Belkin Wirless G RTL8185L make[1]: *** No rule to make target `Makefile'. Stop.


I just recently purchased a Belkin Wireless G Desktop PCI Card with a chipset of RTL8185L

I went online to opendrivers and downloaded the linux files for this chipset. When I run the ./makdriv command I end up with errors as listed below, in a nutshell Im getting this one:


make[1]: Entering directory `/lib/modules/2.6.8-3-386/build'
make[1]: Makefile: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `Makefile'. Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/lib/modules/2.6.8-3-386/build'
make: *** [modules] Error 2


I have also tried to install the linksys usb11 and another belkin usb wirless device. Im getting the same errors in them as well, am I having problems with my Header files???
Im lost lol

I believe you are missing your kernels header files or they are installed in the wrong place.

Get a copy of your kernels source and put it "/lib/modules/2.6.8-3-386/" then try again.

Thanks for replying kinasz,
I believe that this may be my problem as well, when I installed this Debian system the kernel headers where not installed. I used debians apt-get program to automatically download the correct header files and apt-get also installed them for me in the directory as you mentioned above. There are allot of files in that directory but I'm not sure if they are correct. Do you perhaps know where I can finds a list of the files that should be in that directory so that I can compare them?
