I downloaded the driver ZD1211LnxDrv_2_16_0_0 and followed the instruction rigorously. However, upon issuing the 'make' command, it stalled saying that that it cannot detect the /lib/modules/2.6.9-89.0.19.ELsmp/build directory. Here is the output:
How can I rectify the situation?
You need to install the kernel source.
Since you don't say what version/distro of Linux you're using, or any details about your hardware, it's hard to say more. From your kernel, I assume you're using some version of RHEL. The kernel source should be on your installation media.
Also, if you're using RHEL, they can assist you, since you're paying for support with RHEL subscription. If not, I'd strongly suggest you use a community supported distro like CentOS, openSUSE, etc., which is going to be updated. If you don't pay for RHEL support, you also don't get updates.
