help :)

ok. i installed linux suse 9.0 about 2 days ago. this is my first go at linux.

the problem is when i try to compile speed touch usb drivers that i have got from their website. it doesent work the way my friend told me it should

he told me to go into the shell

cd to the directory (this works)
./configure (this doesent work)
make install

i then asked him what was going wrong and he told me i needed this "SARLib, an ATM SAR Library" so i went and got this. the installation instructions were

Usage: Just link this library to your driver/module/kernel.

i am basicaly saying how do i do this.

thanks, from a

Setting up symlinks huh? Easy enough, you'll want to use the ln command. Will look something like this:

ln -s [source-file-your-linking-to] [name-of-link]

ln -s /usr/src/module/module-name module-name

man ln for more details and for the man pages.

[PS. In the future, try to make better and more helpful thread titles that somewhat explain your question/problem. Thanks]
