Re: Driver for 536ep-Modem does not compile

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Dear Ludwig, dear Philippe,

Ludwig, many thanks for your helpful comments! (I am answering in English, so that Philippe can understand, I hope that is o.k.) First of all I must say, that I agree with your opinion on openSUSE 11.4: I was really happy with SUSE 10.3, but openSUSE 11.4 costs me a lot of grey hairs because of the many many buggy programs...

Concerning the /etc/resolv.conf I had already found out (spending much time with trial and error) that the file cannot be dynamically adapted at the same time by the NetworkManager and the modem. So I concluded for myself that I have to switch off the NetworkManager completely in YAST if I want to use the modem, because I thought I need the DNS specific to the router/internet provider/server. This worked indeed, but what I learned from your comments is that I can just statically insert _any_ existing (but not private) DNS-address and that will serve for both, modem and NetworkManager. So if I try

nameserver 8.8.8.8
nameserver 8.8.4.4

(the nameservers of google I found in the net) I can indeed connect via modem and via NetworkManager with the same resolv.conf. This solves my problem with the modem (wvdial and kppp now work without having to switch off the NetworkManager) and makes (networking-)life sufficiently simple. Thank you for this helpful instruction! By the way, do you have a preferred choice of DNS-adresses? The just mentioned ones seem to slow down my internet connection.

Philippe, do you need more information for adapting the ep536-drivers to openSUSE? As far as I am concerned things now seem to work fine. Many thanks for your great help!

All the best
Wolfgang

Hallo Wolfgang,

um mich endgültig unbeliebt zu machen:
In der resolv.conf muss mindestens ein funktionierender und erreichbarer Nameserver stehen.
Der Eintrag 192.168.0.1 in deiner resolv.conf fällt sowohl nach Wikipedia

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Private_IP-Adresse

als auch nach RIPE (Suche mit 192.168.0.1)

https://apps.db.ripe.net/search/query.html

in den privaten Adressbereich, taugt also nicht wirklich als Nameserveradresse. Selbst wenn es sich tatsächlich um einen Nameserver deines DSL_Providers handeln sollte, dürfte er kaum auf anderem Weg als über die direkte DSL-Verbindung, z.B. über 56K-Modem und/oder einen anderen Provider, zu erreichen sein.

Hallo Wolfgang,

bitte um Entschuldigung, dass ich mich ungefragt in die Diskussion einmische.

Seit SuSE nicht mehr SuSE ist sondern openSUSE, scheint Qualität nicht mehr wirklich ein Ziel der Entwicklung zu sein. Sachen, die in 9.0 und 10.3 noch aus der Schachtel (bzw. von der DVD) funktionierten, verlangen in 11.4 Bastelei.

U.a. wird die resolv.conf nicht, wie behauptet, automatisch editiert. Sowohl für das smartlink-Softmodem (als auch für ein DSL-Modem) musste ich dieselbe manuell ändern. Ich habe jetzt nur noch drin stehen:

nameserver xxx.xxx.x.x
nameserver yyy.yyy.y.y

_Alles_ Andere rausgelöscht. Seither funzt es.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen
Ludwig Gebauer

Betreff: Re: Driver for 536ep-Modem does not compile

Dear Philippe,

this time your test-script gives:

linux:~/Installationen/Modem-536ep/b # sh test.sh
### BEGIN INIT INFO >> /etc/init.d/536EP
insserv: warning: script 'S01Intel536_boot' missing LSB tags and

insserv: warning: script 'vpnclient_init' missing LSB tags and
overrides
linux:~/Installationen/Modem-536ep/b # echo $?
0
...................................................................

As far as I understand the comments in the thread you discovered
one can just ignore the comments about the "missing LSB tags"?

Concerning the DNS-issue I have the file /etc/resolv.conf, which
reads

### /etc/resolv.conf file autogenerated by netconfig!
#
# Before you change this file manually, consider to define the
# static DNS configuration using the following variables in the
# /etc/sysconfig/network/config file:
#     NETCONFIG_DNS_STATIC_SEARCHLIST
#     NETCONFIG_DNS_STATIC_SERVERS
#     NETCONFIG_DNS_FORWARDER
# or disable DNS configuration updates via netconfig by setting:
#     NETCONFIG_DNS_POLICY=''
#
# See also the netconfig(8) manual page and other documentation.
#
# Note: Manual change of this file disables netconfig too, but
# may get lost when this file contains comments or empty lines
# only, the netconfig settings are same with settings in this
# file and in case of a "netconfig update -f" call.
#
### Please remove (at least) this line when you modify the file!
search localdomain site
nameserver 192.168.0.1
.................................................................

