The madwifi modules need to be rebuilt everytime you upgrade your kernel to a new(er) version.
Make sure your kernel source area (/usr/src/linux) contains the correct sources for the version of the kernel you are currently running.
That will display the current kernel version.
If you have sources for a different kernel version than what you're currently running then get everything in sync by downloading sources from http://kernel.org
Try the following: (as root
for any "make install
* Configure kernel options for your machine. Save/Exit *
* Don't actually install modules or copy the compiled kernel anywhere *
cd /location of madwifi source
During the "make
" of the MadWiFi drivers you should not receive any errors, because the kernel source area will now be populated with the data it needs to succesfully compile the module.
Someone with some more knowledge can probably explain this in better detail, but I failed at compiling the MadWifi drivers the first time around too. It took me a few reads through the README/INSTALL before I got it right.
Hope this all helps...
