    BCM4313 WLAN Controller in BackTrack 5 R1


    Hi, I have been trying to install my wireless controller for the past few days (I'm new to the linux world). My WLAN controller is a BCM4313 802.11b/g/n and I run BackTrack 5 R1. I have found the drivers for my wireless controller and downloaded them. I have followed the README.txt until I encountered some problems/errors and didn't know what to do anymore, so I pray someone will have an answer for me

    Here are the steps I've done:

    Code:
    # apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-generic
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    build-essential is already the newest version.
    Package linux-headers-generic is not available, but is referred to by another package.
    This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source
    E: Package linux-headers-generic has no installation candidate
    
    # apt-get build-dep linux
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    E: You must put some 'source' URIs in your sources.list
    
    # mkdir hybrid_w1
    
    # cd hybrid_w1
    
    # tar xzf /media/5C87-3B85/hybrid-portsrc_x86_32-v5_100_82_112.tar.gz
    
    # make
    KBUILD_NOPEDANTIC=1 make -C /lib/modules/`uname -r` /build M=`pwd`
    make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.39.4/build: No such file or directory.   Stop.
    make: *** [all] Error 2

    I am kind of desperate, I need help please.

    Thank you for your time
