Ubuntu Draper on Evo N610C



VPN


I could not get vpnc to work, so i used the cisco client (non free) that we own at my company.

To compile the cisco vpn client i apparently had to compile a kernel.
it seems headers + buildtools was not enough
I would get this error: scripts/mod/modpost: No such file or directory

Install kernel


apt-get install linux-kernel-dev linux-sources linux-headers build-essential

cd /usr/src/linux
#copying the default ubuntu config
cp /boot/config-2.6.15-25-38 .config
make menuconfig  
# just exit/save right away, config is ok already.

#on my machine ZD12111 would fail to compile, so edit .config and comment it out
#CONFIG_USB_ZD1211=N

make  


# will run for 1hour +

Install Cisco client


tar xzvf vpnclient-xxxx.tgz
cd vpnclient
./vpn_install
#start at boot -> yes


Install gvpndialer


This is a nice gui to the cisco vpn client (provides gnome icon etc ...)
Download gvpn-dialer: https:sourceforge.net/projects/gvpn-dialer/
get the rpm (we will use alien to convert it into a .deb)

sudo apt-get install alien
sudo alien gvpn-dialerxxx.rpm
sudo dpkg -i gvpndialer_1.1-2_i386.deb
#there is a missing libpcre.so.0 just linking it to .so.3 fixes it
cd /usr/lib
sudo ln -s libpcre.so.3 libpcre.so.0


start it.
edit preferences (set cisco client path and profile path)
create icon somewhere ('gksudo gvpndialer')


Wireless network



Getting the driver to work



My card (Airlink AWLC3025) was not working right, after long search i found that the acx driver was not working properly, and also it was conflicting with ndiswrapper, so i choose to disable the acx driver.

vi /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist
blaclist acx


then install the windows card driver
ndiswrapper -i /tmp/tnet1130.inf


unplug and then plug back the card, it then should work.

Setting the interfaces and using whereami


I switch back and forth from home(wireless) to (work) wired, with "whereami" i can configure bothe network and get it to switch automaticaly to whichever is detected

See infos about whereami here:

www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=24994&highlight=wireless+connect+automatically

apt-get install whereami


Here is my setup:
/etc/whereami/detect.conf
default wireless
testmii eth0 lan

if lan
	set INTERFACE eth0
	at wired
	notat down
fi


/etc/whereami/whereami.conf
+wired setresolver nameserver 199.249.215.3
+wired cp /etc/network/interfaces.work /etc/network/interfaces
+wired /etc/init.d/networking restart

System suspend/Hibernate


Hibernate works great out of the box

Suspend does not work, i never got it to work on this machine with any distro.
With ubuntu it goes to sleep, but can't be wake back up.

I give up on that, hibernate is good enough for me.
