intel-536EPmodem in suse linux


Hi , I recently installed Suse Linux 9.1.It rocks but i have one problem.I am having a problem installing the driver for my stupid winmodem.I don't want to bu a new one yet as I hope to get broadband soon.
I followed the instructions as follows:
I entered the directory the driver is in. I did the make clean command but the following happens

linux:~ # cd /home/paul/intel-536EP-2.56.76.0-suse91-UP
linux:/home/paul/intel-536EP-2.56.76.0-suse91-UP # make clean /coredrv
cd coredrv; make clean
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/paul/intel-536EP-2.56.76.0-suse91-UP/coredrv'
rm -f *.ko *.o *~ core
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/paul/intel-536EP-2.56.76.0-suse91-UP/coredrv'
rm -f *.o *.ko
make: *** No rule to make target `/coredrv'. Stop.
linux:/home/paul/intel-536EP-2.56.76.0-suse91-UP #

The error is "no rule to make target".
The install stops then.
Can anyone help me?
Has anyone else got this modem to work with linux.

You have to install the Kernel Source code and possibly configure it.
Your Modem's drivers source code cannot locate the header files it needs



The Kernel source might be on your distro cd (assuming thats where you installed Linux from).

If the source is not on cd; this website will explain how to do better than I

I'm very new to linux but I finally got some good advice on installing my 536ep modem in suse 9.1. See the link to my thread above^. Turns out I had to move it to my home directory (...home\username\); then all installed fine!

Also, I installed this file from the intel driver download site:
intel-536ep-4.69-suse91-smp.tgz

good luck

Now im having the same problem in mandrake as I had with Suse.When installing the driver I followed the instructions as follows. I extracted the file intel-536ep-4.69-mdk10-smp.tgz to my home directory /home/username. Then I typed make clean this happened:
[root@localhost intel-536EP-2.56.76.0-mdk10-SMP]# make clean
cd coredrv; make clean
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/paul/intel-536EP-2.56.76.0-mdk10-SMP/coredrv'
rm -f *.ko *.o *~ core
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/paul/intel-536EP-2.56.76.0-mdk10-SMP/coredrv'
rm -f *.o *.ko
everything ok so far but then i typed make 536 as instructed and then :

[root@localhost intel-536EP-2.56.76.0-mdk10-SMP]# make 536
Module precompile check
Current running kernel is: 2.6.3-7mdk
/lib/modules... autoconf.h does not exist
please install kernel source
make: *** [check] Error 1

As far as I understand the kernal source I am using is 2.6.
This source is already installed.

Newbie question. There is a source on the distro cd 2.4 which should i have running?
Has anyone else got this modem(intel536ep)to work with mandrake 10.0?

Any help is very welcome
