Conexant ADSL card module Fedora Core 3



Trying to follow the instuctions here;
http://www.geocities.com/chriscmalcolm/index.htm

To compile and install the driver for my no name Conextant ADSL PCI modem. The card works, I used to have it working on Redhat 7 or 8 can't remember which now.

Anyway I followed the directions but get a couple of odd things.

The driver module is inserted,

Sep  9 19:59:02 Host kernel: CnxADSL: module license 'unspecified' taints kernel.
Sep  9 19:59:02 Host kernel: CnxADSL: CnxtDsl_init Starting

Sep  9 19:59:02 Host kernel: CnxADSL: ARMALIoctl TIG_LOAD_DONE Device finished download OK? command=1074537731

But then the following error messages are inserted into the logs, loads of them...

Sep  9 19:59:02 Host kernel: /usr/src/CnxADSL-6.1.2.007-PIM-2.6-1.1-patched/KernelModule/ChipALCdsl.c:1533: spin_is_locked on uninitialized spinlock c8b85dec.

If I stop and restart the service, I get the following in the logs, but

Sep  9 20:02:22 Host pppd[3215]: Plugin /usr/lib/pppd/plugins/pppoatm.so loaded.
Sep  9 20:02:22 Host pppd[3215]: PPPoATM plugin_init

Sep  9 20:02:22 Host pppd[3216]: pppd 2.4.0b1 started by root, uid 0

What does this mean??

Sep  9 20:02:22 Host kernel: CnxADSL: CmgmtOpen opening
Sep  9 20:02:22 Host pppd[3216]: ioctl(ATM_SETBACKEND): No such device
Sep  9 20:02:22 Host kernel: CnxADSL: CmgmtClose Closing
Sep  9 20:02:22 Host pppd[3216]: Exit.

Normally, I would expect to see the successful assignment of the IP addresses.
Kernel is 2.6.9.1

Thanks any assistance
