Well the build procedure is often specific to the software you are trying to build. It does provide u with the error code.... check the documentation files to see what it is.... make sure you have the dependencies (softwares that are need to be installed to build the driver) are covered.

Also consider updating to OpenSUSE 11.1.... your wifi card may even detected out of the box....

I have nt built the driver you specified.... this is a general instruction.... hope it helps you.
