can you please elaborate on the fact that the driver would not keep the 
country setting? For example, when exactly the country setting is 
discarded? After reloading the kernel modules, after a reboot, etc... 
The expected way to set the country is with the 'hsfconfig --country' 
command in a root shell.

The warning related to hsfdcpd can be safely ignored if you do not have 
a sound card in your system. I doubt that it is the source of the 
problem you have with the driver.

If the phone line was picked up, it is quite possible that it was the 
FAX server doing that so a log file can likely be generated and this 
file could really help us identify the exact source of the problem. 
Please read the documentation provided with your FAX server software for 
more details.
