Dear Hockeyfan,

I am having the same problem and I am following this conversation from the beginning. I am also new to Linux (Suse 10.0) besides having other problems like for example that Linux killed my Windows XP while resizing the partition I cannot make my D-LINK DWL-G650+ (Atheros 802.11g) running. I am trying to install the Madwifi driver for that I need to have my linux able to 'install from a source' as I learned reading forums. I tried your hint and got the following response:

Code:
linux:/usr/src/linux-2.6.13-15 # make
Makefile:494: .config: No such file or directory
/usr/src/linux-2.6.13-15/scripts/gcc-version.sh: line 11: gcc: command not found
/usr/src/linux-2.6.13-15/scripts/gcc-version.sh: line 12: gcc: command not found
make: gcc: Command not found
  CHK     /usr/src/linux-2.6.13-15/include/linux/version.h
  UPD     /usr/src/linux-2.6.13-15/include/linux/version.h
/usr/src/linux-2.6.13-15/scripts/gcc-version.sh: line 11: gcc: command not found
/usr/src/linux-2.6.13-15/scripts/gcc-version.sh: line 12: gcc: command not found
  HOSTCC  scripts/basic/fixdep
/bin/sh: gcc: command not found
make[2]: *** [scripts/basic/fixdep] Error 127
make[1]: *** [scripts_basic] Error 2
make: *** [/usr/src/linux-2.6.13-15/include/linux/autoconf.h] Error 2
linux:/usr/src/linux-2.6.13-15 # make oldconfig
/usr/src/linux-2.6.13-15/scripts/gcc-version.sh: line 11: gcc: command not found
/usr/src/linux-2.6.13-15/scripts/gcc-version.sh: line 12: gcc: command not found
  HOSTCC  scripts/basic/fixdep
/bin/sh: gcc: command not found
make[1]: *** [scripts/basic/fixdep] Error 127
make: *** [scripts_basic] Error 2
Thank you,
Jan

Jan,

The reason why you are getting an error when you run make is because you don't have the gcc compiler installed on your system. Use YaST to install the gcc compiler and then you should be able to compile the linux kernel.

Also incase you didn't know SuSe Linux comes with the madwifi driver. it is in a package called km_wlan. Once installed you can use YaST to setup your wireless settings.

In-built Madwifi

I will install the GCC and will give it a try. Thank you.

Regarding the fact that SUSE 10.0 comes with the Madwifi driver: I did figure it out and tried before, however without any luck. The package installed sucesfully but I could not configure the driver. I was following instructions from madwifi.org/wiki/UserDocs/FirstTimeHowTo and failed to execute the 'wlanconfig' command. The system reported that 'wlanconfig' doesnt exist.
I learned that it may be caused by not having the 'new' version of the Madwifi driver installed. Madwifi comes in two versions: madwifi-ng and madwifi-old. I am suspecting that Suse comes with the 'old' version. Thats why I am trying the workarounds.

fixdep

you need to compile the kernel at least once to get fixdep to work.

make in /usr/src/linux should do it one installing the source for the distro that is.
then make oldconfig

this isent watertight because mine has not finneshed compiling yet but I think it will solve it.

later james
