/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lusb help???


No one has been able to help me wioth this problem and I mean knowone lol I have asked hundreds of so called linux experts, and none have given a solution that worked.

I am having no luck at all installing my adsl modems, either one.

Either my Zoom modem or my Copperjet allied data 800 one.

With the copperjet one I managed to get hold of a driver for it from sourceforge, but I am getting the following error when i do a, make

cc -I../lib/libusb -c common.c
cc -I../lib/libusb -lusb 5160.c common.o -o 5160
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lusb
collect2: ld returned 1 exit stats
make[1]:*** [5160] Error 1
make[1]:leaving dir the dir i was doing the make in
make:*** [911] error 2

Now I had a look around through google doing a search for, lusb, and found some forum posts relating to, usbutils, package, and it not being installed, so I checked and usbutils is installed on my machine,

so I am stumped, I have no clue what to do next??????????

Its so frustrating because I have the driver for the copperjet modem right here I jsut cant install it because of that dumb error above.

If its not askign for usbutils with lusb in it, then what the hell is , -lusb, and how can I get it on my system?

Or if its not asking for -lusb then what the hell is it asking for??????
Can anyone out there help me at all?? I am a n00b and have no clue what to do enxt at all???

I am using Mandrake 9.1

Got a link to the project. I'll take a look at how it compiles and see what you need to get it to compile.
