Question Build a module step by step


I have source code from the chipset maker for my wireless card but don't know how to build a module from it. Could someone walk me though it step by step?

Thanks,
Mark

Check the file labeled... "README".. or "INSTALL", for which I've never seen a source code without step by step instructions included...

Build the sources for your current kernel. Read the README. YOu will need to do ./configure, make, make install. load the module with modprobe. check the /lib/modules/2.4.XX/kernel/net/whatever/path for the whatever_modulename.o file.
