Hi I have recently partitioned my PC to try and use Linux.I have tried Linspire, Suse 9.1 and now Mandrake10.0. After Linspire wasnt compatible with some of my hardware I moved on to Suse but found it wouldnt install a driver for my modem + it didnt have gcc on the cd.
Now im having the same problem in mandrake as I had with Suse.When installing the driver I followed the instructions as follows. I extracted the file intel-536ep-4.69-mdk10-smp.tgz to my home directory /home/username. Then I typed "make clean" this happened:
[root@localhost intel-536EP-18.104.22.168-mdk10-SMP]# make clean
cd coredrv; make clean
make: Entering directory `/home/paul/intel-536EP-22.214.171.124-mdk10-SMP/coredrv'
rm -f *.ko *.o *~ core
make: Leaving directory `/home/paul/intel-536EP-126.96.36.199-mdk10-SMP/coredrv'
rm -f *.o *.ko
everything ok so far but then i typed "make 536" as instructed and then :
[root@localhost intel-536EP-188.8.131.52-mdk10-SMP]# make 536
Module precompile check
Current running kernel is: 2.6.3-7mdk
/lib/modules... autoconf.h does not exist
please install kernel source
make: *** [check] Error 1
As far as I understand the kernal source I am using is 2.6.
This source is already installed.
Newbie question. There is a source on the distro cd 2.4 which should i have running?
Has anyone else got this modem(intel536ep)to work with mandrake 10.0?
