Update: Marc Boucher has now replied to BenH's mail after I bugged him ;)
There are several issues:
1) His current driver doesn't support the USB version of the winmodems yet.
However, connexant is interested in providing drivers for the USB versions
2) The proprietary libraries used in the driver need to be compiled for the
PPC architecture. To do this, Marc needs access to a PPC machine for
compiling the proprietary source.
Marc seems to be quite busy at the moment, but he'll catch on on this
subject after returning to his office at March 23rd.
Live long and prosper
