HCF driver downloads for SimplyMEPIS x86 platform

Because the scope of this project has grown beyond the capacity of a single volunteer and legal issues prevent us from using a classic open-source development model, the modem drivers are now available in two editions:

  • a free version (limited to 14.4Kbps data), available at no cost. Please use it to test if your hardware is compatible.
  • a full version (with 56K and FAX), available for a modest price.

    Proceeds will be used to further improve the drivers. Getting the full version is the best way to encourage us and ensure that this project continues.

    If you are wondering why a Linux driver isn't already included in the price you paid for your modem, or disagree with the practice of selling Linux software, please read this explanation.

    Thank you for your support!

    Please choose only the package matching exactly your system's kernel version below.

    You can determine your kernel version with the following case-sensitive shell command:

    uname -r

    If your exact kernel version is not listed, we recommend that you upgrade to the latest available kernel for your distribution. If you are using a special enterprise/secure/SMP or custom (self-compiled) kernel, or the package does not work, you can try one of the generic packages with source instead.

    (*) The date the kernel was compiled must match exactly or else it will not work. You can obtain the date the kernel was compiled with the uname -v command in a shell. If you have a kernel with a date prior to the one(s) mentioned above, we recommend that you upgrade your kernel with the apt-get upgrade kernel-image command in a root shell and then reboot your machine to obtain a newer kernel.
