I'm a linux newbie, using Knoppix (version 3.4 I think), and I downloaded and unzipped the tar containing the ltmodem 26.a9 modem drivers.

I was able to compile the source, but when I run the autoload script, I get an error, telling me that the version of gcc that compiled my kernel was major version 2, while the version of gcc that I used to compile the ltmodem drivers in major version 3.

So there's three things I can do:

1. Recompile my linux kernel with the version of gcc that I have on my Knoppix CD
2. Download and install the version of gcc that was used to compile my kernel, then use it to compile the ltmodem drivers
3. Disable the code in the autoload script that checks that the linux kernel and the modem drivers were compiled with the same version of gcc


Now I've no idea whatsoever how to do option 1, or 2, and I'm afraid of what might happen if I modify the autoload script and run it.

So any ideas?

BTW: I think the version of my linux kernel is 2.4.28, I'm not sure, but I know that it's greater than 2.4.22.

Thanks
