HSF modem driver install problem


First of all, please don't blame me if there is another topic on this question,
i am just very short of time.

here is the deal,
i got the linuxant modem driver, i used it befor w/ my same modem, it used to work fine

now, i installed a new kernel (compiled from 2.6.12),
and after installing, the modem driver, hsfconfig just can't find the path to the kernel source.

i know exactly what i am doing, and i know that it is right.

and another deal, if the kernel version is not 2.6.12 the driver works fine.
but the problem is that i need the 2.6.12 kernel, cause it has got built in audio, and video drivers for my MB

here's my hardware bunch:

P4 LGA775 2.8GHz,
Intel D915GAV
512 ram
120 Gb hd

Slackware 10 on it

any help, ideas would be greatly appreciated.

What driver version are you using? If it's the last free one (5.03.27) I don't believe it will work with the 2.6.x kernels.

From the readme:
Quote:
The drivers should work on most current Linux distributions, based on
the 2.4.x kernels. A Pentium processor with the MMX enhancements
is required. Some systems may require kernel recompilation with
special ACPI patches. Preemptible kernels are not yet supported.

Some people are successfully using the drivers under 2.2 and 2.5 kernels
but they are not officially supported. We strongly recommend that 2.2
users upgrade to 2.4 before reporting bugs.
It might be the preemtible kernel option that's holding you back. Right now I'm using the HSF, which is the only reason I still keep the 2.4.x kernel around. If you can get this working, let us know how.

Depends which version of the driver, the 14kbps driver work with 2.6, the full speed beta driver only works with 2.4.

I am using the latest free linuxant driver (6.0.3 if im not mistaking), which is limited to 14.4

the reason i don't want to use the 2.4 kernel is that i'm having bunch of problems w/ audio/video drivers, i got them all but somehow while installed they either don't work at all, or, even if they do work, the PC becomes so got damned slow, that it irritates.

this is the only thing hsfconfig gives me after i give it the path to the source:

ERROR: Module build failed!
Please examine the log file "/tmp/hsfconfig-buildlog.txt" to determine why.
i did examine this file, and didn't get what made things go wrong, here it is:
