I am not complaining about the binary module.  It is
just that only the default FC5T2
kernel(2.6.15-1.1826.2.10_FC5) works and all the newer
ones do not.

For instance this is the message that I usally get
when I type 
# service slmodemd start 

mknod: `/dev/slamr0': File exists

Ungrabbing winmodem from kernel ... done.

FATAL: Error inserting slamr
(/lib/modules/2.6.15-1.1898_FC5/extra/slamr.ko):
Invalid argument

ERROR: Module slamr does not exist in /proc/modules

Loading SmartLink Modem driver into kernel ... FATAL:
Error inserting slamr
(/lib/modules/2.6.15-1.1898_FC5/extra/slamr.ko):
Invalid argument

failed.

I am just wondering what is wrong.  I have working FC4
kernel 2.6.15-1.1831_FC4 working great with other
computer.

slmodemd with alsa does not support this modem. 
Otherwise I would not have to compile each time a
newer kernel gets installed. the slmodemd with alsa
support does not need any maintence when installing
newer kernels whereas the one that I have does need
compilation for each running kernel.

Best Regards,

Antonio
