Here's the rundown. I recently installed kernel 126.96.36.199 over the RedHat Linux 7.3 default kernel (2.4.18). I installed the latest version of modutils. I then downloaded rusty's module-init-tools, even ran a "make moveold" for 2.4 compatibility. Everything installed great. My 2.6 kernel modules (serial drivers, ethernet drivers, etc) insert into the kernel with no trouble at all. But, I'm trying to install Conexant modem drivers (provided by Linuxant). Linuxant's script checks some things, downloads the proper package, builds it, and then ATTEMPTS to install it. Toward the end of the installation, it fails saying:
ERROR: hcfpci driver not active
error: execution of %post scriptlet from hcfpcimodem-1.03full-1 failed, exit status 1
On my 2.4, the installation finished and the modem worked perfectly. But as you can see, I am having problems. I check the file extension for the modules, it is the ".ko" file extension which is, as I understand, a 2.6 kernel extension for modules. I have looked for answers many places. Unfortunately, there's not a whole lot of Linuxant driver gurus out there.
This sucks though. Any suggestions would be helpful for sure. Thanks.
