I just want to ask whether AVM's Fritz!Card DSL driver will be included in one
of the next LiveCDs?
The driver is available here: ftp://ftp.avm.de/cardware/fritzcrd.dsl/linux/
(This is my first bug report, I'm sorry if I did anything wrong.)

AVM's FRITZ!Card DSL driver
This patch add AVM's FRITZ!Card DSL driver in gentoo-source tree, it is against
In order to use this FRITZ!Card driver, a couple of kernel modules are
capi.o, capiutils.o, kernelcapi.o and capifs.o. The source code for these
is part of the linux kernel in directory /usr/src/linux/drivers/isdn/avmb1 and
will be compiled with the kernel if the following settings are found in the
For "make menuconfig" go to "ISDN subsystem", "Active cards" and select:
<M> CAPI2.0 support
[*] Verbose reason code reporting (kernel size +=7K)
[*] CAPI2.0 Middleware support (EXPERIMENTAL)
<M> CAPI2.0 /dev/capi support
[*] CAPI2.0 filesystem support
<M> CAPI2.0 capidrv interface support
In addtion to these entries, please enable entry "Prompt for development
and/or incomplete code/drivers" in the very first menu named "Code maturity
After the kernel's compilation, all CAPI modules can be found in directory
- The CAPI tools and libraries originate from the capi4k-utils package
(I think that gentoo portage has an ebuild for it).
The "make modules_install" copies the compiled modules into the system
/lib/modules/X.Y.Z/kernel/drivers/net/fritz. Then they are loaded by the CAPI
"capiinit". This tool requires the information about which cards or card
drivers are to
be loaded (/etc/capi.conf).
livecd bugs, not release bugs
kernel team bug
Has anything been done with this? Am I the first kernel dev to look at this?
Perhaps this would best be handled with an ebuild to build it as an external module. Would you mind writing a quick ebuild to see if it works?
Wow, this one's a year old. Closing.
