Anyway, on the CD there’s a directory with all the code needed to install this driver. They compiled and installed fine but after a reboot I get this message. I’ll be happy to see if I can help you out.

Hopefully this will give me what I need to be able to proceed. I don’t use Debian, however both posters to this thread may find some useful information in another thread I took part in a while back.

NetMos Technology Device Subsystem: A better way to test it is probably to use the command cu which comes in packages with names like uucp. Any pointers would be much appreciated, and maybe this will help the next guy too.


I’m pretty new to linud, so I’m trying to understand what I am missing.
