    Yoper, WMP54G wireless adapter


    Ok, I realize that this is probably an easily solved problem, but I can't get my linksys wireless adapter to work with yoper. I figured I needed to get ndiswrapper. So I tried to install it, but failed miserably. Every time I tried, it would give me an error. These are the instructions I followed:

    NDIS Wrapper - LQWiki

    I'm using the latest stable version of Yoper. Is it at all possible to get my adapter to work without ndiswrapper? Either way, any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance

    Thanks for the welcome

    This is what happens after using the command "make" , which is how far I got on the install =(

    make: Warning: File `Makefile' has modification time 1.7e+08 s in the future
    make -C driver
    make[1]: Entering directory `/root/ndiswrapper-1.46/driver'
    make[1]: Warning: File `Makefile' has modification time 1.7e+08 s in the future

    KBUILD=<path> argument to make
    make[1]: *** [prereq_check] Error 1

    I'm not sure if NDISwrapper supports that card or not. I think you might need this driver instead.
    Main Page - Rt2x00Wiki
    This driver might even be available through Yoper, check the Yoper Documentation before you download it.


    Can't find kernel build files in /lib/modules/2.6.8.1-3/build;
    give the path to kernel build directory with
    KBUILD=<path> argument to make
    make[1]: *** [prereq_check] Error 1
    I think here, this error is because you need the kernel headers and kernel devel packages installed.

    Hi,

    Sorry for the late reply , but for anyone searching later it might still be of use:


    To compile kernel related programs you need to run

    'smart update && smart install kernel-meta-devel kernel-source-$(uname -r)'

    This will install all required packages , regards
