    Question encore Wireless ENLWI-G2


    Hello...
    I have openSuse 10.3 installed and I'm trying to get the Encore Wireless ENLWI-G2 card to work, this card has linux drivers from Encore here:
    Encore Electronics, Inc.

    but when I try to compile ( I have gcc and the source kernel installed) I get quite a few errors...along this lines
    Code:
    make[4]: *** [/home/marco/rtl8185_linux_26.1010.0531.2006/rtl818x-0.1/r8180_core                              .o] Error 1
    make[3]: *** [_module_/home/marco/rtl8185_linux_26.1010.0531.2006/rtl818x-0.1] E                              rror 2
    make[2]: *** [modules] Error 2
    make[1]: *** [modules] Error 2
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.22.5-23-obj/i386/default'
    make: *** [modules] Error 2
    and I don't know if it's better to just go straight to ndiswrapper or keep on trying with the linux drivers

    here is the complete console log when I try to compile
    Nopaste - Errors on compiling ENLWI-G2 under openSuse 10.3

    Any advice will be really apreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    There are two more archived files in the main one. Did you unpack those too?

    The INSTALL file in the rtl8181x-0.1 folder says to get the latest driver from sourceforge, that can be downloaded HERE

    Maybe you should forget about all of that prepackaged stuff and just install the driver only.

    I tried to compile the driver from the link that I posted. I got almost the same errors.
    Code:
    /usr/src/linux-2.6.18.8-0.5/scripts/Makefile.build:17: /home/paul/rtl8180-0.21/Makefile: No such file or directory
    make[4]: *** No rule to make target `/home/paul/rtl8180-0.21/Makefile'.  Stop.
    make[3]: *** [_module_/home/paul/rtl8180-0.21] Error 2
    make[2]: *** [modules] Error 2
    make[1]: *** [modules] Error 2
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.18.8-0.5-obj/i386/default'
    make: *** [2.6] Error 2
    paul@laptop:~/rtl8180-0.21>
    Now, I don't actually have that wireless card. But I still should still be able to compile the driver. I guess that I can't be of much help.

    There is another (newer) ralink driver called rt2x00

    To see if you can use it, enter this and post the results.
    Code:
    # lspci
    Here is a list of supported chipsets'
    Support for each Ralink wireless chipset has been split into separate drivers.

    # rt2400pci
    - chipset: rt2400
    - supports: rt2460
    - bus type: PCI/PCMCIA/miniPCI
    # rt2500pci
    - chipset: rt2500
    - supports: rt2560
    - bus type: PCI/PCMCIA/miniPCI
    # rt2500usb
    - chipset: rt2570
    - supports: rt2570
    - bus type: USB
    # rt61pci
    - chipset: rt61 (or rt2600)
    - supports: rt2561, rt2561s, rt2661
    - bus type: PCI/PCMCIA/miniPCI
    # rt73usb

    I believe you are missing kernel source files in your system. Install them from your installation CD. Then you must be able to compile the driver files.
