Problem with compiling source code under Ubuntu


The Driver cd for my network adapter only came with .rpm packages but it also came with source code, but when I tried to compile it I got this error.

Im running Ubuntu 9.04 64-bit on an Intel Core 2 Duo processor.

What is your network adapter ? Post output of '/sbin/lspci'.

What does it matter?

"Post output of '/sbin/lspci'"
Im sorry what?
Apparently I need a package called build-essential.
A paradox since without drivers I cannot connect to the internet to get it :/.

So, in a terminal type '/sbin/lspci' and copy and paste the output here.

I don't trust driver CDs, they probably contain ancient drivers that only compile with 2.4.x kernels ... like usual. So I would want to check the internet for newer versions, etc.

*facepalm* These are drivers for a network adapter.
To connect to the internet.
Thats what I meant when I said paradox.
Anyway I know what the problem is, I don't have build-essential.
Gonna see if I can copy the package to a pendrive from here then install it form there.