The 192.168.0.1 is the DNS of my DSL-provider. Is there anything
wrong with it?

Sincerely
Wolfgang

It seems that SUSE has adapted wvdial, because I didn't look for
'www.suse.de', this seems to be a built-in DNS-check of SUSE. The
option
"Auto DNS = " in the wvdial.conf is also due to SUSE and asks whether
to
get the DNS from the provider or not. I tried "0" and "1" but
experienced the same behaviour with both choices.

Cordially

efax sounds quite excellent with absolutely nothing abnormal in
/var/log/messages. wvdial sound much better. For wvdial, I think you
should have a closer look at your /etc/wvdial.conf. I would need your
wvdial run output to better understand the problem you are facing. My
guess is that pppd does not correctly setup your Internet connection.

This looked quite pretty to my, so I tried wvdial (not wvdialconf,
which
looks for the wrong serial ports), and in fact I get a stable
connection
to an Internet Provider of my choice!!
The bad news is, there is no throughput, wvdial says the following:

--> warning, address lookup does not work
--> Nameserver (DNS) failure, the connection may not work.

This seems to be a new issue or is it connected to anything before?
Anyway, if you think at some point it's useful to ssh to my computer,
I
wouldn't mind.

Sincerely
Wolfgang

Dear Wolgang,

Yes indeed I was a bit surprised that in a so population dense
region
such as Aachen and in a so developed country such as Germany you did
not have a broadband facility. But I played your game.

Perhaps, I poorly expressed myself. The build
/etc/init.d/Intel536_boot and /etc/init.d/vpnclient_init you just
sent
me are NOT fully suited to a modern SUSE distribution such as yours
as
it showed up with $ sudo make install with the "set -x" you added on
my demand. These two boot scripts show errors when installing them.
Can you send me any other one but these two boot scripts you will
find
in /etc/init.d ?

Why do I insist on running efax first ? This is because it is a much
simpler software using the modem only involving itself. It is much
more easy to understand what can be going wrong with the driver's
installation and anyhow and above all if efax does not run
correctly,
there is strictly no hope that wvdial will correctly work. In
conclusion, efax with its simplicity is an ideal candidate to
troubleshoot any modem driver.

Note that for the runs below I run a special driver that I modified
for one user also running a Fedora 16 distribution. The previous
version showed up one kernel oops under kernel 3.1.x that I never
noticed under 2.6.x kernels. So I keep this in my mind, just in case
my changes need more work. I just commented out parts of the code in
a
problem reproduced 536EP run using efax. I am not yet fully sure
about
the code parts I can safely recomment in. As you have a DSL
subscription, this oops and its temporary solution is described at

http://vouters.dyndns.org/tima/Linux-drivers-Troubleshooting_a_oops.html

for your curiosity.

Read hereafter my today's run under Linux Fedora 16 (kernel 3.2.6).
If
you do not read such, we shall adjust for our next mail exchanges.

Also as I feel you are confident in me and provided we are really
short of ideas, would you authorize me with much care against
possible
unwanted intruders to SSH connect to your SUSE system ? I already
did
it for a modem issue connecting to a computer somewhere in Latin
America. I have been remotely working on the system while its owner
who was so tired was quietly sleeping. When he woke up, he noticed a
mail from me telling his modem was perfectly working. I got such a
warm thank that I'll never forget it.

