I'm quite new to Mepis but it seems to be very convincing to leave MS. I have only one problem with it.
I have a wireless cardbus (cwc 854
) which has also Linux drivers (at www ralinktech com /drivers/Linux/RT2500-Linux-STA-126.96.36.199.tar.gz). There is also some readme with this package but even though I could not figure out how to "install" the card.
First of all I read the KERNEL-README and the readme in the Module directory of my drivers package. Then I downloaded the kernel source 188.8.131.52
and built the deb file mentioned in the KERNEL-README. (I also tried to configure it according to my needs, but I think that this is a bit off-topic here.) After I tried to build the Module but it wrote me an error that it can not find the necessary "so" file (or "s"?).
Could someone write me down the steps I should go through?
Which command to give in which directory and so on?
Do I need to configure my kernel in some special way?
I have an ASUS A2500D laptop with ATI Radeon and AMD Athlon proc 256RAM.
Thanks for your help!
