intel536ep modem


I am trying to build the modem
driver (4.71) for 536ep intel
chipset on suse 10.1 as well as
on fedora core 5.

In fc5, I am getting the following
error during the build process:

make[2]: Entering directory /home/Intel-536/coredrv/coredrv.c:587: error: ‘struct tty_struct’ has no member named ‘flip’
/home/Intel-536/coredrv/coredrv.c:592: error: ‘struct tty_struct’ has no member named ‘flip’
/home/Intel-536/coredrv/coredrv.c:593: error: ‘struct tty_struct’ has no member named ‘flip’

/home/Intel-536/coredrv/coredrv.c:596: error: ‘struct tty_struct’ has no member named ‘flip’
/home/Intel-536/coredrv/coredrv.c:597: error: ‘struct tty_struct’ has no member named ‘flip’
make[3]: *** [/home/Intel-536/coredrv/coredrv.o] Error 1
make[2]: *** [_module_/home/Intel-536/coredrv] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.16-1.2122_FC5-i686'
make[1]: *** [536core_26] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/Intel-536/coredrv'
Failed to build driver

Here, I have condensed the output
to the error lines.

Any ideas?

Also, the same driver (4.71) builds
and installs fine on centos 4 (

But, the modem query on kpp hangs
the system with the caps/scroll locks
light blinking.

And, in suse 10.1, the driver fails
during the build.

Please note that this driver worked
fine on fc3 and suse 9.3 professional.

I don't understand why all you folks with these Winmodems keep trying to get them to work. Everytime you change distros or kernels or update your system to a newer version youre going to have to go and find a driver. Why not make it easy on yourself and just get a real external modem on ebay. They cost about 10.00 to $20.00 and they will work with everything you can throw at it. No matter which distro not matter which kernel they just work

RE: Anyone and all..

I currently have the MD1724T-11VC-B Intel Modem (536EP version.) Could anyone explain again if the modem has a comnpatible driver for 2.2.14 Linux kernel.

Planning to upgrade soon enough, but not at this time. Working on how to get online from home through, but currently having some difficulty with the internal modem from Intel Corp. It seems to state it works with 2.2.16-2.2.18, and they even have the driver for 2.4.17.

Please help if you can through email at, or post your message here.
