Red Hat 9 and software modems

Bah! I installed RH 9 at home and now I can’t get my software modem working! The hcfpci driver refuses to compile giving some obscure GCC error about parameters! So, I’m typing this in an internet cafe, otherwise I’d provide links and debug messages for you to digest. Hopefully updated drivers will be forthcoming. In the meantime I’ll have to pry the rpm open and hack the source to get it to compile..
So, if I promised to look at b2 bugs for you this weekend, it probably won’t happen, sorry! I’ll be back on Monday!
