Hi, I've recently installed Mandriva 2008 ( kernel version: 188.8.131.52-desktop586-1mdv ) & I'm having problems trying to configure a wireless pci card encore enlwi-g2. I've the drivers, & I also tryied with NDISwrapper.
First of all, I'll copy the driver components:
< Component >
The driver is composed of several parts:
(2)Script ot build the modules
(3)Script to load/unload modules
(4)Script and configuration for DHCP
So, I'cant build the modules ( that's what I guess ), and I cant insmod them into the kernel.
I tryied with NDISwrapper , but I couldn't install the new version:
[root@localhost ~]# cd '/root/Escritorio/ndiswrapper-1.52'
[root@localhost ndiswrapper-1.52]# make install
make -C driver install
make: se ingresa al directorio`/root/Escritorio/ndiswrapper-1.52/driver'
Makefile:35: *** Cannot find kernel version in/lib/modules/184.108.40.206-desktop586-1mdv/build, is it configured?. Alto.
make: se sale del directorio `/root/Escritorio/ndiswrapper-1.52/driver'
make: *** [install] Error 2
Install the kernel sources package. You need the development system installed, including the kernel sources. You also need to build the kernel once, or the kernel sources won't work. I'm not familiar with Mandriva, so I am not able to explain exactly how to do it.
