Question avm WLAN USB-stick (Ubuntu 6.10)


finally found the appropriate forum, I hope.

After the in other respects smooth installation of Ubuntu 6.10 on my laptop I'd like to establish a connection to the WWW via my WLAN USB-stick ([/url]. The only installation instruction I found was this German one (

Unfortunately after entering
cd fritz/src
sudo make
(changing to the unpacked directory and starting the installation) I got this error messages ('Fehler' is the German word for error as you may know):
ann@ubuntubox:~/fritz/src$ sudo make
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.17-10-generic/build SUBDIRS=/home/ann/fritz/src modules
make[1]: Betrete Verzeichnis '/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.17-10-generic'
  CC [M]  /home/ann/fritz/src/main.o
In file included from /home/ann/fritz/src/main.c:31:
/home/ann/fritz/src/tools.h:75: error: expected identifier or ‘(’ before ‘typeof’
/home/ann/fritz/src/tools.h:75: error: expected ‘)’ before ‘__xchg’
/home/ann/fritz/src/main.c:65: error: unknown field ‘owner’ specified in initializer
/home/ann/fritz/src/main.c:65: warning: initialization from incompatible pointer type
make[2]: *** [/home/ann/fritz/src/main.o] Fehler 1
make[1]: *** [_module_/home/ann/fritz/src] Fehler 2
make[1]: Verlasse Verzeichnis '/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.17-10-generic'
make: *** [fwlanusb.o] Fehler 2
'Betrete Verzeichnis' means 'entering directory' and 'Verlasse Verzeichnis' at the end of the error message means 'leaving directory'.

Sorry for the dissected URLs above but as a forum-noob I am not allowed to post links to other sites (wonderful idea!!!).

Any ideas how to get ahead? If you need additional information please let me know.

Thanks in advance...
