Got the drivers... also got errors
OK So yeah i'm another one of those fools who thought "hey i'm good with windows how different could linux be?" i was mistaken, linux is totally different but dont fear i havn't been put off yet i'm willing to got the extra mile and lean Linux but that'll take a while and i need the net now!
So here is the thing... i have a WiFi dongle with a Zydas 1211 chipset, so i went to the Zydas website and sure enough they have Linux drivers and a little user guide... i dont understand the guide see here - www.crazypenguin.info/Linux_zd1211_UserGuide.doc
Time for some general info/specs - I'm running Mandriva Linux Limited edition 2005, with Linux 2.6.11-6mdk kernel
So it tells me
where is the kernel souce tree? the 'makefile' has /usr/src/linux-2.6.7 by default but that folder doesn't exist... or any folder remotely like it for that matter.
One has to modify the Makefile according to the path of “kernel source tree” and the version of the kernel in your system.
