Belkin Wireless G USB Network Adapter VS Linux

Hi to you all

I have 2 PC's. One running XP and the other with Linux Fedora 7.

I've bought a Belkin Wireless G USB Network Adapter who works fine with XP, but i cant make it work with Linux.

I've already tried the Linux Driver's i saw on the net, but after decompile de .zar when i write 'make', it tells me there's no file to 'make'

I've tried already a DriverLoader but after install it, nothing happens...

I'll aprecciate some help please

Tks all

Did you read the INSTALL and README files? Did you do ./configure before make?

The usual process in compiling a program consists of three steps:
1) run the configure script from the current directory (./configure --help should show you some options)
2) compile the code
3) Become root and execute the install target of make
make install
These steps depend completely on the author's decicions. The install procedure that should be used is described in the documentation that comes along the sources (hopefully), usually INSTALL and/or README files.

What chipset is the wireless device using?

What driver are you trying to install and where are you getting it?

Have you tried using a pre-compiled binary - an RPM - for Fedora 7?

Do you have the development tools installed, including kernel source that will allow you to compile code?
