long time ago I installed SuSE 7.1.
As well a winmodem, that worked well. - unfortunately I don' kn ow any more how I did it :-(
After a diskcrash I'm on my way to rebuild the system.
What I know is :
1. install SuSE 7.1
2. cp /boot/vmlinuz24.version.h /usr/src/linux/include/linux/version.h
3. cp /boot/vmlinuz24.autoconf.h usr/src/linux/include/linux/autoconf.h
4. compile module : rpm --rebuild module_2.4.0.src.rpm
5. install module : rpm -i module_2.4.0.i386.rpm
6. load module ./load_module
7. configure modem with yast2

now every thin goes right until point 5.
If I load the module I get the respond from the system the module is for kernel 2.4.0 and actual kernel is 2.4.0-4GB
Is any bod able to tell me how I got the modem to work last yaer ??

best regards

I can't say I do know exactly how SuSE likes things or anything about YAST2 but I am sure that if you go here:
Then you will have a good starting point.
