    Installing a Zoom USB modem in Janty.

    Hi all,

    I hope someone can tell me what this lot means!!

    I have a Zoom USB modem. It has always worked fine in hardy and continues to do so. However, I want to upgrade to Janty on that system but I really need the modem to work. When I compile the source from Zoom all work fine. I the try and run the config file and I get the below read out. I believe it will work if I can only get the kernel to recompile.

    Code:
    Conexant DGC USB modem driver, version 1.06
    
    If you need assistance or more information, please go to:
    	http://www.linuxant.com/
    
    When reporting a problem for the first time, please send
    us the file generated by "dgcconfig --dumpdiag".
    
    No pre-built modules for: Ubuntu-9.04 linux-2.6.28-15-generic i686-SMP
    
    Trying to automatically build the driver modules...
    (this requires a C compiler and proper kernel sources to be installed)
    
    Where is the linux source build directory that matches your running kernel?
    [/lib/modules/2.6.28-15-generic/build] 
    
    WARNING: the kernel version (2.6.28.10) defined in
    /lib/modules/2.6.28-15-generic/build/include/linux/version.h
    does not match the currently running kernel (2.6.28-15-generic)
    The cause of this problem is an incorrect kernel source path.
    Please check that /lib/modules/2.6.28-15-generic/build points to the right tree.
    The cause of this is usually a missing or unconfigured
    kernel source tree (and sometimes an incorrect directory or symbolic link).
    
    However, proper /boot/config-2.6.28-15-generic was found.
    Would you like to try using it (in a temporary kernel tree)? [yes] 
    
    Unable to prepare temporary kernel tree
    
    First, ensure that the proper kernel source and compiler packages
    from your distribution vendor and/or the community are installed.
    
    The Linux kernel can then be reconfigured by running "make menuconfig"
    under the kernel source directory (usually /usr/src/linux).
    
    Verify that the proper options for your system are selected.
    
    Then compile and install your new kernel (for more information about
    this procedure, see the README file under the kernel source directory),
    reboot the system using the new kernel, and re-run "dgcconfig".
    Many thanks.
    If it's not broke, break it, just so you can fix it!!

    I think this is what you are looking for ....

    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Kernel/Compile

    Do read the cautions !!!!!

    This thread has some stuff on the Zoom USB modem that you may well want to check out BEFORE you go re-compiling your kernel

    Far as I can find there are no drivers available yet for my modem and Janty. Resinstalled Hardy and it works fine.

    Thanks anyway guys
