IPW2200 driver for Centrino on Mandrake 1
I'm trying to use the IPW2200 driver for Intel's WiFi cards that's found on SourceForge here:
I followed the installation directions and unpacked the tarball, then ran the make command. The first time I ran the command I ran into errors because a directory did not exist. After using su to gain root access, I was able to create that directory. Running the make command again gave me this error:
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.3-7mdk/build SUBDIRS=`pwd` modules
make: Entering directory `/lib/modules/2.6.3-7mdk/build'
make: *** No rule to make target `modules'. Stop.
make: Leaving directory `/lib/modules/2.6.3-7mdk/build'
make: *** [default] Error 2
I've tried running the make command both as root and as a normal user with the same results. Can anyone shed light on this error? Should I have unpacked the tarball to a different directory perhaps? If so, where?
Info that may be useful:
Hardware:ChemBook 2056 (aka Compal CL56) laptop w/Centrino chipset, including 1.7 gHz processor and b/g wireless card. The hardware works fine under Windows XP.
Software:Mandrake 10 Official(uses 2.6 kernel)
User: Raised on DOS, knowledgeable with Windows, limited experience with Linux from running a RedHat server and playing a bit with RedHat 9 on my desktop machine. That box still has a dual-boot with XP and RH9, but hasn't been booted to anything other than Windows in months. I'm hoping to keep the laptop 100% free of Microsoft products.
