*** Please help this newbie expatriate XP user ***
I've had Hed Hat 2.4.20-8 i686 rel 9 installed on my machine with XP with no problems except my internal model (seen on COM port 3 in Windows) can't be connected to. I've DLd Linuxant s/ware from linuxant.com which seems to done something..... before installing this s/ware no modem appeared in the 'Installed Hardware' but now 'HSF modem etc.' appears in the hardware list and now when Linux first boots up an interesting error message comes up related to 'depmod' (as in printout). After much reading a fix pointed to using 'hsfconfig', and by using 'hsfconfig' I go the following results:
[root@localhost root]# hsfconfig
Conexant HSF softmodem driver, version 6.03.00lnxt04082400full
If you need license keys, assistance or more information, please go to:
When reporting a problem for the first time, please send
us the file generated by "hsfconfig --dumpdiag".

depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /usr/lib/hsfmodem/modules/binaries/linux-2.4.20-8/hsfosspec.o
My problem seems to be a misconfiguration but how to fix???
Any help would be appreciated.
