slmodem slamr.ko modprobe error put_device get_device device_release_driver

I am trying to get the slmodem driver to work on a Toshiba Satellite A10-S100 laptop on ubuntu 5.10 Breezy Badger kernel 2.6.12-10-386

I successfuly compiled the 2.9.10 version, ran modprobe slamr, and recieved an error:

FATAL: Error inserting slamr (/lib/modules/2.6.12-10-386/extra/slamr.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
dmesg|grep slamr gave (:

slamr: Unknown symbol get_device
slamr: Unknown symbol put_device
slamr: Unknown symbol device_release_driver
I tried it with the ungrab-winmodem module, which compiled and inserted flawlessly, and recieved the same error, and an identical addition to dmesg.

version 2.9.9e-pre1, with or with ungrab-winmodem, gave exactly the same errors.

Is there a patch or something I can apply (preferably to the driver source as I would prefer not to recompile my kernel, though I would if I had to)?

Is there a configuration option to set/unset in the kernel source and recompile? (see above)

Any help appreciated

Well, the slamr driver is not the one you use if you can help it - you use the alsa AC97 codec driver with the slmodem daemon instead. In ubuntu you go: apt-get smartlink-modem-daemon (I think). This sets up the linuxant modem automatically.
