Im a new user. I need to establish internet connection using E173 Huawei modem. I tried to install a driver with a program called Mobile Partner, but it doesn't recognize this modem. At the end it writes this: ' Install NDIS driver failed.The compiling environment is not all ready. Please check gcc, make and kernel buid(/lib/modules/3.2.0-52-generic/build) to be all installed? ' After many vain attempts I decided to install WINE from source in order to make the modem compatible with linux (im working in Bodhi from cd mode), typed in terminal everything it said and no success again. Without internet I cannot get Gparted, partition the hard drive and install Bodhi on the computer. Is there any simple way to either activate this modem in linux or to install Wine? Any step by step instructuion? I didnt know you have to complete a college to operate this OS.
