martian modem drivers on slackware 13-64 multilib


I used a fresh installation of slackware13_64 (used to test)and multilib packages installed
.Using the driver martian-full-20080625.tar.gz

An installation of Slackware 13-32 i copied the software martian_modem to /usr/sbin ( martian_modem not compile on 64-bit )

Without using the X!

root

#tar -zxvf martian-full-20080625.tar.gz
#cd martian-full-20080625
#make -C kmodule/ modules
#make -C kmodule/ install
#modprobe martian_dev

in /etc/rc.d/rc.local written
----------------------
martian_modem &
sleep 1
ln -sf /dev/ttySM0 /dev/modem
chmod 666 /dev/modem

------------------------

root

#/etc/rc.d/rc.local restart

also, to use kppp I did

#chmod u+s /usr/bin/kppp

Then so was surfing the net ... :-)

ps:
I think my procedure should be simplified so would be grateful if anyone let me know ....
Thanks

the program is written in 32 bit so you have compile in 32 bit and have all the 32 bit libraies
the driver can be built 64 bit but the Martian helper program was written for 32 bit. this means you must be in 32 bit environment to use it for a 64 bit hardware so you are were I am.

the driver can only be loaded with 32 bit inviroment

Please
Is there any possibility of it being done to come to an environment of 64-bit?
