    Error installing linuxant modem driver

    i want to install the linuxant modem driver,while runnig hsfconfig this
    is the error message:
    This package does not contain pre-built modules suitable for your system:
    Distribution: Mandrake-10.0
    Kernel arch: i686-SMP
    Kernel version: linux-2.6.3-4mdk

    Trying to automatically re-compile the modules..
    (this requires a C compiler and proper kernel sources to be installed)

    Where is the linux source build directory that matches your running kernel?
    [/lib/modules/2.6.3-4mdk/build] /lib/modules/2.6.3-4mdk/build

    WARNING: missing file /lib/modules/2.6.3-4mdk/build/include/linux/modversions.h
    The cause of this problem is usually a missing or misconfigured
    kernel source tree (and sometimes an incorrect directory or symbolic link).

    First, ensure that the proper kernel source and compiler packages
    from your distribution vendor and/or the community are installed.

    The Linux kernel can then be reconfigured by running "make menuconfig"
    under the kernel source directory (usually /usr/src/linux).

    Verify that the proper options for your system are selected,
    and that CONFIG_SMP ("Symmetric multi-processing support" under
    "Processor type and features") is disabled, as this driver is
    presently designed to work on single-processor machines.

    Then compile and install your new kernel (for more information about
    this procedure, see the README file under the kernel source directory),
    reboot the system using the new kernel, and re-run "hsfconfig".

    The kernel source directory is in "/usr/src/linux-2.6.3-4mdk" but really
    the file "modeversions.h" are missing in the "/linux-2.6.3-4mdk/include
    /linux/"and the symblic link "build" in /lib/modules/2.6.3-4mdk is
    is to the correct directory of kernel source.The CONFIG_SMP is set to "NO"
    plz help me what can i do to solve the problem.

    Perhaps the driver is for the 2.4 kernel only?

    Just a thought. Did you find one specific to the 2.6 kernel?

    thanks for reply

    thanks for reply,it is the source directory of linuxant driver i think may be it possible you compile for any kernel.

    firstly, im not sure the linuxant driver likes SMP at all....

    and the good old free version (versions<1.0) do not support 2.6 kernels) u need to get their nasty capped rate free version of the new driver or pay them money for a full version.
