After having upgraded my home laptop from RH9 to FC2 I decided I'd best get the modem working. Before upgrading I downloaded the latest modem driver (slmodem-2.9.7.tar.gz), who's README indicated that it works with the 2.6 kernel.
So it built fine and after a little hoop jumping the modem kinda works. Kppp cannot see the modem at all, however wvdial can (pointing at the same device /dev/modem). But after wvdial has been connected for a minute or so X hangs, no keyboard or mouse input is reflected on the screen. If anyone has this modem driver working on FC2 I'd appriciate knowing how you managed it :)
