Configuring MODEM in Fedora 8


I have Gigabyte soft56K Modem. i want to configure it on fedora 8 but i am unable to do so. Whenever i run the command hsfconfig i get the following message
Linux HSF softmodem drivers, version 4.06.06.02
grep /proc/Ksyms: Nosuch file or directory
/usr/bin/hsfsysid: line 99 [: too many arguments
HSF drivers currently do not support SMP(symmetric Multiprocessing) Kernels

First, ensure that the proper kernel kernel source and compiler packages from your distribution vendor and/or community are installed
The Linux kernel can then be configured by running "make menuconfig" under the kernel source directory (usually /usr/src/Linux)

verify that the proper options for your system are selected and the CONFIG_SMP ("Symmetric multiprocessing support" under "processor type and features" is disabled as this driver is presently designed to work on single processor machines.
Then compile and istal your new kernel( for more information about this procedure, see readme file under the kernel source directory) reboot the system using the new kernel and re-run "hsfconfig"

Plz tell me how to solve this problem
Thanks!

The error message tells you how to solve the problem:

Did you follow those steps? Got your kernel source installed? Did you run the "make menuconfig"? Running on the new kernel?

Also, Fedora 8 is old...Fedora 10 is the latest, and may support what you're trying to do, right out of the box. I'd suggest upgrading first.

Sir
I run hsfconfig --kernel command but i got message that you first run hsfconfig --hwtype command. Then i run hsfconfig --hwtype command, it automatically configured the hardware. After that i again run the command hsfconfig --kernel command but again i got the same error message, that no kernel found ...

So now tell me how to solve this problem

Thanks

You should have installed kernel-devel or kernel header or kernel source. Try installing from pirut.

I did...you didn't follow the steps. You need to install the kernel-development source code, before you can proceed, which is why it's failing. Also, did you read the comment about upgrading to Fedora 10, which may solve your problem, without doing ANYTHING???

Sir!
infact my main problem is that i want to install ns2 allinone package 2.33 version. I have come to know that it work well on fedora 8. but when i try to install it it gives me the following error..
Build XGraph-12.1
============================================================
loading cache ./config.cache
checking for a BSD compatible install… /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane… yes
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}… yes
checking for working aclocal… missing
checking for working autoconf… missing
checking for working automake… missing
checking for working autoheader… missing
checking for working makeinfo… missing
checking if malloc debugging is wanted… no
checking for gcc… no
checking for cc… no
configure: error: no acceptable cc found in $PATH
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.

So i tried the following commands

yum install autoconf
yum install automake
yum install gcc-c++
yum install libX11-devel
yum install xorg-x11-proto-devel
yum install libXt-devel
yum install libXmu-devel
But i need to connect to internet for the above commands. As i mentioned earlier, that i tried to configure kernel through hsfconfig --kernel command, but it gave me error. Since i am a novice user of Linux, so kindly specify how to install kernel development source code.
Thanks!

As my previous post suggesting install via Pirut, if you have Install Media (Fedora 8 DVD). As root type pirut, go to search tab, type, for example, kernel-devel and select kernel-devel by clicking and apply, you might be given prompt for dependencies. click continue to continue installing.