With my warmest regards to you.
Philippe

Dear Philippe,

I have been using your modem drivers on this computer for almost
ten
years, starting from my very first ancient Redhat-installation
until my
previous SUSE 10.3-distribution. They have been invaluable to me
and I
am much indebted to you for your
great job! Nowadays I am using DSL to connect to the internet, as
probably most of us do, and would like to use the modem for sending
faxes and as an alternative, if DSL is down. But not everybody in
the
world is in such a comfortable position and I think it is really
worthwhile to keep the drivers up to date. After all, this is one
of the
great things about Linux, that I can have the most uptodate and
excellent system on a 10 year old computer (but with good
hardware...).
If I tried to put Windows7 on my computer it wouldn't make a
peep...
Therefore I am happy that I can assist you in improving the code,
and
after all, it's fun to solve a problem and learn a little bit more
about
linux.

Having said this let us come back to our problem:

I didn't quite understand if you also need the Intel536_boot script
from
/etc/init.d. Isn't this the same as from your tarball?

The shell output of your commands are as follows:

Dear Wolfgang,

First it does look like that the intel-536-537/Intel536_inst shell
code we have been working on needs some improvements for a SUSE
distribution to avoid the warning messages.

To improve this code, can you send me one but the Intel536_boot
and
vpnclient_init scripts. Both of these two are wrong for a SUSE
distribution. You will find one in /etc/init.d/. I shall use it as
a
model for correct SUSE boot script programming.

However now, the Intel536.ko driver gets correctly installed in
/lib/modules/2.6.37.1-1.2-default/kernel/drivers/char/Intel536.ko

Can you from two terminals do the following ?

From one user account terminal:
$ tail -f /var/log/messages

From a root account terminal:
ls -l /dev/modem
ls -l /dev/536*
/etc/init.d/Intel536_boot status
/etc/init.d/Intel536_boot stop
/etc/init.d/Intel536_boot start

And you send me both screen captures.

There is one message which shows something really wrong that I
cannot
figure out where the fault comes from:
Feb 16 18:12:33 linux modem-manager: (tty/536ep0): could not get
port's
parent device
Why tty in tty/536ep0 ???? And this message comes from linux
modem-manager, a software I have no control over and I never used
on
my Fedora distribution.

Anyhow and from now on, reload my
http://vouters.dyndns.org/Intel/Intel-Readme.html Print out its
content and follow carefully each step of the guide. Prior to
testing
with wvdial, use efax which is either in your /usr/bin directory
or
that you can download from http://vouters.dyndns.org/Intel/ in
source
zip format. To build the binary:
$ cd efax
$ make -f Makefile_original
If ls /usr/bin/efax says nothing, then replace efax by ./efax in
the
command I document.

The module Intel536.ko is being loaded, the devices /dev/536ep
and
/dev/536ep0 are created and the device /dev/modem as a link to
/dev/536ep. The Intel536_boot-script goes into /etc/init.d,
/etc/init.d/rc3.d and /etc/init.d/rc5.d. All seems to be fine,
but
when
I try $wvdialconf I still get the answer

Sorry, no modem was detected!

I did a reboot of the machine to look for boot-messages, and in
fact
I get

Also, in the IRQ-list the modem does not show up. What might be
the
reason for this?

Many thanks for your help!

Dear Wolfgang,

Outside subject and first, I am very surprised nm outputs a
bunch of
thousand symbols as one of the shell instructions which composes
the $
make 536 is to strip the symbols. I surely missed something
here.

Back to your concern, an installable Intel536.ko by $ sudo make
install. As far as I understand what is happening on your side,
the
first D=`ls /etc/*-release 2>/dev/null | tr [:upper:] [:lower:]`
assignment in intel536-537/Intel536_inst sounds correct. It
returns
"/etc/lsb-release /etc/suse-release" with the "suse" substring
being
exploitable.

However as it also returns the substring "lsb", the second
D=`sed -r
's/DISTRIB_ID=(\w+)/\1/' /etc/lsb-release | tr [:upper:]
[:lower:]` leads to an unexploitable result.

As you are the very first one reporting me this bug despite me
maintaining this Intel code for many years, before I do change
anything in it, I must be aware how all the other handled Linux
distributions return the first D assignment. If none of them
return an
lsb substring, I shall comment out this second D assignment. If
anyone
of them displays lsb, then I must be aware on what is returned
by the
second D assignment.

On my Linux Fedora 16 ,here is what tells the first D
assignment:
[philippe@victor intel-536-537]$ echo $D
/etc/fedora-release /etc/redhat-release /etc/system-release
So no lsb substring and the redhat substring being exploitable
for
the
rest of the code.

