Error messages in configuring Broadcom wireless...
I need help on configuring the Broadcom integrated wireless in my new HP Pavilon dv5000. I am a newcomer to Linux and have relativel y little experience with computers on the whole. I have successfully insatlled Suse Linux 10.0, 64 bit version to dual boot with Windows XP Home edition.
As far as the wirless card goes I have been trying to navigate the command line interface, using some tips provided by Rob Reilly on one of his articles as well as some other posts on various forums. When I do this, these are the various error messages I get:
First of all, I have downloaded the Windows drivers for the Broadcom device and have unzipped them to my home folder. I have also installed ndiswrapper in yast. Further I also downloaded the laterst version of ndiswrapper, ndiswrapper-1.10 and untarred it in my home directory. After this I change directory to the ndiswrapper directory and execute a 'make all' command. At this point I get the following error message:
make: Entering directory `/home/preeth/ndiswrapper-1.10/driver'
Can't find kernel sources in /lib/modules/2.6.13-15.8-default/build;
give the path to kernel sources with KSRC=<path> argument to make
make: *** [prereq_check] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/home/preeth/ndiswrapper-1.10/driver'
make: *** [all] Error 2
Can anybody tell me what is happening here and how I can go about fixing this?
I have tried some steps further down the line, but I guess this is not the right way to do it since I have not resolved the first issue? For instance, when I do a modprobe ndiswrapper, this is the error message that I get:
FATAL: Module ndiswrapper not found!
Following the suggestions given in the artice I seem to have successfully bound the driver to ndiswrapper using the command:
ndiswrapper -i netbc564.inf.
Hence when I do a ndiswrapper -l, I get the following message:
Installed ndis drivers:
netbc564 driver present
However there is no 'hardware present' in the above line. I guess the hardware should also be duly detected.
Thanks a lot to anyone who can help me with this! I would really appreciate it. Please tell me what I have to do next in terms of rectifying the errors as well as the addtional steps to be followed in getting the wireless card to work.
