This is my first post, so I thought I'd take a moment to introduce myself to the community:
I'm a recent "convert" - I run FC 6, and I am Very happy with having made the move
Frustrated with Windows, a friend of mine decided to try linux a week ago -
Zenwalk 4.2 was chosen, as it is a light and efficient distro, and he needs to make the most of his laptop.
The install was smooth, save for the Linksys WPC 11 not being configured- Furthermore, he does not know whether it is a version 3 or 4 (From what I have read, each has its own unique problems, as one is made from a Realtek chipset, and the other isn't..)
From my reading, I also saw that most people either tried the ndiswrapper way, or the wlan package..
The problem is that the configure script for wlan asks for the path to the kernel source ( I think that is what it is called )- and the default is /lib/modules/[kernel name]/build
He said that it said that there was nothing at that path, so I went down it on mine..
Now, it makes the file "disappear" when I attempt to click it, probably because I'm not root, but a few days ago, with FC 5, it let me see the properties, and it pointed to a file that didn't exist..
so my questions would be rather noob - where is the source located ? What do I tell the configure file ? Should the Configure be run as root (This would seem obvious, but I'm not sure if we did..) ?
