Sæll Börkur!

Don't know Gentoo Linux at all; I run Red Hat. Therefore I don't know
your libraries, what compiler you used or anything.

However, I compiled a kernel.org 2.4.18 with ACPI patches and a KACPID
kernel lost interrupt patch for my Compaq Presario 700EA and with much
help from Marc it's running the latest HSFi driver.

IIRC you can get ACPI kernel patches from http://sf.net/projects/acpi/ ,
at least you should find links there. You shouldn't need the kacpid
patch, unless you have a Compaq.

Otherwise there's nothing more modem-specific about my kernel :-)

One thing I have found out, is that you should use the same compiler for
installing the HSF driver as you used to compile the kernel. Also, I
avoid pre-compiled Red Hat kenels like the pest. I also now compile the
.tar.gz HSF drivers, since that works for me (probably not necessary).

Good luck!

The usefulness of RTFM is vastly overrated.
