    problem installing ipw2100

    Hi, I'm using Mandrake 10.1 and I'm trying to install my wifi card on it following the instructions here -

    On step one
    ;; wget
    ;; tar xvfz wireless_tools*gz
    ;; cd wireless_tools.26
    ;; make
    ;; su -c "make install"
    when i use the command make i get the message
    gcc -02 -W -Wall - Wstrict-prototypes -c iwlib.c
    make: gcc: Command not found
    make: *** [iwlib.o] Error 127
    Any help would be appreciated, thanks.[/quote]

    You need to install gcc (GNU Compiler Collection). You can get an RPM from I think it can also be installed via the Mandrake package dealie.
