this problem can be result of no pcmcia card installed right now? I going to buy this card maybe tonight or tomorrow so I was making all the configs so I could test it in place....

But im guessing this may be happening because the d-link dwl610 is not plugged on my pcmcia...

No, that's a problem with the sources excepting a structure's member (it's a kind of variable in C) named slot_name but it can't find it. Check that you've the correct version of libraries that the software requieres to compile.

Take a look at this page: http://www.canit.se/~oli/wl/
You'll need pcmcia-cs and wireless-tools packages installed.

I found a post in German and as far as I understood that driver doesn't work under 2.6.12.X kernels: http://www.debianforum.de/forum/viewtopic.php?p=302045

It seems it's been corrected or have been corrected in CVS version.

Edit: Well, it seems you found one in English, good for you

yeah, now is working fine.

thanks anyway. The only thing I done was download the CVS version of the driver.
