Hi there,
HSF support has been lacking behind quite a bit.  I am currently running 3.0.1 kernel.  The last time I was able to compile with some hacking was probably a year ago.  :)  Would there be any plan to catch up?
If I need to use my HSF modem, I have to boot the system up using an older kernel, like 2.6.32 or something.

PCI ID:  14F1:2F20  14F1:200F System Info: Distribution: Debian 6.0.2Kernel version: architecture: x86 Attempts to load the Conexant HSF Softmodem driver Installer version 1.0.3 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? Thanks, John Albert Hart  |  CIO / Ofc.
