I got a license for hfsmodem ( and installed without any problem (dpkg --install hsfmodem_7.43.00.01full_k2.6.12_10_386_ubuntu_i386.deb)
The modem works as supposed.
When I reboot I get some error messages that hsf module cannot be installed because the directory / file (don't find the messages in /var/log/messages) does not exist and it does not work.
When I do the same procedure of installation as the first time, it installs with the former values presetted (without e-mail and key) and then works until the next reboot.
During installation I get the following messages:
Please enter license key [FREE]: xxxxxxxx

Setting license for modem unit 0: "klbogotz at berchules.com/xxxxxxxx"

The /dev/modem alias (symlink) points to ttySHSF0
It seem that some modules are overwritten by hfsmodem and I suppose that the same happens with the hfsmodem modules when I reboot. Therefore they are not found.

What is the solution? I'm not very expert in these things. If anyone will help, please do it in simple words.

Thanks a lot, Klaus
