unable to install kmod-usb-net-qmi-wwan



  • Hi,

    I have a SIM7500A module connected to my Omega2+ via usb, but I am not sure how to get it connected as a network device

    When connected, I get the following devices...

    crw------- 1 root root 188, 0 Jul 6 18:36 ttyUSB0
    crw------- 1 root root 188, 1 Jul 6 18:36 ttyUSB1
    crw------- 1 root root 188, 2 Jul 6 18:36 ttyUSB2
    crw------- 1 root root 188, 3 Jul 6 18:36 ttyUSB3
    crw------- 1 root root 188, 4 Jul 6 18:36 ttyUSB4

    And dmesg shows ...

    [ 143.975197] option 1-1:1.0: GSM modem (1-port) converter detected
    [ 143.981885] usb 1-1: GSM modem (1-port) converter now attached to ttyUSB0
    [ 143.990144] option 1-1:1.1: GSM modem (1-port) converter detected

    [ 144.019909] option 1-1:1.3: GSM modem (1-port) converter detected
    [ 144.026460] usb 1-1: GSM modem (1-port) converter now attached to ttyUSB3
    [ 144.034713] option 1-1:1.4: GSM modem (1-port) converter detected
    [ 144.041326] usb 1-1: GSM modem (1-port) converter now attached to ttyUSB4

    It looks like this modem supports QMI ( 1e0e:9001 is listed on this page http://cateee.net/lkddb/web-lkddb/USB_NET_QMI_WWAN.html ).

    comgt also finds the modem and identifies it correctly.

    I tried to install kmod-usb-net-qmi-wwan

    Collected errors:

    • satisfy_dependencies_for: Cannot satisfy the following dependencies for kmod-usb-net-qmi-wwan:
    • kernel (= 4.4.46-1-70b845231417daffde6a00b449f89556) * kernel (= 4.4.46-1-70b845231417daffde6a00b449f89556) * kernel (= 4.4.46-1-70b845231417daffde6a00b449f89556) * kernel (= 4.4.46-1-70b845231417daffde6a00b449f89556) *
    • opkg_install_cmd: Cannot install package kmod-usb-net-qmi-wwan.

    When I connect this modem to my PC, my modem manager software pops up, starts the modem and it all works fine.

    How can I get the Omega2+ to use the SIM7500A as its primary network connection?
