Just got Slack 9 in the mail from TuxCDs.com. First off: word of warning: kernel sources are NOT included when you buy through them. Bastiches.
I have a pct789 winmodem which would work with Slackware 8.1 with the pctel 0.9.6 driver available here: http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/pctel-linux/
but now when I try to insert the modules it gives me a "these drivers have been compiled with version 2, and your kernel with version 3. This won't work" error. I've read that you can do insmod -f ptserial and insmod -f pctel but it's a dirty hack and might not work.
I'm not compiling with gcc 2.x as Slack 9 has gcc 3.x. Any clue how to get it to stop bitching and work? Alternative drivers for the pct789 chipset pci modem?
Oh, and another question: What do I need to add to modules.conf to have it autoload my soundcard driver at startup? es1371 driver