As a first and temporary conclusion for us to progress toward
your
satisfaction, edit with the editor of your choice the file
intel536-537/Intel536_inst and manage to have the lines:

# determine distribution:
D=`ls /etc/*-release 2>/dev/null | tr [:upper:] [:lower:]`;

case $D in
*lsb*) D=`sed -r 's/DISTRIB_ID=(\w+)/\1/' /etc/lsb-release | tr
[:upper:] [:lower:]`;;
esac

look like:

# determine distribution:
D=`ls /etc/*-release 2>/dev/null | tr [:upper:] [:lower:]`;

# case $D in
# *lsb*) D=`sed -r 's/DISTRIB_ID=(\w+)/\1/' /etc/lsb-release |
tr #
[:upper:] [:lower:]`;;
# esac

This way the second "case $D" just after should correctly
recognize
your distribution as being a SUSE distribution.

As you are a very trustful collaborator, I suggest you also
temporary
add in this file a "set -x" without the double quotes on top of
it so
that it looks like:


#***********************************************************************************




set -x
KERNVER=`uname -r`
echo "running kernel $KERNVER"

This way everyone will be able to control how well this shell
code
executes.

Best regards,
Philippe

Dear Philippe,

I am happy to assist you in solving the problem!

First of all, $nm Intel536.ko outputs a bunch of several
thousand
symbols.

For your first D, $ echo $D gives the output
"/etc/lsb-release /etc/suse-release"

and for the second D

lsb_version="core-2.0-noarch:core-3.2-noarch:core-4.0-noarch:core-2.0-ia32:




core-3.2-ia32:core-4.0-ia32"

Dear Wolfgang,

I notice you are clever and it's pretty enjoyable to work with
you. I
thought my find command was correct. However I neglected to
test it
before submitting it to you and this is my fault.

The $ make 536 warning you read is quite expected and has
always
existed since the very beginning I inheird this code from
Intel
Corp.
The fact is that Intel did not provide all necessary files for
a
clean
make with no warning. Just for your curiosity : if you perform
the
command
$ ls -la coredrv/
that there are two *core.lib files with no *core.lib.cmd
unlike the
other files when you will build them with make 536 and if you
do
the
command:
$ file <on each of these two *core.lib>
you'll see they are 32-bits ELF binary files. This is because
of
these
two binary files, I claim Linux 32 bits support only in my
Intel-Readme.html on my Web site.

Now back to something you are expecting : a working correctly
installed 536EP driver which you can use to connect to
Internet via
wvdial.

First and to check everything is indeed correct you should now
have an
Intel536.ko file in your intel-536-537/ directory. To even
make it
surer, a:
$ nm Intel536.ko
ought to say no symbols

If the above is quite correct, let us figure out why $ sudo
make
install fails on your computer returning the string:
unknown distribution - no boot scripts have been installed
The answer should be in intel536-537/Intel536_inst on the
shell
code
line you may test outside the burden of the $ make install
First:
$ D=`ls /etc/*-release 2>/dev/null | tr [:upper:] [:lower:]`
$ echo $D
Next if echo $D display lsb
D=`sed -r 's/DISTRIB_ID=(\w+)/\1/' /etc/lsb-release | tr
[:upper:]
[:lower:]`
echo $D should contain on you side the string "suse" as you
say you
run a SUSE distribution. As it seems and as a fact from your
cut'n
paste, echo $D should contain no "suse" string, nor any of the
other
recognized and dealt with distributions:
mandrake, redhat, redflag, conectiva, ubuntu, debian,
slackware,gentoo, knoppix.


So please mail us what tells each echo $D above. With this
information, I shall be able to guide you aiming at your full
satisfaction.

However, more mail exchanges and work need to be performed in
close
collaboration with you. Currently I am on a totally dark land
with
your Linux distribution. Two items to be known with your
actual
distribution : where should the init scripts be installed ?
Next
what
is its common method to activate them at boot time ?

With my warmest regards,
Philippe

Dear Philippe,

your find-command does not give any output on my computer. I
nevertheless tried your suggestion, to change the occurances
of
(2,6,38)
to (2,6,37) in coredrv.c, locks.c and softserial_io.c .
And in fact, the $ make 536 goes through then with only a
warning

WARNING: could not find

for

/root/Installationen/Modem-536ep/intel-536-537/coredrv/536core.lib


and the $ make install goes through with the warning

unknown distribution - no boot scripts have been installed

However, if I follow your advices in the readme.txt, to make
the
modem work

$ insmod -f Intel536.ko
$ mknod /dev/536ep c 240 1
$ ln -s /dev/536ep /dev/modem

then no modem is detected, e.g. $ wvdialconf replies

Sorry, no modem was detected!

or if I start kppp and scan for the modem, then the computer
freezes. So
at the moment I do not understand what exactly happens.

Sincerely,

Wolfgang,

In coredrv/coredrv.c which fails to compile at line 779 on
your
side,
I do the following:
#if LINUX_VERSION_CODE >= KERNEL_VERSION(2,6,38)
#define DECLARE_MUTEX DEFINE_SEMAPHORE
#endif

DECLARE_MUTEX(exec_reg_sem);
DECLARE_WAIT_QUEUE_HEAD(persistWriteQ);
DECLARE_WAIT_QUEUE_HEAD(persistReadQ);
DECLARE_WAIT_QUEUE_HEAD(persistShutdownQ);

The above means that if kernel is 2.6.38 or higher, the
DECLARE_MUTEX(exec_reg_sem) reads as
DEFINE_SEMAPHORE(exec_reg_sem)
I might perhaps have missed that kernel 2.6.37 (your kernel
version)
also needs DEFINE_SEMAPHORE.

To make sure, may I ask you to do the following on your
computer:
$ find /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build/include \
-exec grep DEFINE_SEMAPHORE {} \; -print

At fist glance, this find command should return matches on
your
system.

If I refer to your experience, all
LINUX_VERSION_CODE >= KERNEL_VERSION(2,6,38) must be changed
to
LINUX_VERSION_CODE >= KERNEL_VERSION(2,6,37)
The changes to be brought are in files coredrv/coredrv.c,
coredrv/locks.c and coredrv/softserial_io.c

If the find command displays DEFINE_SEMAPHORE, you may
change the
code
yourself. You just edit those three files searching for
2,6,38
and
replace every occurence by 2,6,37. Then you tell us whether
a $
make
536
now builds just as fine under your kernel version.

Thank you in advance to keep us informed.

Dear Wolfgang,

I do not know what can be wrong.
Try the following:
$ cd intel-536-537
$ uname -r|grep "2.6" && \ cd coredrv && make
INTEL_MODEM=536EP
536core_26 && \
cp Intel536.ko .. && cd .. && \
strip --strip-debug Intel536.ko

If the above does not output CC and LD strings, try
$ cd coredrv
$ make INTEL_MODEM=536EP 536core_26

and reply to everyone with the cut and paste of what your
read on
your
terminal screen.

Thanks in advance.

Philippe,

I may be misinterpreting your words, but you write

"If you run a 2.6.x kernel, then you will need
../Intel/intel-536EP-537EP_2011_12_03.tar.bz2"

Since I am running the kernel 2.6.37.1-1.2-default of
SUSE
11.4 I
downloaded the intel-536EP-537EP_2011_12_03.tar.bz2, but
obtain
after
"make 536" the following output, reported in my previous
message:

(the german text in lines 4 and 6 means "couldn't find
file or

Wolfgang,

You did not pay enough attention to what I write in the
TARBALLS
KERNEL COMPATIBILITY: chapter of my
http://vouters.dyndns.org/Intel/Intel-Readme.html
document.
Download
the correct tarball suited for a 2.6.x Linux kernel
which
your
SUSE
11.4 runs as per your indications.

Wolfgang,

This is a new problem that has arised since files were
changed.
Phillipe has made some changes to the code to
accomodate
them.
However, they were for newer kernels. Adding CC to
Phillipe
so he
can
make some recommendations.

Phillipe,

Wolfgang has Intel-536ep-Modem in his Notebook and want
for
it to
run
under SUSE 11.4 with kernel 2.6.37.1-1.2-default. I
recommended
the
latest driver from your site, but he appears to be
having
problems.

do
"make
