cannot install intel wireless 3945ABG
machine nc compaq nc4400
os centos 5.3
wireless info intel 3945 ABG
when I try to activate intel 3945 ABG,
I get the following error
iwl3945: iwlwifi-3945-1.ucode firmware file req failed: Reason -2
I google around this error which leads me to
intellinuxwireless dot org/tar.php?p=iwlwifi&a=iwlwifi-1.2.25.tgz&f=INSTALL
"First, you build and install the mac80211 subsystem. See:
intellinuxwireless dot org/?p=mac80211"
which leads me to another page within intellinuxwirless dot org
intellinuxwireless dot org/?p=mac80211&n=HOWTO-mac80211
"If it finds Makefile, then things should work. If it doesn't, you will need to install the sources for your kernel image. The steps to doing that are distribution specific and are not documented here. "
could anyone tell me how to install the sources for my kernal image?
how to resolve the above issue?
thanks a lot!
