    Ok, so finally a little progress for me, lol. I found the kernel on that list you told me about, i installed it, and then tried installing the driver again. I got to the "make" part and this is what it told me:

    [*****@localhost usb]$ make
    make -C /usr/src/kernels/ M=/home/*****/orinoco_usb/usb KERNELRELEASE= modules
    /usr/src/kernels/ line 16: gcc: command not found
    /usr/src/kernels/ line 17: gcc: command not found
    make[1]: gcc: Command not found
    make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/'
      CC [M]  /home/*****/orinoco_usb/usb/orinoco_usb.o
    /bin/sh: gcc: command not found
    make[2]: *** [/home/*****/orinoco_usb/usb/orinoco_usb.o] Error 127
    make[1]: *** [_module_/home/*****/orinoco_usb/usb] Error 2
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernels/'
    make: *** [modules] Error 2
    like i said, a bit of progress. but im stuck again, lol.

    If you look at the error, it says "gcc: Command not found". This means that you should install gcc. You can do the same with any other dependency errors. I would just ask you to keep track of what you needed to install, and post it here. Then others who read this thread for help will know what to install too.

    Ahhh, ok. so, first, sorry i forgot to install that, and am working on THAT now, lol. But apparently i just have the luck for running into every error i possibly can .

    So. i extractedthe .gz file for gcc into my /home/user directory, when into the terminal, cd'd into the folder and tried running the make command. all it said was

    make: Nothing to be done for `all'.
    So, i reserached more into the folders, and i found an "INSTALL" file, read it and it says:


    For now, just run make at the top level.

    To try some example code, run make examples or cd into the examples directory and make there.
    and that's all it says.

    anyways, inside of the glbcc-0.1.0 are 4 different folders: CVS, glbcc, lbpp, and libLB. Since I had tried to run it from the "top level" (which i assume is the first thing i tried when it gave me the above error), I figured i'd try to run it in the other folders, thinking maybe it was in one of the other folders.

    When i run make in the glbcc folder, it says this:

    glbcc glbcc.bas glbcc
    make: glbcc: Command not found
    make: *** [all] Error 127
    In the lbpp folder:

    make -C src
    make[1]: Entering directory `/home/*****/glbcc-0.1.0/lbpp/src'
    gcc -c -Wall -g `gnome-config --cflags gnomeui`  -o main.o main.c
    /bin/sh: gnome-config: command not found
    /bin/sh: gcc: command not found
    make[1]: *** [main.o] Error 127
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/*****/glbcc-0.1.0/lbpp/src'
    make: *** [all] Error 2
    And in the libLB folder:

    make -C src
    make[1]: Entering directory `/home/*****/glbcc-0.1.0/libLB/src'
    make -C gui
    make[2]: Entering directory `/home/*****/glbcc-0.1.0/libLB/src/gui'
    make -C gtk
    make[3]: Entering directory `/home/*****/glbcc-0.1.0/libLB/src/gui/gtk'
    gcc -Wall -g `gnome-config --cflags gnome` -I../../../include  -c -o basic_gui.
    o basic_gui.c
    /bin/sh: gnome-config: command not found
    /bin/sh: gcc: command not found
    make[3]: *** [basic_gui.o] Error 127
    make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/*****/glbcc-0.1.0/libLB/src/gui/gtk'
    make[2]: *** [all] Error 2
    make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/*****/glbcc-0.1.0/libLB/src/gui'
    make[1]: *** [gui/libGUI.a] Error 2
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/*****/glbcc-0.1.0/libLB/src'
    make: *** [all] Error 2
    Sooo yeah. If you need more info. lemme know. Sorry if I'm alot of trouble, lol. This seems like it should be easier than it is, maybe it's just my inexperience, haha.

    Oh, and the INSTALL file that says how to install it is the lbpp folder, thought maybe that might be important?

    Okay, before you start trying to figure the above post out, dont. I think i downloaded a really old version of it, so it doesnt matter. I found what i think is the recent version (Which is named gcc-4.1.2) But the problem is that it doesn't seem to have a Makefile, so when i try running make, it does nothing.

    Sooo yeah, THIS is where im stuck now, lol.

    Don't try installing applications from source. Stick to using the installation DVD for the needed programs. You are making this way too difficult.

    Ohh ok, sorry. I didn't know that it was in the dvd. i got it installed now.

  8. #27
    Okay, so. I installed it, loaded it. then i got to the part to where i need to use the command:

    and all it tells me is:

    bash: ./get_ezusb_fw: Permission denied
    That's where i stand now.

    Where you root when you downloaded that file? That's the only thing that I can think of. Try changing the ownership of the file, or delete it and download again as a regular user.

    sorry about the delay on a response, but if you remember, i download my files through windows cuz i dont have a hard connection anywhere right now to download anything through linux. so i guess ill just try redownloading the file and try it again...otherwise you have no other suggestions at all?

    If you burned the file to a CD, that may make it a read-only file. Or you may also need to make it executable. You should give yourself root privileges first. I don't know your username, put that wherever I have <user>. I also see that the driver is in a folder /usb.
     chown -R  <user>:<user> /usb
    Don't forget the semicolon between the two <user> entries. You may need the entire path to the folder IE: /home/<user>/usb.

    To make a file executable, first exit the root privileges, then cd to the folder where the file is (/usb/firmware ?) and run this command.
    chmod 777 get_ezusb_firmware
    EDIT: I just realized that you should run this for the entire folder.
    chmod -R 777 /home/<usr>/usb/
    Now try and run it again.
