edimax ew-7326ig wireless 11b/g PCI adapter


I have bought a edimax ew-7326ig wireless 11b/g PCI adapter that - according to the box - also supports linux.

The CD contains a file rtl8185_linux_26[1].1027.0823.2007.tar.gz.

when I unpack the file I get a directory containg a.o.:
stack.tar.gz
rtl8185.tar.gz

and a script file makedrv, listing:

#!/bin/bash
tar -zvxf stack.tar.gz
tar -zvxf rtl8185.tar.gz
cd ieee80211
make clean
make
cd ../rtl8185
make clean
make
cd ../

Readme says a.o.:

RTL8185 Linux Driver v1027.0823.2007 for linux kernel 2.6
- Support Client mode for either infrastructure or adhoc mode
- Support WEP and WPAPSK/WPA2PSK connection

When I run makedrv, I get the following error messages:
(...)
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.29.6-smp/build M=/root/Desktop/wireless/Driver-Utility for Linux/rtl8185_linux_26.1027.0823.2007/ieee80211 CC=gcc modules

It is a fresh install of slackware. I attached the Makefile in rtl8185.tar.gz

Thanks for any help in resolving this
