installing linuxant drivers for modem--where are the C-compiler?


hi,

does anyone know how to install the modem drives for the connexant modem in inspiron 1100?

this is the info for it:
00:1f.6 Modem: Intel Corp. 82801DB AC'97 Modem Controller (rev 02) (prog-if 00 [Generic])
Subsystem: Conexant: Unknown device 5422
Flags: medium devsel, IRQ 11
I/O ports at c400 [size=256]
I/O ports at c080 [size=128]
Capabilities: [50] Power Management version 2

i went to www.linuxant.com and download hsfmodem-6.03.00lnxt04061800full-1.i386.rpm . i then double clicked on the file and installed it. if that's the wrong file, please provide appropriate link.


i have: 2.6.3-7mdk.

i then installed kppp. however, kppp doesn't detect the modem or it says it's busy. where have i gone wrong?

You need to point kppp to /dev/modem into 'device' tab.
if this doens't work, I'd recommend you to download the .tar.gz file which contains the driver's source code and it's easier to install.

Regards

i did as u suggested by downloading the source and compiling it. after, 'make install', i press hsfconfig to continue instatllation but it says:


If you need license keys, assistance or more information, please go to:
http://www.linuxant.com/

When reporting a problem for the first time, please send
us the file generated by "hsfconfig --dumpdiag".

No pre-built modules for: Mandrake-10.0 linux-2.6.3-7mdk i686

Trying to automatically build the driver modules...
(this requires a C compiler and proper kernel sources to be installed)
Please ensure that the kernel-headers or kernel-source package is installed.

Where is the linux source build directory that matches your running kernel?
[/usr/src/linux] hsfconfig

WARNING: missing file hsfconfig/include/linux/autoconf.h
The cause of this is usually a missing or unconfigured
kernel source tree (and sometimes an incorrect directory or symbolic link).



where is this source build? in installed mdk10 off the 3 downloadable isos. thanks.

Don't panic . You need a package called kernel-source-2.6.3-7mdk, you can find it on your instalation cds. In order to install it, run from console:

su <enter>
type your root password

Now type:
urpmi kernel-source

once installed, proceed back to the modem driver instalation, and now when asked about this:
Where is the linux source build directory that matches your running kernel?
[/usr/src/linux]


the answer:
/usr/src/linux

And the installation can continue. After it's over, you'd be able to configure kppp

Good luck!!

Ubuntu 9.04 internal modem problems

As many others, I also have problems in getting the modem to work.
Using "sudo hsfconfig" the system either misses "autoconf.h" or "string.h" files. Yet I can find these files in my system where hsfconfig seems to expect them. What must I do to get it done?
