    Slackware 9.0 modem problem .


    Hi,
    i total n00b and need help setting up my lucent modem (worked a treat under Mandrake 9.0).

    Downloaded the source files.

    did a probe :

    got this


    Code:
    A supported Lucent/Agere DSP chipset modem is identified:  PCI_ID=11c1:044c
        VENDOR 0x11c1         DEVICE 0x044c
     ID are within the serviced ranges for Lucent/Agere DSP modems:
       ------------------------------------------
        LUCENT 0x11c1          0x0440-0x045c
        XIRCOM 0x115d          0x0000-0x000F
        XIRCOM 0x115d          0x0440-0x045c
        XIRCOM 0x115d          0x0010-0x03ff
      -------------------------------------------
     Drivers and their compiler kits are available at:
           http://www.heby.de/ltmodem/
      
    For more details read the Recording file.
    Good.


    Now, i go ./build_module

    got this




    ================================================== ===============
    All should work automatically for most Linux installations/distributions,
    IF a complete kernel-headers/ folder is available:
    through a symbolic link: /lib/modules/KernelVersion/build --> PATH_to/kernel-headers/
    at the classical /usr/src/ position.
    Otherwise a symbolic link will be necessary:
    ln -s PATH_to/kernel-headers/ /usr/src/linux
    Read DOCs/Compile-properly.txt and 1ST-READ if an explanation is needed about kernel-headers.

    To compile modules for a kernel other version than 2.4.20, such as version 2.2.17-3test, use syntax:
    ./build_module 2.2.17-3test
    where the version.h in the kernel-headers/ folder has 2.2.17-3test

    If desirable to make a record for trouble shooting purposes,
    Abort with Ctrl-C. First start a recording script with:
    script ltrecord.txt
    Then again the command: ./build_module


    ================================================== ==================
    Diagnostic information is progressively being written to BLDrecord.txt .
    Often, contents of BLDrecord.txt will aid in solving a problem.

    Now acquiring distribution data:
    The Linux distribution is: slackware, Slackware 9.0.0
    TARGET_CPU=
    End of distribution check.

    Checking for any preliminary complications.
    Kernel config file not recognized within the /boot folder.

    OK thus far.

    Removing old makings and expanding a clean source.tar.gz
    Setting BLDrecord.txt link within source/ folder.
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 aboo users 16 Apr 10 20:13 BLDrecord.txt -> ../BLDrecord.txt
    Following a successful check for matching kernel-headers,
    the modem drivers will be compiled for the current kernel version: 2.4.20

    Performing a configure trial and capturing the report to ../conf-report.txt.
    Parsing the report:
    No kernel headers found.
    A sample successfull conf_out.txt is in the folder DOCs/
    Read in DOCs/ ForNewbies, Compile-Properly.txt and Flavor.txt

    For the Linux distribution SuSe and perhaps Others,
    the resource test failure may merely be
    because Root permission is needed to access kernel-headers/ folders.
    Login in as Root and re-run ./build_module

    If you have kernel headers installed but configure did not
    find them, please try:
    configuring the sources with utils/srcprep
    if a Debian like System, see utils/kpkgprep
    install the kernel headers from your distribution if available.
    Do carefully read 1stREAD.
    Two other common problems are unreadable kernel sources
    (SuSE - build as root) or unconfigured kernel sources
    (configure kernel sources and execute make dep in the
    kernel source tree).

    what's next ?Please , i need my modem .

    it would be great if someone could walk me throug this process (ie remove the driver and show step-by-step howit's done).

    Thank you.

    Do you have your kernel source installed? You can download some from kernel.org or use the one on your slackware cdrom.

    Good luck

    Sorry, I missed that part.

    Did you try to build it as root?

    Good luck

    What it is asking for is your kernel headers.
    This is a requisite of the ltmodem source build. So install your kernel headers and you should be good to go. Let us know how it goes.
    Me & Myself just ganged up on I....... Now We all have problems..and none of Us are speaking!
