Aircard 775 not supported in SUSE linux 10
I recently aquired a Sierra Aircard 775, which we wanted to use under Novell SUSE 10.0 on an Intel Pentium laptop. We could not find any documentation on how to do this. Although Sierra does not support Linux, they do have a document on how to configure the Aircard 710/750 under older versions Linux using cardmgr. As far as we can tell, the 775 is compatible with the 710/750. SUSE 10 now uses hotplug/udev. We managed to figure out how to configure this, and decided to document the findings in the hope that it might be useful to someone else. This was done on a 2.6.13-15-default kernel, on the MTN South Africa network, but should be equally applicable elsewhere. It worked for us, but we can't guarantee that it would work for anyone else.
