Got iBurst yesterday, along with a USB modem. The salesperson assured me that the modem works under Linux. Well, chalk one up to the forces of sales and marketing, because the modem definitely did not work, and the enclosed CD definitely did not have drivers for Linux. I downloaded the open source drivers (ibdriver-1.3.5) from sourceforge, but the compilation failed.
So, having “fixed” the compilation problems by means of removing the pcmcia functionality, I offer the updated drivers to the world. This iBurst USB modem driver will work under Ubuntu, Debian, Mint, Redhat, CentOS, slackware or anything else that has a linux kernel 2.6 and above (including kernel 3.0). Download it here (choose your kernel).
Note that this is self-extracting script, so before running it make sure that it has execute permissions set. Please let me know if this does not work by emailing me the output of the executable. If it does work, then you can thank me in your will (of course, if you don’t own much, then just leave a comment here thanking me:)
