Try changing ownership and group ownership.

cd /lib/modules/2.4.21-0.13mdk/kernel/drivers/net
chown root acx100_pci.o
chgrp root acx100_pci.o

And then run depmod -a again and see if it gives you the same error.

-EDIT-

My problem was resolved.. but not entirely I can now see that the cpu can read the card.. well because the light on the card is on.. one problem though.. the instructions say

"Set up the wireless parameters for your particular environment, type: iwconfig eth0 mode managed channel x essid xxxxxxxx, replacing if necessary, "eth0" with eth1, and using your router's ssid name and channel # in place of the x's "

i typed in iwconfig and it came back as a bash and said the command was not found..

and yes i typed it in correctly.. and i am still logged in as root

---
is there some reason why my router wouldnt be linux compatible or does that not matter?!?!?

That means when you last posted at around 6:15 and then bumped it at 7:15, that was not 24 hours and can be considered rude to members who do in fact come here to answer your questions in their own free time. Be considerate to them, that is why we have this rule in place.

You can review all the rules at http://www.linuxquestions.org/rules.php

Is iwconfig in your path? I do believe its located in /sbin? Try doing a locate iwconfig or use the find command to see if its even installed.

If you need help installing files from source, check this sticky thread in Linux - General which tells you the basics of installing tar.gz type files.

ok i tried that..

i also looked in the INSTALL file and it says either run make install or put some files in /usr/sbin/.. heres what it says..

" If I were you, I would not trust a "make install". If you feel
courageous, just do "make install". It may even do the right
thing. Actually, with the various bugfixes that happened over the
time, it nowadays tend to do the right thing.
I advise to copy the executable (iwconfig, iwspy and iwpriv)
in /usr/local/sbin or /usr/sbin. The man pages (iwconfig.8, iwspy.8
and iwpriv.8) should be copied in /usr/local/man/man8 or
/usr/man/man8.
In fact, if you want to use Pcmcia wireless.opts, this step is
mandatory..."

I tried both make INSTALL and moving those files.. and to no accomplishment..

the make install says the files arent in the folder even though there are...

i tried something else and it came back the error...

"install:cannot stat `libiw.a':No such file or directory"

and i never touched or moved a libiw.a file...


hey trickykid.. it would be easier if you had some sort of chat client

K1ng,
Hit the email link on my acx100 howto page and we'll get this working, unlike some here, my patience is never-ending, I can still remember how it was to be a linux newbie.

Thought I'd just mention I've already pointed him to your page, long ago in the earlier portions of this thread.

Thanks Tricky,
Yes, I did see that, that's why I'm here. I'm assuming that he must be looking at an older, cached page (as so many appear to be, regardless of my attempts to the contrary, the bots seem to have their own mind) and may now benefit from some "live" help, things are moving rather quickly on this project.
