viking777 Posted September 2, 2008 Report Share Posted September 2, 2008 In every version of Mandriva that I have used (2008, 2008.1, 2009)I have run into the same problem with my Huawei e220 modem. When you first plug it in it is recognised and the light moves from 2 flashes/sec to 1 flash/sec which is its way of telling you that it has a network to which you can connect. However on each version, within about 60 seconds, this has changed back to 2 flashes/sec which means it has reset itself. This behaviour makes the modem completely unusable in any default install since 2008. Way back in 2008 I discovered the solution, and this is it. You go here: http://nocturno.nsk.pt/scriptpages You follow the top link which mentions the Huawei e220, you copy the file and add it to /usr/share/hal/fdi/preprobe/20thirdparty. Your modem will then work normally. If I were a Mandriva dev, firstly I would investigate why this simple piece of code is not in Mandriva by default and secondly I would send a heartfelt email of congratulation (maybe even a donation?) to the writer of this piece of code in recognition of his bailing out every version of Mandriva since he wrote the script.
