If somebody try´s to build the newest Modul for the Card himself, he can´t do
this because you don´t even have a "basic" system before you get online with
this PCI Card. (can´t build the module without gcc)
The Drivers are lokated here:
There´s only a SuSE version, but that´s not the problem, because the precompiled
thing is for SuSE, but you can build the module on other distributions.
Module is called "fcdsl" when it´s done.
In the Archive there´s a file called "install_passive-e.html", with instructions
to build the fcdsl module.
This Module integrates the card, so one can use the card with "pppd call (...)".
thanks for you´re great work so far,
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Buy a AVM Fritz Card DSL ;-)
2. Insert it into a PCI Slot
3. Put Gentoo LiveCD "Basic" in the CD-Rom drive and boot from it.
4. Try to get online with the AVM Fritz Card DSL, he doesn´t recognize it, and
one can´t build it, because there´s no Basic System.
I tried to buikd the module, but it´s impossible without GCC and things.
fcdsl module for capi for linux support with Friz Card DSL.
I should assign this bug report to Daniel:

>(if it's more than just kernel) and I'll see what I can do.
You`ll need Capi/Capi 2.0 for the Card in the Kernel.
There is an ebuild for the fritz cards in portage already: net-dialup/fcpci
I guess this just needs to be added to the livecd environment. I really should
know how to do that, but I'll leave that up to the pros ;)
Is this still an issue?
zhen: please add net-dialup/fcpci to the .spec template for livecd-stage2 and resolve this bad boy... =]
last time I tried fcpci it did not compile ...
Well, fcpci doesn't compile for me, and neither does fcdsl.
Perhaps if the versions in portage were updated and marked stable, then we could fulfill this request, but I doubt that is going to happen for 2004.3 unless the net-dialup guys get them updated in the next week. Adding them to the CC list so maybe we can get this resolved.
Well, I added fcdsl and fcapi to the distfiles for the Universal LiveCD. Essentially, one would have to do a non-networked install and from there, they would have to build the packages from the distfiles on the CD to get access to the Internet. It's the best I can do for 2004.3 so long as the packages don't build.
Moving these so we can remove the "Install CD" component from "Gentoo Linux".
I apologize to everyone for this spam, but according to the bugzilla developers,
this is the only reasonable way to do this.
