Why do you need Sakis3G? I did just usb-modeswitch + pppd (pon provider). Huawei E352

If I understand correctly, Sakis3G is simply a shell script that does just that. However, the benefit of the Sakis3G script is that it is interactive and easy to use for beginners.
There are a lot of info out there but not many examples are written so that beginners can easily follow (perhaps I've missed them). If you would like to add a nice step-by-step for setting up a 3G modem without the sakis3G script, it would be nice :-)

When I try to run sakis3g, I get this message:
Unable to locate dependency "getent". Script will now abort.
The getent command is not available on the BeagleBone, but it is on my PC. Does anyone know how I can install this in Ångström?

Yep, I solved it. It was quite a while ago though and I'm no longer sure of the exact steps. However, I believe it had something to do with installing a package called glibc to provide getent.
However, I didn't end up using Sakis3G because the 3G modem was used in a commerical embedded application and had to be automated. If you wan't the same kind of automation it is fairly easy to set up pppd with a chatscript to control the modem. There are various guides on the web to be found about this.
