Can't 'make' modem driver...


I cant 'make' my SmartLink driver... I am running 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 kernel and I keep getting errors when I try to 'make' the driver.

This is all I get:

make -C modem all
make [1]: Entering directory '/usr/src/slmodem-2.9.10/modem'
rebuild profile...
gcc -Wall -g -O-I -DCONFIG_DEBUG_MODEM -o modem_main.o-c modem_main.c
gcc -Wall -g -O-I -DCONFIG_DEBUG_MODEM -o modem_cmdline.o -c modem_cmdline.cgcc
-Wall -g -O-I -DCONFIG_DEBUG_MODEM -o modem.o -c modem.c
modem.c: In function 'modem_reset':
modem.c:1701: error: invalid storage class for function 'sregs_init'
modem.c:1713: warning: implicit declaration of function 'sregs_init'
modem.c: At top level:
modem.c:1727: error: static declaration of 'sregs_init' follows non-static declaration
modem.c:1713: error: pervious implicit declaration of 'sregs_init' was here
make [1] *** [modem.o] Error 1
make [1]: leaving directory '/usr/src/slmodem-2.9.10/modem'
make: *** [modem] Error 2

Any Suggestions?

This version seeems to be incompatible with your kernel. Try using a different version.

The problem is not with linux, but with gcc 4.0.0.
Look at "Forward Declaration of Static Functions" at
http://developer.apple.com/releaseno...tingToGCC.html

See attached patch for modem.c - it compiles okay after applying this patch.

In case you haven't solved your problem yet, you must use the slmodem-2.9.9e-pre1.tar.gz package. It compiles cleanly with gcc-4. You'll also need the ungrab-winmodem module to make the driver work with your kernel (new kernels don't accept proprietary drivers, so you will need this module to make the driver work). You can find both the driver and the ungrab-winmodem module here . Note that you must load the wingrab-winmodem module before loading the slamr module.

I took a look at the gcc 4.0.0... and well it seems to be over my head... Is there any way you could make it a little easier? I would appreciate it...

I will try to install the ungrab winmodem and let you know... Thanks...

The ungrab-winmodem module is not to compile the driver it's just to prevent problems with new 2.6.x kernels. Use the slmodem-2.9.9e-pre1 , it compiles without problems with gcc-4, but you will need the ungrab-winmodem module to make it compatible with your kernel. If you don't have luck with this option, you can try the alsa-driver which doesn't need the ungrab-winmodem module but I'm not sure how it works (I didn't have luck with it). Anyway, in the link I provided in my previous post are all the slmodem drivers released by linmodems; you can try with them, but try the newer ones to avoid problems with gcc-4. I hope this helps you.

I got an e-mail back from Sasha, the author of the smartlink driver, and she said that my issues have to do with my 64 bit processor... Something about how her driver is incompatible with my processor... I donno.... What do you think?

Hmm, sorry if I can't help you there, I know nothing about 64 bit processors. Didn't Sasha tell you how to make it work??

Unfortunately... No... She is also unfamiliar with 64 bit processors... She did say that it could be done though...
