Help: Installing Device Drivers On Ubuntu Help installing ADSL driver on Ubuntu

Binod Singh

I am new to Linux. I have just installed Ubuntu 5.10 on Pentium Xeon XSeries 226 server. I want to install driver for my existing Zyxel 630-11 ADSL modem to connect to the internet. I have also downloaded the driver from sourceforge in .tgz format.I don't know how to install this driver. If anyone know... please help me.


Just try to double-click on the tgz file, you will see if ubuntu installed all the necessary things in order to uncompress this tgz file.If not, I would suggest first, to put this file on a Microsoft Windows machine which has winrar installed, and then use winrar to uncompress the tgz file. Then, when uncompressed, you will probably see there a readme file explaining what to do exactly.RegardsYordanBy the way, how is your PC connected to that modem ? Through an Ethernet cable, or through an USB cable ?


Usually, there is an installation program included INSIDE the tarball (.tar or tgz)xboxrulz

Namely binod12 wanted to know how to read a tgz file... So knowing that the answer is inside the file looks far more frustrating...

@binod12 : your tgz file should be uncompressed by the following command :

tar xzvf my_filename.tgz


or if you have KDE, open it with Arkxboxrulz
