how to install Intel 536EP Modem under kernel 2.6.x???


my modem is Intel Corp. 536EP Data Fax Modem,and i downloaded the latest driver from intel official site.But the ReadME says "This release is not compatible with kernels prior to 2.4."
indeed,the driver can't be compiled under my kernel 2.6.5.
HOW to solve this?i am racking my brain!
thx a lot!!!

It seems that drivers are expected some time this month:

For Mandrake 10.0, the solution is temporarily to use the 2.4.25 kernel.

Hey 'smilingmessiah' and others!

I have found an Intel 536ep driver here:

http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/pack...-2.56.76.0.tgz

It should work for Kernel 2.6, although I did not check it yet myself. I have a Red Hat 9.0 with Kernel 2.4.2. So if you can check it out before I upgrade my kernel (will probably install Mandrake 10.0), let me know whether it is working or not.

Oops!

I never found out actually... my broadband account went up the next day, so I never tried it.

Fancy giving it a go yourself and letting us know how it handles?

It's not working

I have a mdk 10.1 and I think I've tried every driver that I found.
The one at Intel, that is told to cover both 2.4.x and 2.6.x kernels worked fine on mdk10.0 cause I only use it for transmitting faxes, no dial up..
Nothing is working...this is what it says:
