madwifi modules errors
I have been trying to install madwifi, however, when I type make I get some compilation errors.
What can I do to solve this problem?

Thanks in advance
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.
Yes, that's right I use Ubuntu. Well I'll read the thread and see if it helps. Thank you!
