Smile Error installing linuxant modem driver


hi,
i want to install the linuxant modem driver,while runnig hsfconfig this
is the error message:
This package does not contain pre-built modules suitable for your system:
Distribution: Mandrake-10.0
Kernel arch: i686-SMP
Kernel version: linux-2.6.3-4mdksecure

Trying to automatically re-compile the modules..
(this requires a C compiler and proper kernel sources to be installed)

Where is the linux source build directory that matches your running kernel?
[/lib/modules/2.6.3-4mdksecure/build] /lib/modules/2.6.3-4mdksecure/build

WARNING: missing file llib/modules/2.6.3-4mdksecure/build/include/linux/modversions.h
The cause of this problem is usually a missing or misconfigured
kernel source tree (and sometimes an incorrect directory or symbolic link).

First, ensure that the proper kernel source and compiler packages
from your distribution vendor and/or the community are installed.

The Linux kernel can then be reconfigured by running "make menuconfig"
under the kernel source directory (usually /usr/src/linux).

Verify that the proper options for your system are selected,
and that CONFIG_SMP ("Symmetric multi-processing support" under
"Processor type and features") is disabled, as this driver is
presently designed to work on single-processor machines.

Then compile and install your new kernel (for more information about
this procedure, see the README file under the kernel source directory),
reboot the system using the new kernel, and re-run "hsfconfig".

The kernel source directory is in "/usr/src/linux-2.6.3-4mdk" but really
the file "modeversions.h" are missing in the "/linux-2.6.3-4mdk/include
/linux/"and the symblic link "build" in /lib/modules/2.6.3-4mdk is
is to the correct directory of kernel source.The CONFIG_SMP is set to "NO"
plz help me what can i do to solve the problem.

linux-2.6.3-4mdksecure is what you list as the kernel. is that the source that you have? Or do you have linux-2.6.3-4mdk? They have to match.

are you sure they have support for 2.6 kernel. that file u mentioned
build/include/linux/modversions.h
I think thats a 2.4 file and not there in 2.6.

u might wanna check with linuxant if they support the latest 2.6 kernel. if u bought the driver that is. :-)

Unhappy Mandrake 10, smp with linuxant modem

I have a similar problem,

I'm trying to install the linuxant driver: hsfmodem-6.03.00lnxt04061800full.tar.gz, for custom kernels.
It starts installing but a the end I get an error saying that the device was not ready.
I can get it to work with 2.6 kernel, but I need it with a compilation of kernel 2.6.3-smp.
Is there a configuration file or somewhere where I can switch a value, or I just have to wait until Linuxant delivers compatible drivers ?
I' working on a:
Intel Pentium 4 with Hyper-threading 2.8GH Processor

hi,
the 'device was busy i think it means the modem is busy with other installed driver so that should be removerd first,for installation of the hsflinmodem driver the kernel source should be in /usr/src.
let me konw if the hsfmodem-6.03.00lnxt04061800full.tar.gz is a full 56kbp or just 14kbp? and if you can gave us the url to download it.

After a succesfull compilation, this is the exact error I get: "ERROR: hsf driver not active"
I have my sources in /usr/src/linux-2.6.3-7mdk
The driver, I got it from linuxant
http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf/...800full.tar.gz
It's only the limited (14kbps) version

I think it has to do with the 2.6.3-7mdk-p3-smp-64G kernel I'm running, because I can get it to work with kernel 2.6.3-7mdk, but I want to take advantage of the Hyper-threading feature of my procesor.

If you're running a different kernel than the source you're compiling against, you'll likely never get it to work. Why don't you download the source that matches your kernel. For that matter, you can do the same thing with the source you have. There is no special "hyperthreading" kernel. Its just one with the optimizations turned on. So, you have two options: download the source for 2.6.3-7mdk-p3-smp-64G (Mandrake supplies kernel-sources for almost all of their precompiled kernels) and compile your modem driver against it, or compile a new kernel against the sources you have and then your modem and kernel will be coming from the same "factory".

Ok, so I tried to find the sources of the 2.6.3-7mdk-p3-smp-64G kernel, I have them in my /lib/modules/2.6.3-7mdk-p3-smp-64G kernel, its the same as 2.6.3-7mdk
This is what I get:

[root@video paul]# hsfconfig
Conexant HSF softmodem driver, version 6.03.00lnxt04061800full

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".

Trying to automatically build the driver modules...
(this requires a C compiler and proper kernel sources to be installed)

Where is the linux source build directory that matches your running kernel?

ERROR: hsf driver not active

Can I set the modem drivers, or what can I do??

hi,
i think this error means that the modem is not set to it's proper communication port,possibally /dev/modem or whatever the modems commuincaion port is,one can check
it from kppp ->Configure ->Modem -> Query Modem.if the response of Query Modem is "Modem is busy " or "Unable to open modem", it means the modem is not confgured to it's
proper communiction port,othewise the response is "Modem is Ready" and there is a progress one can see a chart.In the kppp ->Configure ->Device tab we can configure the modem to it's proper port.

I've already checked with lsmod without any luck, I don't see in the list anything related to the hsf driver.
What else can it be!!??
