Question Can't install modem driver


Hi. I'm using Fedora Core 2 and I'm trying to install the driver for the Neto Dragon 56k voice modem. I'm using the slmdm-2.7.10 driver which works fine on SuSE 9.0. The problem is when I try to compile I get a lot of errors on FC2. The Readme says I must set the right path to the kernel headers, so I tried /lib/modules/<kernel_version>/build, /lib/modules/<kernel_version>, /usr/src/linux/include and /usr/src/linux, but I get no results.
I also tried to install the slmodem-2.9.10 and the slmodem-2.9.10_netodragon (which is a modified version of the previous one, I think) and all the compilation process goes fine and apparently installs fine, but doesn't create all the necessary entries on /dev. It creates /dev/slamr0-3 and /dev/slusb0-3 entries, but doesn't create /dev/ttySL0 whcih is supposed to be a link to some entry number on /dev/pts. Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance.

post the errors.
it might b anything as simple as a missing dependancy.

or maybe an incorrect kernel version.. fedora core 3 uses 2.6, i think suse9 used 2.4 did it not ???

ok, it's a long output of errors, but ends like this:

amrmo_init.c:413: aviso: data definition has no type or storage class
/usr/src/linux/include/linux/sched.h:205: error: storage size of `mmap_sem' isn't known
/usr/src/linux/include/linux/sched.h:479: error: storage size of `pending' isn't known
/usr/src/linux/include/linux/stat.h:68: error: storage size of `atime' isn't known
/usr/src/linux/include/linux/stat.h:69: error: storage size of `mtime' isn't known
/usr/src/linux/include/linux/stat.h:70: error: storage size of `ctime' isn't known
/usr/src/linux/include/linux/pci.h:471: error: storage size of `dev' isn't known
make: *** [amrmo_init.o] Error 1

I think the slmdm-2.7.10 does not support the 2.6 kernel, but the slmodem-2.9.10 does support it. What could be the problem??
