I have modem 'Rockwell International HCF 56k PCI Speakerphone Modem'. I used the hcfpci driver version 0.99lnxtbeta03042700 with SuSE 9.0 on 2.4 kernel.

I want to use my modem in SuSE 9.2 too, but I can't compile the kernel modules. I have installed kernel header files with complete kernel sources.

The error part of the hcfpciconfig script's output follows.

Please, is it possible to use this driver with 2.6 kernels? If not, which other driver could I use?

Thank you very much.

The hcfpciconfig output:
This package does not contain pre-built modules suitable for your system:
Distribution: SuSE-9.2
Kernel arch: i686
Kernel version: linux-2.6.8-24-default

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?

WARNING: missing file /lib/modules/2.6.8-24-default/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).

Go to and you should find the correct driver - but it will cost you $US15.
