Re: Install Vodafone Mobile Connect Card

Which python packages are missing in Arch? Have you searched the AUR as well as the official repos?

Re: Install Vodafone Mobile Connect Card

You don't need that driver to make a connection.

Most settings the card needs are setup when you use it the first time in windows.

I've setup Kppp to use my vodafone novatel merlin U630 for more than a year now on 2 laptops, both running arch.

see here : http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=20350

This link http://mybroadband.co.za/vb/showthread.php?t=21726 is to a thread on a south-african forum where you can find lots of info about getting vodafone mobile connect cards to work on linux.


Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Re: Install Vodafone Mobile Connect Card

HI there.. I need this package (or something similar, let me know) to manage my 3G connection with my Asus eeepc 901go netbook.. I installed this package from AUR but i get (finally, after the osname chage tip) the following error:

vmc.contrib.axiom.errors.SQLError: <SQLError: 'CREATE TABLE main.axiom_attributes ( type_id INTEGER, row_offset INTEGER, indexed BOOLEAN, sqltype VARCHAR, allow_none BOOLEAN, pythontype VARCHAR, attribute VARCHAR, docstring TEXT )'(()) caused <class 'sqlite3.OperationalError'>: near "indexed": syntax error>

Re: Install Vodafone Mobile Connect Card

Ok.. I think that installing a "orphan" package from aur will not help..

I tried to install the latest snapshot from the vodafone-mccd site, and run the .run latest snapshot

Something strange happen with my python interpreter, it hangs up wwith this error:

ImportError: /opt/vmc/lib/python/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gobject/_gobject.so: undefined symbol: PyUnicodeUCS4_FromObject

what can I do?

Re: Install Vodafone Mobile Connect Card

I think that this apps in compiled with a system with a ucs4 unicode support, while archlinux python interpreter has ucs2 suport only.... So i can't execute this app!
