I'using Suse 11.0 with 2.9.25-11 with
and the linuxant driver has been tested with the
2.9.25-9-defaul /
I've installed the alsa-driver-linuxant-1.0.17-5 with other
alsa rpms at 1.0.17git20080730 and alsa firmware rpm showing

After installation and reboot system hang for more than 3
minutes on a modprobe failure.

When the system is up I've the HSF0 device linked by
/dev/modem but neither wvdialconf or hsfconfig found the modem: 

# hsfconfig 
Conexant HSF softmodem driver, version
