System Info:


Distribution: Debian 6.0.2

Kernel version:

Kernel architecture: x86


Attempts to load the Conexant HSF Softmodem driver Installer version


ERROR: The generic package is not compatible with this system since
kernel modules can't be compiled.  There is also no pre-compiled package
avaialable for your kernel.


./precompiled-vs-generic:  36:  let:  not found


A component required by the generic package is missing on your system.
Please install the 'kernel-headers-2.6.32-5-686' command.  Then, try
again to run this installer.


When I attempt to run sudo apt-get install kernel-headers-2.6.32-5-686,
it is unable to locate package kernel-headers-


I was able to load linux-headers-2.6.32-5-686, but I saw nothing related
to 'kernel-headers. . .' when it completed.


Rerunning sh cnxtinstall.run does not change the result.  Where can I
locate the kernel-headers-2.6.32-5-686?
