This is driving me nuts because i had this modem working with the same driver on a different hard drive,everything else is the same.I changed the drive out,fresh install of mandrake 10 and now i cant get the modem going to save my life!!

i found this on a site somewhere concerning my problem
Quote:
as root, open the file /usr/src/linux/include/linux/version.h with a text editor like kwrite, and change the first line from
#include <linux/rhconfig.h>
to
#include "rhconfig.h"
save the changes, and run the ./setup command again. This time it will work.
Unfortunatly it didnt work for me..

I FIGURED IT OUT!!!

The F.A.Q. "fix" is almost right..it says to change
#include <linux/rhconfig.h>
to
#include "rhconfig.h"

but that doesnt work...here's what did,change
#include <linux/rhconfig.h>
to
#include </usr/src/linux/include/linux/rhconfig.h>
and Presto!! Linux is online!!

Congratulations!
(did you adapt the pctel or slmdm driver?)

Tip next time:
* really use Google and Google-groups much more than you did now....
* search on the Linux sites & forurms. Generally they are very good.
* ...
So many people have post there experiences. Although the complete answer might not always be there it will help you further. the problems that are left: post them on the best Linux site related to the problem. You will get the best respons.
