i recently decided to do something many will call me stupid for, i switched my very nice slackware to redhat 9.
on my slack i had my modem which is truly special, you need to kick it with lots of special drivers to make it work (adsl modem).
but it worked, and pretty nicely, but then i said, well, if i got my modem working on one linux, why wouldn't it work on the other.
and here it comes: on redhat, there's no hdcl support by default in the kernel.
now i tried some HOWTO's but i still ended with nothing.
here's some more details:
i got RH9 kernel 2.4.20-8
i installed the kernel source, tried to make it work as a module (found it in the make menuconfig) but i really dunno all the steps and the HOWTO's left me midways.
please walk me though how to add the hdcl support as a module (or as kernel native) just, give me all the steps please.
the only error my modem drivers give me:
warning: n_hdlc support not found in kernel config
nice: pppd: No such file or directory
failed to connect
and i didn't get this on my slack.
