View Full Version : Linux Modem Driver

I am trying to get a Linux driver installed for my modem which is a
PCTel HSP micromodem 56. I was directed to :
for the latest version of a driver for this modem. I unpacked the file and entered:
./configure –auto
in accordance with the instructions. I got error messages as shown in the following log :
./configure -auto
checking for running kernel version...2.4.19
checking for ptserial...ptserial-2.4.7.c
checking for gcc...3.2

./configure: line 1: ./t: No such file or directory
rm: cannot remove `./t': No such file or directory
** error could not determine a proper UTS_RELEASE

I sent all this 3 weeks ago to the creator of this package - Jan Stifter at:
but haven’t had any reply so far. Would anyone else have any idea on how to get rid of the errors ? I am using Mandrake 9.0

Do you have the kernel-source package installed?

It is required to compile any drivers. It will be on CD3 IIRC.

Yes - I found out that was necessary before & have installed it.

I am working on installing the same driver for my winmodem but I'm on redhat 9.0 so you're not alone. I'll tell ya if I make any breakthroughs.

There are usually rpm's available for RH and MDK for most WinModems now!
