It is nights like that that I appreciate the simple pleasures of linux….
I run Windows 7 x64 as my main OS on my IBM T500 (a lovely machine) – but thanks to the short sightedness of Kyocera I cannot use my iBurst PCMCIA modem with it.
So, instead of asking my coding partner in crime, TheRodent to work his magic I plodded away at the old ibdriver architecture to get it working under Ubuntu Karmic Koala x64 (my secondary OS)… Now, 2 hours later I have a fully working iBurst driver that works with the newer limux kernels … what a pleasure.
Now, if only writing / fixing / improving drivers for Windows 7 was nearly as easy.
Guess I need to make these changes available….. If anyone needs em ping here
Herewith an updated version of the package. Its known to work with the PCMCIA drivers – I’ve had some reports of issues under USB but have not had a chance to test it … Any of the iBurster (the company not their clients) please feel free to provide modems for testing 😉
Update 2009-11-07: Have tested the version with the old style UTC and the old
UTD via USB
and both seem to work as expected.
Now we eagerly await the option for network-manager to actually support pppoe over ‘non-wired’ connections
