MADwifi on SuSE 9.1 Profesional 64 Bit


I got the latest version of MADwif from CVS. I went to the directory and used the make command on it. I got the following:
linux:~/madwifi # make
for i in ./ath_hal ./net80211 ./ath; do \
(cd $i; make) || exit 1; \
done
make[1]: Entering directory `/root/madwifi/ath_hal'
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.4-52-default/build SUBDIRS=/root/madwifi/ath_hal modules
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.4-52'
CHK include/linux/version.h
*** Warning: Overriding SUBDIRS on the command line can cause
*** inconsistencies

make[3]: *** [/root/madwifi/ath_hal/ath_hal.o] Error 1

make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/madwifi/ath_hal'
make: *** [all] Error 1

I think that the big orange writing is the problem, but I'm not completely sure.
I tried make install and got the same errors. I'm using a D-Link model DWL-G520, if that matters. Is there anything i can do?

Never mind, I reinstalled Linux using the 32 bit version and it worked fine.
