I'm trying to install the wireless drivers from http://ipw2100.sourceforge.net/
for my intel pro wireless card. I've downloaded it, untarred it and ran "make". I get the following:
[root@localhost ipw2100-0.41]# make
The build failed to find the Host AP files in:
Prior to building IPW2100 you need to download and install the
hostap-driver-0.1.3 package available from
Once you have it installed on your system, you can invoke the build via:
% make [KSRC=/patch/to/kernel] HOSTAP=/patch/to/hostap-driver-0.1.3
make: *** [hostap_check] Error 1
so i got the hostap-driver-0.1.3 thing and installed it to /root/tempdownload/ipw2100-0.41/hostap-driver-0.1.3 and i can explore to the modules folder.
i ran again, but i don't understand the % make [KSRC=/patch/to/kernel] HOSTAP=/patch/to/hostap-driver-0.1.3
part... what is the /patch/to/kernel part? where is my kernel located. And I'm assuming the /patch/to/hostap-driver-0.1.3 is going to be /root/tempdownload/ipw2100-0.41/hostap-driver-0.1.3?
