I am trying to compile a driver from madwifi and the directions say go to the toplevel and type 'trouble% make' this would work great if the terminal recognized "trouble%" as a command. I am so new to Linux that I still smell rancid from Windows. Can someone help me out?

Just type "make". The "trouble%" looks like a csh prompt; the author was trying to indicate that you type make at a command prompt.

Yeah, I'm a total idiot. It later occurred to me that the % wasn't just coincidence...

'make' worked beautifully and then so did 'make install' etc...

{SIGH} I hate learning new stuff. It's so... ... ... humbling.

I'm so newbie that I tried the "trouble% make" thing myself. Anyway, after figuring out that only "make" was needed, I was unhappily greeted by a "not found"-type error. After some digging around here, it seems I had not configured to correctly show paths to my kernel sources. After fixing that, I now have an error saying "modconfig.h" (or similar) was not found . . .

Can somebody please clue a newbie in? I can give you any info you need, I'll just need clear instructions on what to do. Any help would be wonderful.

Vanilla Libranet 2.7 install
Kernel 2.4.19
