    prism2 PCMCIA card / Laptop


    I am attempting to install an old wireless card (AmbiCom-WL1100-PCI) in an even older sony Vaio laptop (PCG-F430 ~450MHz PIII era). AmbiCom has generously provided a driver for Linux on their website, which I have downloaded and untarred. It needs to be compiled for install, which i've done once or twice only, but generally figured out.

    My Problem: when I enter ./Configure I recieve the message:
    ./Configure: line 160: src/include/wlan/version.h: No such file or directory
    ./Configure: line 207: src/include/wlan/version.h: No such file or directory
    ./Configure: line 212: src/include/wlan/version.h: No such file or directory
    ./Configure: line 216: src/include/wlan/version.h: No such file or directory

    This is true. There is no such file. I don't know what this file is or does or how to get it. It does however let me continue. I then tell it, when asked, for the location of my kernel source (/usr/src/linux-2.6.5-1.358/kernel). After this it tells me that my source tree is incomplete or missing... Configuration failed.

    I'm running Fedora Core 2 with the above mentioned kernel. I'm out of ideas. Please help

    You need to install the wireless tools rpm -

    It should be on your disk or you should be able to apt-get it.
    Good luck!
