    Hello!
    I have been trying to install madwifi, however, when I type make I get some compilation errors.

    It is difficult to help without knowing the Linux distribution that you are using. Judging from the name of the kernel, I would guess that it is Ubuntu.

    Another forum member had the same problem We solved it by installing the glibc-headers. This was in Fedora, and you can read the thread here:

    I don't know what the package is called in Ubuntu, assuming that is what you have.
    Please do not send Private Messages to me with requests for help. I will not reply.
