Exclamation Installing ndiswrapper on Debian 3.1r2 Sarge


I have the two DVD ISOs or Debian 3.1r2 "Sarge".

I have installed it, and it works, but no internet. I have a D-Link DWL-510.

I tried to install it, but I needed the kernel sources. I grabbed this (ftp://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/mai...sarge2_all.deb ) kernel source, then switched to root, ran "dpkg -i kernelsource.deb", and it worked.

I then went to /user/src and ran "tar jxf kernel-source-2.4.27.tar.bz2".

It untarred fine, but then when I did this:

polarbear:/home/q/Desktop/nd# make install KBUILD=/usr/src/kernel-source-2.4.27
make -C driver install
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/q/Desktop/nd/driver'
Can't find kernel build files in /usr/src/kernel-source-2.4.27;
give the path to kernel build directory with
KBUILD=<path> argument to make
make[1]: *** [prereq_check] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/q/Desktop/nd/driver'
make: *** [install] Error 2

I got that.

Help PLEASE!

Thanks.

It seems that your card is supported by aan open source driver :
http://rtl8180-sa2400.sourceforge.net/

If I were you, I would first try this, rather than using a binary driver for windows on linux...

If you don't succeed (which I doubt because your card is fully supported by this driver) , then there's this:
