Hey all, I think I left you all waiting long enough. Two days ago I created a new sakis3g build using the method described on it's wiki. I compiled in usb_modeswitch and the latest db into it and I even added a few South African providers. I also fixed the bug with ppp and made bash only a dependency and not an enforced requirement meaning you can still use ash as your /bin/sh and only need bash installed for sakis3g to work.
You may need (but is probably not required):
1. Install the sakis3g package by double clicking it. Leave out tar, bzlib and bzip2 for now.
2. Try running
sakis3g from sakura and if it gives you an error install tar, bzlib and bzip2 then.
3. Try running Applications---> Internet----> Sakis3g and see if it works.
Yes, left it mostly untested and my attempts on the usb_modeswitch forums has failed, so we're going to test it here on SliTaz. It works well enough that I'm currently connected with it, but I still need to test if bzip2 and tar is required or not.
