I've tried for 3 days now to install the linux drivers for PCMCIA wireless card, and I CAN'T MAKE IT WORK.
- laptop = compaq 2105ca (athalon 1800, 512bm, 40gb)
- using manrake 10.0
- Mandrake Control Center sees the card as :
Vendor : Atheros Communications
Bus : PCI
Description : AR5213 802.11a/b/g Wireless Adapter
Media Class : NETWORK_ETHERNET
Driver info :
- cvs = "cvs -z3 -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org
i co " (not sure if that's right)
- I can post the README file here (from the download) if it would help anyone (it's in the driver package from madwifi)
When I extract the drivers, and type "make" (in the "/madwifi" dir) , I get this error :
Makefile.inc:94: *** KERNELPATH must be defined. Stop
The readme says to define the kernel path like this : eg. KERNELPATH=/usr/src/linux-
2.6.3 ... but that path doesn't exists !
I'm relatively new to linux, but know basic admin stuff. This thing is frustrating me to no end. Instructions ? How-to ? Tutorial ? Links ? Please help !!!!
