Ok first, I am brand spankin new to Linux having only read a couple of articles on it in the past. I am using SuSE personal 9.1 although I have already added some of the GNU commands from the ftp site from SuSE.
I am trying to get my linksys pcmcia card to work and it seems like ndiswrapper will do the trick.
The catch is I am having a heck of a time trying to install ndiswrapper. I read their online install file which told me how to install. However I am getting an error about my kernel when I try to install it. Here is the error:
"Can't find kernel sources in /lib/modules/2.6.5-7.201-default/build;
give the path to kernel sources with KSRC=<path> argument to make
make: *** [prereq_check] Error 1"
so I am not sure what to do. I looked up kernel in yast 2 and found one that says kernel source, but I don't know if I am supposed to install it or if there is anything I am supposed to do after I install it. Compile it maybe? Not sure how to do that either.
I have been trying to do this completely on my own up until this point, but the frustration is starting to give me a headace.
So I am asking for help. Thank you in advance.
