    Can't get 56k modem setup in Fedora Core 1


    I use Fedora Core 1 and I am having trouble getting my 56k modem setup correctly.

    I have the hsf modem drivers that when installed in Slackware 9.1, worked fine. But when I tried using these same drivers in Fedora, I recieved this error message towards the very end of the install:

    Error: Module re-compilation and installation failed!

    Please examine the log file "/tmp/hsfconfig-buildlog.txt" to determine why



    So, I did. I went and checked out that .txt file and the last entry in the file said this:

    *compiling (gcc) serial_hsf.c
    In file included from serial_hsf.c:897:
    Serial_core.c: In function 'uart_close':
    Serial_core.c: 1073: error: invalid operands to binary ==
    make: ***[serial_hsf.o] Error]



    I have no idea what any of this means, nor what to do. It was extremely hard for me to find these modem drivers and now they don't seem to work with Fedora or something.

    While I am in Windows, I can go ahead and post my modem. It is:

    Soft V92 Smart Speakerphone Modem attached to COM3

    Please help me to get online in Fedora, I like it so much, it makes me want to use it all the time. And as long as Windows is the only OS I have that has internet, I'll be forced to come back to Windows everytime I want to get online.

    Open up /usr/lib/hsf/modules/serial_core.c
    Post the block of code from line 1073 up to } here.

    I wasn't able to get around to checking that file out. But I did check out the error log the hsf modem driver tool make. Here is all the details:

    Yes, but that's why I wanted to see that code as what you posted is more of the same
    Code:
    serial_core.c: In function `uart_close':
    serial_core.c:1073: error: invalid operands to binary ==
    make: *** [serial_hsf.o] Error 1

    Well, I tried to copy the information you wanted. I found line 1073 but I was unsure of where you wanted me to stop at.

    Could you make this a bit more clear? I'll post what you wanted to see after I figure out where you want me to stop at.

    Thanks for your patience and help!
