Description Marcel Ziswiler 2007-12-05 10:55:31 EST
Description of problem:
I am running my Dell latitude D820 with Fedora 8 x86_64 and purchased the
Linuxant HSF softmodem driver. Installation went smooth, but it gives me a
general protection failure (complete freeze) after a few seconds/minutes of use.
I am also wondering how to make it work concurrently with the embedded
audio/sound system as the Linuxant installation replaced those modules. I
already reported the issue to Linuxant.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.6.23.1-49.fc8
uname -a
Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.23.1-49.fc8 #1 SMP Thu Nov 8 22:14:09 EST 2007
x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux


How reproducible:
Dell Latitude D820
Fedora 8 x86_64
Linuxant HSF softmodem driver

  
Actual results:
general protection fault


Expected results:
no general protection fault
