module problem

i downloaded sm56-gcc3 modem driver from when i used redhat8 with kernel 2.4.18-14 it did not work it said some segmentation fault.but when i recompiled the same kernel with gcc2.96 the modem worked fine with that installation.the same thing when i did for RH 9 with kernel 2.4.20-8 it did not work.but when i recompiled the kernel with gcc2.96 it still did not says the same segmentation fault error.why is that happening.and what could be the reason and what could be the solution.

i don't know, but why don't you use your old kernel and
modules from your old redhat that worked. they should
work with your new redhat.

you can enable following kernel configuration from the make xconfig command:
1. Enable load module support.
2. In the network device button select all PPP related thinks as loadable modules.

Then compile ther kernel and then install the sm56-gcc3.tar.gz driver. You will be able to sucessfully install the modem.
