cp: omitting error


Hi,

I am trying to copy a folder from floppy to my directory.

the name of the folder is "orinoco-usb-0.3.0-rrey4"

I type cp /mnt/floppy/orinoco-usb-0.3.0-rrey4 .
and I get error msg that reads - cp: omitting directory '/mnt/floppy/orinoco-usb=0.3.0-rrey4


what am I doing wrong?

thanks

-r = recursive. see the cp manpage for more details.

I am trying something but not working, can someone be nice enough to please guide me thru the install?

http://dev.gentoo.org/~agriffis/N620c/

Under Wireless Networking

Wireless Networking
The W200 (lid-mounted wireless 802.11b module) is working well for me using a version of the orinoco-usb driver modified to run on 2.6.0. I've made orinoco-usb-0.3.0-rrey4.tar.bz2 available here since it is no longer available from here.

cd /usr/src
tar xjvf orinoco-usb-0.3.0-rrey4.tar.bz2
cd orinoco-usb-0.3.0-rrey4
make KERNEL_SRC=/usr/src/linux
make install
mkdir /lib/modules/2.6.5-mm1/orinoco
cp driver/*.ko /lib/modules/2.6.0-test9/orinoco
emerge hotplug
rc-update add hotplug default
/etc/init.d/hotplug start

I am trying to do the following. But with no luck.

Please help

ok, we have not one, but ten commands there... you've not even said which one isn't working, let alone what happens when whichever one it is doesn't work. we're not psychic.

Sorry about that.

make KERNEL_SRC=/usr/src/linux

Here is the error:
[jimmy@localhost orinoco-usb-0.3.0-rrey4]$ make KERNEL_SRC=/usr/src/linux
make -C driver
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/jimmy/linux/orinoco-usb-0.3.0-rrey4/driver'
mkdir -p .tmp_versions
cp /usr/src/linux/.tmp_versions/*.mod /home/jimmy/linux/orinoco-usb-0.3.0-rrey4/driver/.tmp_versions
cp: cannot stat `/usr/src/linux/.tmp_versions/*.mod': No such file or directory
make[1]: [modules] Error 1 (ignored)
make -C /usr/src/linux SUBDIRS=/home/jimmy/linux/orinoco-usb-0.3.0-rrey4/driver MODVERDIR=/home/jimmy/linux/orinoco-usb-0.3.0-rrey4/driver/.tmp_versions modules
make: *** /usr/src/linux: No such file or directory. Stop.
make: Entering an unknown directorymake: Leaving an unknown directorymake[1]: *** [modules] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/jimmy/linux/orinoco-usb-0.3.0-rrey4/driver'
make: *** [all] Error 2

thats the command that does not work. I unzipped the tar file in windows and copies just the folder. So I started from (cd orinoco-usb-0.3.0-rrey4
) step.

I hope this is suffix info?

suffix? you mean sufficient?

erm.. you have no linux source installed. if you are not on gentoo. get it from your dsitro cd's. if you are on gentoo then that will be there already. the commands you have are for gentoo.... you do realise that?

Sorry but unfortunately I am not an expert like you. I just started learning linux few days ago.

I am using Mandrake 9.2 KDE. If possible can you please guide me thru the steps to get this going?

thanks

you started with a question about the cp command, and are now looking at wireles NIC support... not exactly the same thing. i'm not familiar with much wireless stuff, sorry.
