    Well I'm not sure about that. The drivers at Aztech are compiled for mandrake (who knows what version, they said 8 but the file name is 7.2). I've come across other driver source code from various sites, however I'm not sure how usefull it is. There are compiled "*.o" files included in the rpm's but they are different to the ones that are built from compiling the source. I'm not sure what the deal is there yet.

    Anyway, I was going to put on the earlier kernel then rebuild that source code and see what happens.

    It's like the nvidia drivers, the driver itself is a binary and the source code is only for making a module.

    I dont think that that small difference in versions is enough to be the problem. If the driver was for a 2.2.x kernel and you had a 2.4.x kernel then there may be forseeable problems.

    Cool guys, thanx once again for your thoughts !

    Another idea I had was that maybe the problems were because my default pre-complied redhat kernel didn't have things in it that the drivers needed. I did have a quick go at recompiling the kernel but got heaps of errors during boot and shutdown (would actually boot into linux) so I left that idea alone for a bit.

    Latest news is that believe it or not, SmartLink (the ppl responsible for the existance of this modem) have come to the party and emailed me drivers for my version of linux ! This is especially surprising considering it's their policy to not help end users like myself ! I must have said the right thing (or that 50 I slipped did the trick !*). I haven't played with these drivers yet so hopefully things will start working !




    * NOTE: the $50 may not have been included... :rolleyes:
