why can't i do 'make' on this file!?


hey guys. i just reformatted and installed RH8 last night. Before i did that, i had a perfectly working DWL-650+ card. Before i formatted, i saved all the important files i needed to make that card work, inluding the binary, driver, and text documents with the insturctions. The problem now is, i can't get past 'make'. It just gives me a crap load of errors. It says something to the effect that 'in blahblah.c- 'blah' is not defined' or a whole buch of stuff like that(typical errors that i usualy when I'M programing in c).

I never had this problem before. I'm wondering, is this because i installed more options when i reinstalled RH8 that are causing this problem!? How do i get around this? thnx

jay

ps:i realy realy REALY need ur help. living without the net on my laptop is like losing my right and left arms and legs...:'(

i'm not sure but i think you can only use "make" on source, not on a binary... if "make install" just copies the binary into the right place you could try that...except you probably dont have the file that works for make install

er, i think it is the source. i'm just following the instructions that come with the files. I was able to 'make' the 5 versions that come before this file, but not acx100pre6. it's messed up. if i could get on my laptop and email u the msg, that would be great, but then again i wouldn't care cause then i'd be able to get on the net.

how about you actually tell us what these errors are.. we're not mind readers.....

you can only use make if you have a Makefile to process, i.e. source code. otherwise there is nothing to make anyway!

...

Did you type in
Code:
./configure
that will usually make a makefile

Also, make sure you read the installation docs and that you have the proper dependencies installed.
