[hsflinux] Unable to install driver under FC1 with 2.6.0-1.1.103kernel

when you run "hsfconfig" with the generic driver package, it tries to
compile the driver modules using the kernel sources.

It seems that there is a problem with the kernel sources installed in
"/lib/modules/2.6.0-1.1.103/build" (probably a symbolic link to
/usr/src/...). They are either incomplete or note configured properly.

You need to have the same kernel sources that were used to compile the
kernel you are running. Also, they must not have been cleaned with "make
clean" or "make mrproper".

I have tried to install Conexant HSF softmodem driver version
6.03.00lnxt03122800full in a Fedora Core 1 system under the
precompiled 2.6.0-1.1.103 kernel that is distributed in
people.redhat.com/~arjanv/, but it fails when running

When running /usr/sbin/hsfconfig as root, the
/tmp/hsfconfig-buildlog.txt file obtained is:
rm -f *.o GPL/*.o *.ko GPL/*.ko *.mod.c GPL/*.mod.c .*.cmd GPL/.*.cmd
(cd /lib/modules/2.6.0-1.1.103/build && make
"SUBDIRS+=/usr/lib/hsfmodem/modules" modules)

make: *** [all] Error 2

If I change the $ARCH environmental variable to i386, then the
building is done but nothing else happens (I suppose the script clogs
at some point):
[root at localhost hsfmodem-6.03.00lnxt03122800full]# /usr/sbin/hsfconfig
Conexant HSF softmodem driver, version 6.03.00lnxt03122800full

If you need license keys, assistance or more information, please go to:

When reporting a problem for the first time, please send
us the file generated by "hsfconfig --dumpdiag".

No pre-built modules for: Fedora-1 linux-2.6.0-1.1.103 i686

Trying to automatically build the driver modules...
(this requires a C compiler and proper kernel sources to be installed)

Where is the linux source build directory that matches your running

Building modules for kernel 2.6.0-1.1.103, using source directory
/lib/modules/2.6.0-1.1.103/build. Please wait...

The driver works well using the precompiled
except for occasional unwanted disconnections.

This is the internal modem of an Acer Aspire 1310LC.

Any guess of what might be happening?
