Madwifi - Checking if all requirements are met... FAILED
:!: I have seen this problem posted a few times, but I have never seen an answer.
I have searched a few different Linux forums and exhaustively Googled the problem, but again, I have only seen the problem, but never a solution.
I am hoping someone who has experienced this problem was able to solve it and can pass their wisdom on to me! :D
Here are my specs:
Gcc Version 4.0.2 20050901
Wireless Extention Support installed
Crypto API Support present
PCMCIA attempting to install: Atheros Netgear WG511T SuperG 108 Mbps 802.11g
Dell Inspiron 4100 Laptop
What I have been trying to do for the past 4 days is install Madwifi for my PCMCIA.
I get stuck after the "make" command.
I receive the error:
Checking if all requirements are met... FAILED
Only kernel versions 2.4.x and above are supported.
You have .
make: *** [configcheck] Error 1
:?: I don't get it.
As stated above, I have kernel version 126.96.36.199.
I see several others have received this error, has anyone gotten past it? If so, what did you do??? :shock:
A desperate for wireless Linux nubie.
