slusb module and opensuse 11.1


I have SGS Thomson Microelectronics 56K Softmodem. It is seen in YaST -> Hardware Information. In the section under modules it says “modprobe slusb”.

When I try this, the module is not found.

From Index of /packages/smartlink, I found slmodem-2.9.11-20090222.tar.gz, which looked like it might work. Unfortunately, in the Makefile for the devices, there is a check for the kernel version, and a comment “slusb support ends at 2.6.24”, so with my 11.1 kernel, no slusb module is built.

Does anyone know how to get this device working ? (Note: I want to use it for faxing, not connecting to Internet).
