A time ago, i tried to install a driver of my Intel 537 EP that is instaled on my ASUS board for AMD.
The driver was made for working on SuSE 9.1. However when trying to install in this OS, and compiling, following the specified steps, I've got 9 warnings.
The modem works perfectly under Windows XP (another company delivers the driver on CD besides the finished Intel chipset and other applications like Classic Phone Tools http://www.bvrp.com).
The driver is still hung in the Intel´s site, and this release supports 2.4.x and 2.6.x kernels.
Attached is my web site where is a historical record of the conversation between me and a support programmer from Intel Support Service; over all, we work in the makefile and correcting the files and dependencies of the used packages, although the trouble is still there.
Im interested in continue working about this kind of troubles. So let me know how can i help.
