I was trying to load my modem driver for a pctel hsp micromodem when
it returned an error saying that if i load this driver it will taint
the kernel. i am running kernel 2.4.20 with rh 8. the driver name is
"ptserial.o" and the command i passed was "insmod -f ptserial". it was
working fine for a few days then this happened. if anyone could please
shine some light on the possible cause/solution to this problem that
would be great. goodbye.
