Angry SuSE patched out my wireles card


Hi,

Anybody got any suggestions on this one...

Basically I let SuSE update run with the automatic setting the other day. It kindly went off, retrieved a whole pile of patches, rebuilt the kernel, etc. Unfortunately in the process it overwrote the WLAN-NG pre16 drivers I had installed with the current SuSE issue pre9 drivers

Have tried rebulding the pre16 drivers but there seems to be something floating around mismatching across the two kernels. When I try the MAKE ALL, I get the following error after it's built the p80211 modules:

make[3]: Entering directory
`/root/wlan/linux-wlan-ng-0.2.1-pre16/src/prism2/driver'
make[3]: *** No rule to make target
`/usr/src/linux-2.4.21-99/include/linux/modsetver.h', needed by
`.depend.usb'. Stop.
make[3]: Leaving directory
`/root/wlan/linux-wlan-ng-0.2.1-pre16/src/prism2/driver'


The current source files and kernel modules are all setup to point to linux-2.4.21-199.

I've tried cleaning things up with MAKE CLONECONFIG followed by MAKE DEP and MAKE CLEAN but still no luck.

Thanks in advance,
Keith

Um... this really isnt to difficult to fix? Not even sure why you had to ask..

Fire up yast. find the kernel. And, bah-dah-dum... Update it to version .99 that you started out with..

Then. Go back into auto-update. And have enough sense to click on the kernel updates and disable them permenantly.

Caeda,

Thanks for the reply. I was hoping it would be possible to fixup the drivers while keeping the kernel updates that had been downloaded.

Do you think that is something that's easy to do for a newbie?

Talking Nice simple solution...

Removing the source directory for the wlan-ng drivers and re-untarring the file seems to have worked. Must have been something left in from the old build it didn't clean out.
