    The usb Huawei modem should be detected in automatic. If it doesn't look at the boot log if it is detected correctly as a modem or if it is seen as a usb-key mass storage device.
    How did you set it up in yast?

    Eventually you did not google so much after all......

    If you install usb_modeswitch, that will switch your device so it is seen as modem, instead of as a storage device

    if you read the post by sakis from Athens, post #2

    http://www.draisberghof.de/usb_modes...opic.php?t=284

    he gives detailed instructions of how to install this small programme

    he talks of 1.0.6 whereas the latest is 1.0.7 but either should work well for you;

    if you copy and paste the commands, line by line, as he gives them, it should work but edit the 1.0.6 to 1.0.7 if you wish

    where he says

    sudo
    you should enter

    su
    and enter your root password

    [I]not sure if i,m doing it right, can put my root passwords after all,what does sudo mean and how to have passwords beside that
    Code:
    sudo
    comes from the abbreviation: switchuser do. If you come from the windows world you would say it is the equivalent of the Windows command "run as".

    Usually sudo will be used to run things at superuser. In a terminal (that is the blackboard like windows, also called Konsole) you can achieve the same by typing:
    Code:
    su -
    (su - (don't forget the minus, as it makes a difference, changing environment into root). If you do not understand this sentence, you may use the search of this forum with "su" and you will find a good explanation). Since you want to work as a superuser, you will be asked the root password. This is normal.

    A short explanation on the command sudo you will find HERE.
    An even more complete information about sudo you can find on the project page.

    And as I am still on time: here you have a link for the su - problematic. So you do not even have to search the forum:
    LINK about the difference of su and su -

    in post #7 my good friend you gave us outputs;

    but no-one asked for those;

    ........... I can't even see your device listed there ...

    I believe your device needs to be "flipped" or "switched";

    Did you follow the advice in the post about how to install usb_modeswitch?
