Problems compiling "martian-full" for Agere modem with Fedora 16
I had no trouble compiling the drivers - "martian" - for Agere Systems LT WinModem with Fedora 14 but run into problems with Fedora 16 kernel. I can't find a more recent version of "martian-full", the tgz package to compile the driver "martian-dev" and the program "martian_modem". The latest I can find is martian-full-20100123. Does anyboy know where I can find a more recent version or has development stopped? Or can anybody suggest a hack to make it compile with kernel 3.1.0-7.fc16.i686.PAE ? Thanks ahead of time.

Okay I got this to compile by editing the Makefile. I can't say I hacked it because I'm not a programmer. See the attached files, one the original Makefile and the other the edited one. I then ran

make all
, which went well then

make install
. I did

modprobe martian_dev

martian_modem --daemon
both of which loaded and produced the device /dev/ttySM0. Running

then and I'm good to go. Hope this helps somebody. Peace!
