Unhappy How to install a driver (XXX.o) in slackware?


I got the .o file: 8211.o how do I install it?. It says that that is the driver for my wireless card... but I don't know what to do with it.
THanks.

Try either modprobe /path/8211.o or insmod /path/8211.o where /path is the path to your 8211.o module.

If either command works, add that command to /etc/rc.d/rc.modules
