I used to just rename the "/usr/src/linux-2.4.XX-XX" directory to just plain "linux" for the install. I don't know if that will work for you. I think there is a newer version of the pctel driver. Remember to rename the directory back to the original name after your done. There is another way to put the path of the kernel source into the line. I think it is this --with-kernel-sources = /usr/src/linux-2.4.18-14

Im a newbie and tried installing HSP56 modem (for RedHat 8.0) from the download unofficial PCTel site. As usual it complained about the modversions.h file. i tried lookin in folder "/usr/src/linux" but of no use. There is one file that is located in /usr/include/linux and when i tried to look the contents. Content says i should use the kernel source files for include. But im unsuccessful in doing that. Can any one help with line by line procedures ?.

Most of the sites suggest "make dep " , "make menuconfig" but i have no sources folder where i can run those scripts.

I would appreciate your help

thanks,

Try installing the kernel source files, I had a similar prob in RH 9.0 and this seemed to help, I did it through GNOME but I don't know if its the same in RH 8.0.
