Installation of AVM Fritz Card with Intrepid failed

Asked by Jörg Pranger on 2008-09-26

I tried to install a Fritz Isdn Card on Intrepid, but the kernel module fcpci is missing in the restricted kernel package.
Also i can't use the mISDN drivers, because the required patches for the kernel are not installed.

Hi,

Please make sure to install all the following packages:

$ sudo aptitude search fritz

p avm-fritz-firmware - Firmware for AVM Fritz! ISDN hardware
p avm-fritz-firmware-2.6.17-6 - Firmware for AVM Fritz! ISDN hardware
p avm-fritz-firmware-2.6.24-16 - Firmware for AVM Fritz! ISDN hardware
p avm-fritz-firmware-2.6.24-18 - Firmware for AVM Fritz! ISDN hardware
p avm-fritz-firmware-2.6.24-19 - Firmware for AVM Fritz! ISDN hardware
p avm-fritz-kernel-source - AVM Fritz! binary kernel module source
p vdr-plugin-fritzbox - VDR plugin to access certain functions of an AVM Fritz!Box

Use the instructions below to compile and install avm-fritz-kernel-source. Replace yasm (from that forum) with avm-fritz-kernel-source.

Hope this is clear and that it helps.

If my instructions do not help, then you are experiencing the following bug in Intrepid Ibex:

Hi,

Please let me clarify what I just wrote:

Run the following commands using the Terminal:

sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude install avm-fritz-firmware

Retest your AVM Fritz Card.

If it still does not work, use the instructions below to compile and install avm-fritz-kernel-source. Replace yasm with avm-fritz-kernel-source when running the console commands.

Thanks Mark, but in my case, no fritz card means no internet means no aptitude. I'm back on Hardy after a long day of failures, I'm done with Intrepid already, I'll wait for the next release in 2009.
