eciadsl
A documentation for installing EciAdsl driver on OpenBSD has been written by Benoit Papillault.
This can be useful for installing driver on other BSD versions.

Hi
Using this documentation,
i did not succed in installing the driver on NetBSD 1.6.2
I've got the following error
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lpthread
while trying to compile the driver

Is there an other thing which i had forget?
Thanks

I think pthread library is not installed on your system. Try to install it, then compile again the driver.

Hi

Here are the steps i've followed in trying to install the eci adsl driver on my NetBSD 1.6.2

I/ When installing my OS (NetBSD 1.6.2) i downloaded and installed all the available packages on my computer (don't worry i've got enough space for that :);) ). i've changed the shell to /usr/pkg/bin/bash.

II/ Then i followed all the steps from the documentation .
i/ Every thing went fine before i began compiling the driver .
At that moment i got the bloody error.
gcc -ansi -pedantic -Wall -W -I/usr/local/include -c -o eci-load1.o eci-load1.c
eci-load1.c: In function `main':
eci-load1.c:415: warning: implicit declaration of function `basename'

gcc -lpthread eci-load1.o util.o -L/usr/local/lib -lpusb -o eci-load1
ld: cannot find -lpthread
gmake: *** [eci-load1] Error 1

ii/ Looking for solution, i read BENOIT Papillault advising us to run a gmake clean; rm *.o then run ./configure

Here are the logs i got

bash-2.05b# gmake clean; rm *.o

iii/ then i edited the Makefile and changed the line 29 from LDLIBS += -L/usr/local/lib -lpusb to
LDLIBS += -L/usr/local/lib -L/usr/pkg/pthreads/lib -lpusb

Then i re-ran the following commands ...

iv / At this step i tried to change the line 28 of the Makefile (CFLAGS += -I/usr/local/include) but i did not succeed in compiling.
Then i edited semaphore.c file and commented the lines 24 and 32 so that the union semun can be declared.

then i re-ran
gmake clean; rm *.o
gmake eci-load1 eci-load2 pppoeci

then i succeeded in compiling the driver. See the logs

At this moment, i was happy thinking every would be fine .
Then i configured my ppp.conf and placed it in /etc/ppp

This command is running fine
./eci-load1 0x0547 0x2131 0x0915 0x8000 firmware00.bin

The second one did not finish its execution so i couldn't run the last one
./eci-load2 0x0915 0x8000 synch01.bin

I don't know what happened
The only thing i noticed it's that the green ligth of my modem stopped flashing but i didn't got the message saying eci-load2
successefuly

Hi All
Did someone succed in running the driver on NetBSD 1.6.2 ?

After hard insvetigations i succed in compiling it and and running the two following commands correctly

./eci-load1 0x0547 0x2131 0x0915 0x8000 firmware00.bin

./eci-load2 0x0915 0x8000 synch01.bin

But the last one

ppp -background adsl did not succed
and i've in my /var/log/messages

the bloody messages

ppp[309]: tun0: Phase: Unknown protocol 0x0063
Child failed (errdead)


Can someone help me please ?

I've succed the installation and run it on OpenBSD 3.5
But i need recompile my kernel before it works.
I was oblige to remove the DIAGNOSTIC option
in the file /sys/conf/GENERIC

I'm planning to find exactly whats wrong with NetBSD 1.6.2

So see you soon

Thanks FlashCode and his friends.
