Question Idiot's guide to installing 'linux-source.src.rpm' in SuSE 9.1 personal needed!


Hello. I am a complete linux newbie trying desperately to install a new PCI-Wireless card (linksys model: WMP54G) on SuSE 9.1 Personal edition using the acx100 wireless card driver from SF. However, after finding that SuSE did not include the 'kernel-source' file in Personal Edition, I downloaded it from their FTP. Now I am stuck. I have no clue as how to install (or compile) the kernel-source for acx100 to recognize it in ":/usr/src/linux" Can anyone help me?

Hi-
if you have the rpm, simply navigate to the directory where you've saved it , then open a console by pressing F4. In the console, type "su" to become root. It will promt you for your root password. After typing in the password, type "rpm -Uvh linux-source*.rpm", minus the quotes. This should install the RPM for you into the proper directory. If will give you an error message if there are any dependency issues..

Or, in Konqueror, you can simply click on the RPM and YAST should install it for you automagically

Hope this helps.
