RTL8187 Driver install problem.


Hi, all

I just downloaded the rtl8180 driver from sourceforge and extracted the contents to a directory on my desktop, i read the install document which said use "make" and so i did, and came up with the following problems.



Code:
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.17-1.2174_FC5/build SUBDIRS=/home/neo/Desktop/rtl8180-0.21 MODVERDIR=/home/neo/Desktop/rtl8180-0.21 modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.17-1.2174_FC5-x86_64'
scripts/Makefile.build:17: /home/neo/Desktop/rtl8180-0.21/Makefile: No such file or directory
make[2]: *** No rule to make target `/home/neo/Desktop/rtl8180-0.21/Makefile'. Stop.
make[1]: *** [_module_/home/neo/Desktop/rtl8180-0.21] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.17-1.2174_FC5-x86_64'
make: *** [2.6] Error 2
after this, terminal returns to prompt and all the files from the directory disappear.

Any ideas on how i can fix this please?

I am running Redhat FC5 and performed "yum update" lastnight and acceted the installation of all 800+ packages which came to over 1GB.

Thanks in advance.

Driver installed

Ok, I have gotten a little further. I had to replace the MODVERDIR with the (new?) "M" in the modules makefile and then they compiled fine.

I am now having a problem compiling the driver, the driver uses the old MODULE_PARM so i replaced these with the new module_param equivelents.

Now i get problems in compile with different errors:

output error: r8187_core.c:2338: warning: ISO C90 forbids mixed declarations and code


Code:
2332:int rtl8180_ioctl(struct net_device *dev, struct ifreq *rq, int cmd)

2335:	

2336:	down(&priv->wx_sem);

2337:	

2338:	struct iwreq *wrq = (struct iwreq *) rq;

2339:	int ret=-1;

2340:	switch (cmd) {

2348:	}


2349:
2350:	up(&priv->wx_sem);

2351:	

2352:	return ret;

2353:}

164:	
165:	ret = ieee80211_wx_set_mode(priv->ieee80211,a,wrqu,b);

167:	rtl8187_set_rxconf(dev);
168:	
169:	up(&priv->wx_sem);
170:	return ret;
171:}
If anyone could help me t o fix these i'd be grateful. Thanks
