Hi all!

After hours of installing and compiling I have a running gentoo now! My favourite apps are emerged, but the next big issue is the modem. I need it badly.
I did this:
emerge hcfusbmodem-0.99

And I got that:
Calculating dependencies
!!! Problem in net-dialup/hcfusbmodem-0.99 dependencies.
!!! "Specific key requires an operator (net-dialup/hcfusbmodem-0.99) (try adding an '=')"

What does that mean? What´s wrong?
Let´s say it will work, what do you recommend to get a ppp-connection? X is installed, but not that important for now. I´ll try it later. Thus I need a console-via-modem-connection-app.
Thanks for all feedbacks!
Regards,
h.

The problem is you need to give emerge the full name of the package because hcfusbmodem is currently masked.
Actually it's hard masked - which probably means the package doesn't compile correctly on ppc hardware anyway.

I forced it to emerge with
Code:
emerge /usr/portage/net-dialup/hcfusbmodem/hcfusbmodem-0.99.03042703.ebuild

and edited the hcfusbconfig script to get it to start compiling the hcfusbserial kernel module but this still failed.

I've now downloaded the source tar from http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hcf/full/archive/hcfusbmodem-1.01lnxt04031300ppcfull.tar.gz
so I'm going to work from that...

Hi!

Sounds not very promising. However thank you for your reply. I´ll fetch that tarball too and see what happens. At best we can help each other ;)

Cheers,
h.
