slmodemd (alsa enabled) binary



Hi,
I am wondering if RedHat has looked into the possibilities of including the slmodemd(binary only, not the drivers) on RHEL4/FC3. This would cover modem support on a large number of laptops.


If I read the licensing correctly, there would appear to be no issue with redistribution.

Is there any other reason why this cannot be added or licensed from Smartlink?
