2.6.8 Ltmodem support

Im running Mandrake 10.0 Community with the 2.6.8 kernel (its actually more 10.1 then 10.0). I have an Lucent Winmodem (ltmodem) and need some working drivers, can anyone tell me where I can find them?

Them drivers at compile correctly but don't work, with error message "... invalid module format" when running ./checkout or modprobe.

I just installed the ltmodem from that very site onto my laptop which is running Mandrakelinux 10.1 OE; get the one that says: support for RH 2.6.7 kernel.

Oh, and make sure you have development stuff installed.

On second thought, I think that you may have a mismatch of the kernel source and the running kernel...? Strange since the install scripts check everything...

I have also tried installing an ltmodem into MDK 10.1 final

After typing in the line: modprobe ltserial
This is what I get back:
inserting ltmodem(/lib/modules/
Fatal Error ocurrs: invalid module format

I used driver: ltmodem-2.6.3-4mdk.tgz

Don't know if it matters that much... but do I need a different driver?

Hey... I'm a :newbie: what can I say? Go easy on me!

Thanks for any help provided!!

ltmodem-2.6.3-4mdk.tgz is likely a package for the 2.6.3 kernel, whereas 10.1 has a kernel.

Just go to the above website, and find this:

Follow the instructions at the website, and it should work.
