Wireless adapter driver issues
 
Hi. Obviously i am new to Linux. However I am having some issues with drivers. I need to install a Patriot Wireless N USB wireless adapter in Crunchbang but when I follow the directions for installing the drivers and am using the command "make" I get an error that says
‘*** /lib/modules/2.6.32-5-amd64/build: No such file or directory. Stop .
*** [modules] Error 2"
Can anyone help?

I think the CrunchBang website pretty much covers it:

"CrunchBang Linux is not recommended for anyone needing a stable system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even frequent breakage."

I never could get that Linux distro to do anything right.
