blackberry modem… update

May. 13, 2008

so to make the process even easier for connecting to the internet, using a blackberry as the GPRS modem, on slackware, i put together the packages needed for wvdial.

after initially attempting pppd, and going with wvdial on my openSuSE work laptop, i thought i would tough it out on my personal slackware laptop, and try to work out the needed chat scripts.


so the SlackBuilds are wvdial and wvstreams, these are also served on subversion, so you can ‘svn co’ their URL.

this makes it much more easy to connect, at least with Sprint it does.
