Conexant HSF (softmodem) driver

This package contains generic Linux drivers for the Conexant (formerly Rockwell) Softmodem HSF modem family, which are used by many modem and computer system manufacturers. They should work on most current Linux distributions, based on the 2.4.x kernels. A Pentium processor with the MMX enhancements is required. Some systems may require kernel recompilation with special ACPI patches. Preemptible kernels are not yet supported.

V.92, Caller ID, and FAX (Class 1/1.0) support were added. Support for 2.6 kernels was added. NVM/.inf handling was completely redesigned. Multiple device instances are now supported, which means that more than one modem can be handled by the driver. SMP support was improved, and preemptible kernels should now work.

          Not useful
          Using Debian for PowerPC this semi-closed-source is not useful at all for me. Another intel-centric driver.
