miss match. If this happens try the driver in the compressed folder that I uploaded(it shouldn't happen with the PCMCIA card, only the usb modem

    Jumping on this thread, followed this link here http://blog.hostinghabitat.com/2009/...-tutorial.html
    everything seems fine, but my connection times out when trying to dial...
    any suggestions?

    edit/ i see when i do a pppoe status, it attaches the link to ppp0, and not ib0, this seems like it could be the issue, but i have told it to dial ib0...why is it doing this?

    Ubuntu 11.04 has Linux kernel 2.6.38, but the latest files for the ib driver project seem to be for the 2.6.36 kernel.

    You may be able to download the source code and compile for your kernel version with a few modifications though.

    When I got my iBurst I had no clue that this page had any info on getting iBurst set up on Linux, and a quick scan over what is so far on the site does not cover everything, so here I am going to write a full tutorial on how to use iBurst on Linux.


    Things you will need:
    * Computer (inc. keyboard, mouse and screen)
    * A working Linux distribution
    * An iBurst modem (I will be working through the information for desktop, USB, and PCMCIA modems)
    * An ibdriver package matching your kernel (go for the 1.3.x series of drivers. If you're not sure about which kernel version driver package to get, get both)
    * The Roaring Penguin package (rp-pppoe, if you can use your distros specific version, so much the better)
    * Network connection (if you are setting up the desktop modem), or if you want to set up sharing of the connection and want to test whether it works


    Now, to start (all 'single'-quote things are command to be typed without the quotes):


    1) plug everything in everywhere
    2) open a terminal window
    3) type 'su --login' if you are on a Red Hat based system (CentOS, Fedora, etc), or 'sudo su -' if you are on a Debian (or Debian-based) or Ubuntu system
    4) you are now root
    5) for people with a desktop modem, type 'ifconfig eth0 192.168.0.10 netmask 255.255.255.0 up' (and follow further instructions here)
    6) for those who are using the PCMCIA modem or the USB modem, follow these instuctions
    NOTE: if your username if charlie then your home dir is at /home/charlie/your_home_dir_stuff_here


    6.a) cd to whichever directory you saved the downloaded files in. If this was on your desktop, the command would be 'cd /home/charlie/Desktop'
    6.b) type 'uname -r'. If you have a 2.6.20 version, use the 2.6.20 specific ibdriver package in the next step. Likewise for the 2.6.17, and for all other 2.6.x versions, use the 2.6 version.
    6.c) extract the files 'tar -xvpf ./ibdriver-ver-si-on.num.ber-here.tar.gz'
    6.d) cd to the newly extracted directory. It has the same name as the archive which you extracted. Thus, if you extracted ibdriver-1.3.2-linux-2.6.17.tar.gz, then the folder will be ibdriver-1.3.2-linux-2.6.17 (note that the .tar.gz is not in the folder name)
    6.e) 'make'
    6.f) if 6.e completed fine, then 'make install'. If it did not complete fine, drop a comment and I will try to help you


    7.a) cd to the directory where the rp-pppoe file was saved after download. Again, if this was your desktop, it would be 'cd /home/charlie/Desktop'
    7.b) Extract the archive 'tar -xvpf rp-pppoe-ver-si.on-here.tar.gz'
    7.c) cd into the new dir 'cd rp-pppoe-ver-si.on-here'
    7.d) Run the script './go' (notice the leading period, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT!!)
    7.e) Type in all your details. when it asks about dns settings, enter 'server' (without quotes). When it asks about firewall, this depends on whether you want to share internet. If you do, say '0' for no settings
    7.f) If you do want to share internet, use "firestarter". Speak to your distro's team for information on installing it or drop a comment on the page and I'll try to help


    8) And this is if you are using Gnome: right-click on the taskbar, "Add to panel". Select modem lights and say add
    9) To start up your connection, just click on the big button on the left side if that thing, and presto


    I will try to add some things to it as soon as possible. Enjoy
    Although I agree this might be useful to some, is it not easier to configure a cheap router? Almost every router supports PPPoE so you should get something that works for around R200-300 and have no issues?

    True, although if leechie only has the iBurst USB terminal there aren't many routers that will work.

    Haven't considered that.

    Test app on 11.04 revealed this.

    Testing your connection to the Internet:

    ERROR:root:Could not find def gateway info in /proc
    ERROR:root:Could not find default gateway by running route

    Bluetooth seems to be disabled as well............

    There is a much easier way - simply connect the iBurst modem to a wireless router.
