Wireless Network Card


I am trying to install a Linksys USB Wireless card. So far it has been nothing but problems. Somebody suggested to use URL=http://at76c503a.berlios.de/]this[/URL] driver. When I go to complie it, I get this error:
[root@Sun at76c503-0.11]# make
gcc -MD -O2 -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes -pipe -fno-strict-aliasing -fno-common
-Wno-sign-compare -Wno-unused -D__KERNEL__ -DMODULE -DEXPORT_SYMTAB
-DDRIVER_VERSION=\"v0.11\" -I/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/build/include -c at76c503.c
make: gcc: Command not found
make: *** [at76c503.o] Error 127

Does anybody know where I am going wrong?

./configure

I usually only am successful at compiling things by running this:

./configure
make
make install

If it doesn't work then, I usually don't use it... did you do ./configure first?

sorry if this doesn't help much.

./configure doesn't do anything. Gives me No such file or Directory.

Someone may be able to help if you post what distro you are using, and what you have installed...???

I noticed when you ran the make command it said it couldn't find gcc...

do you know if you have gcc installed?

It's a fresh install of Redhat 9. I don't know what gcc is. I'll check it when I get home. Thanks.

gcc is the compiler and you don't have it installed. You can't build from source without it. There's an RPM for it on your installation media. Frankly I suggest using Yum or APT and getting it that way.

Good luck!

Installed, but no luck installing the driver. I can't even figure out why's it's not working. Is there anyway to do an install that will output error messages? I can scroll all the way up and see all error messages. And the window stops and I can't see past that.
