Install Modem Error ! Help!
I want to install my Modem driver. it seems hard to make it.

I followed these steps



1. Unpack tar.gz package file:

        $ gzip -dc slmodem-2.9.X.tar.gz | tar xf -

2. 'cd' to package directory:

        $ cd slmodem-2.9.X

3. Review and edit 'Makefile' (if need):

  In many cases you will need to correct path to your local kernel
  source tree:


  Default KERNEL_DIR is '/lib/modules/<kerne-version>/build'. Many Linux
  Distributions use directory '/usr/src/linux-<version>' also.

  Note: If you are using Linux kernel 2.4, only header files should be
        available for build in $(KERNEL_DIR)/include

  Another way to pass right value KERNEL_DIR is to use command line
  parameter while running 'make':

        $ make KERNEL_DIR=/path/to/linux ...

4. Run 'make' command to compile package:

        $ make

5. Install. As 'root' user run:

        # make install

  It will install:

  - application 'slmodemd' under '/usr/sbin' directory

  - hardware specific drivers (kernel modules) 'slamr' and 'slusb'
    under conventional kernel modules directory

  - character device nodes '/dev/slamr0-3' with major number 212
    (for pci modems) and '/dev/slusb0-3' with major number 213
    (for usb modems).

  - config modules for autoloading (by editing file '/etc/modules.conf')
    (only with 2.4 kernels)

6. Config modem country.

  Use AT+GCI=<T.35 country code> command to setup country.

  Also you can setup default modem country by passing command line
  parameter '--country=MY_COUNTRY' to program 'slmodemd'.

  See output of 'slmodemd --countrylist' for a list of supported
  country names and T.35 country codes (see also 'slmodemd --help').

  Note: Command ATI7 shows currently installed country setting.

8. Uninstallation.

  In package directory just type:

        # make uninstall
