Angry Problem Configuring Linksys WPC11 ver 3.0 wireless card


I am running SuSE 9.1 Professional on a Compaq Presario R3000. I'm trying to get my WPC11 ver 3.0 card to work.

I downloaded the Linux driver from Linksys' web site. When I ran the 'make config' utility I got the following errors:

I'm completely new to linux and trying to learn this whole environment. SuSE support was little if no help.

What am I doing wrong, what is not setup correctly?

From what I've discovered, the problem is with the TI cardbus.
Have you found a solution yet?

I am not sure if this is helpful but I have a Linksys WPC11 PCMCIA card working in Mandrake Linux 10.0. The system recognized the card as Tekram AIR.Mate PCF 200 Wireless LAN card and used the orinoco-cs module to run it.

Same problem - New to Linux

Laughner,
I am having the same problem as you had. I see that you finally got your Linksys card working. How did you get past the usr/scr/linux (source code dir) problem when running ./Configure? Any help would be appreciated.
