Installing Madwifi, getting error while compiling..


So i have fedora 10 and my wireless adapter is not working and so i'm installing madwifi drivers. I went to sourceforge and downloaded but it was source so i had to compile it.

I did this but got errors..

Not sure if this will address the exact issue you're seeing, but have you read through the Madwifi FirstTimeHowTo? Note especially the "removing old modules" step.

P.S. What wireless adapter are you using?

---

P.P.S. Check the Fedora yum repos for 'madwifi' as well. CentOS has it available in one of the third-party repos, FWIW.

so yum install madwifi doesn't work ?

http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat....i386.rpm.html

I mean either way it's 0.9.4 so I don't see that compiling your own would be any better than installing the provided package
