I am not very familiar with vocabulary regarding hardware, particularly that which applies to any sort of networking. Nonetheless I shall attempt to explain my current problem.
I am currently using a Dell Latitude E6400 and attempting to get internet usage while under linux. I had complete out-of-the-box success with Ubuntu 8.10 but was tired of being stranded in a version that was out of date before I installed it. for whatever reason I am trying Fedora and would like to get the wireless working.
I have the drivers necessary and the kernel development package but still cannot compile the driver due to a bad link at /lib/modules/<release>/build //release = 188.8.131.52-85.fc13.x86_64 for what its worth
build links to a non existent dir named after the above. After using ls at /usr/src/kernels, where the link leads. Only a folder named 184.108.40.206-47.fc13.x86_64
I do not know what to do beyond this point. I am not familiar with the process of installing drivers yet alone compiling them. any help would be appreciated.
