Thank you, Jonathan !
Yesterday I've posted wrong my help request to Driverloader list instaed 
of HSF list. Sorry, my mistake.

The answer is not sufficient, because I think, I have installed all 
necessary parts for a installation of the hsf.
snip ---

    lotraum:/home/oldfield # rpm -qa | grep kernel
    lotraum:/home/oldfield #

snap ---
Should I install more or another packets?

Mit freundlichem Gruß /best regards
