I have the Linux source for drivers for Ireland's new 4G network
launching soon. Unlike 3G/HSDPA /Edge/GPRS it is pure IP, adsl type
latency though ping does go up to 3G latency for one packet on base
I want to build it for Fedora, Ubuntu, etc and Elf3 handheld from
Inhand and GP2X from Gamepark Holdings.
However the source was last built I think on RH enterprise with a 2.6.9
kernel and won't compile on anything I try. I've tried Fedora Core6,
CentOS, Debian 2.4 and Hoary Hedgehog. The pre-built ft1000.ko module
won't load on anything (wrong kernel error).
If anyone interested in this project I might be able to provide suitable
I've some programming experience but none building Kernel Modules. They
seem to have changed the struct for the net_device in network.h around
2.6.13, is that possible?
The source is available. On Windows XP, the PCMCIA modem has no
configuration at all, simply looks like a 10Mbps ethernet NIC in SW. No
dialup connection, passwords, keys, SIMs or anything like that needed.
USB and PC express card modems will be available a few months after
launch. I expect this will be cheaper and faster than 3G/HSDPA
packages from what I've seen and heard. Obviously before launch that
can't be known.
