Module Build Fails (Mandriva 2006)
 
Hello forum,

I am having trouble installing a modem driver (Conexant HCF controllerless PCI modem driver, version 1.05full) in Mandriva Linux 2006.

When executed, Mandriva says it can't find any pre-built modules so it tries to build them. But the build fails with the following message from the buildlog.txt:




(cd /lib/modules/2.6.12-12mdksmp/build && make "CNXT_KERNELSRC=/lib/modules/2.6.12-12mdksmp/build" "M=/usr/lib/hcfpcimodem/modules" clean)

Is this enough information to tell me what is wrong? Do I have to install something else first for the build to be successful?

This very same modem driver installed successfully with Mandriva 10.1 and it worked great. But I can't get it to work yet with Mandriva 2006.

Your help would be most appreciated,

Problem Solved
 
Hello again forum,

I fixed my problem. I downloaded the latest generic rpm for my modem from the Linuxant web site and it compiled perfectly. I was even able to use my same license key and registration that I was using for the older version rpm. Now I am able to get online with Mandriva Linux 2006.
