I fixed this problem by patching module.h as following:

+#define MODULE_PARM(_parm, desc) MODULE_PARM_DESC(_parm, desc)
 #define MODULE_DEVICE_TABLE(type,name) \

Simply redefining MODULE_PARM via MODULE_PARM_DESC.

Just my $0.02.

The patch works for me, in that the package builds and installs. Sadly, my modem remains silent (bug 75553).

That patch isn't going to fly. MODULE_PARM was deprecated in 2003 and marked obsolete in 2004.

Eduard just uploaded a new release to Debian unstable.


Please, try that out.

Tried sl-modem-source from Debian Unstable, works perfectly. ;-)

I've installed the debian source package, but every time I run
sudo module-assistant auto-install sl-modem-source

the debian package is remplaced by "sl-modem-source_2.9.10+2.9.9d+e-pre2-5build1_i386.deb"

Could anyone build a correct package for edgy please :)

  Please test it and report if your bugs got solved and any suggestions you've got.

  For those who need a binary package, I have uploaded the package to my
  PPA (https://launchpad.net/~aelmahmoudy/+archive), also fixed an FTBFS
  for Intrepid. Binary packages for Hardy and Intrepid are available.
