Ok, im new to linux so you may have to explain pretty good for a second. I have a linksys WUSB11 usb 80211b net card version 2.8. I have the tarball with the drivers in. I extracted them to a folder on my linux box and then the directions say to run 'make' then 'make install' Only Problem is THESE DONT WORK!! it comes up with 3 Asterisks then a message that it cant do something then a comma then stop (blah blah blah, Stop.) Im a visual learner but really cant figure this out for the life of me. And, i have the development packages installed(kernel development too...) someone told me to install those and it would work. Then someone else said i needed a 'GCC compiler' for it to work. WHO IS B.S-ing ME and WHO ISNT!?! mad.gif Would some nice person tell me what to do..please? well thanks for any and ALL help. Oh, and if its any help, i edited this file in /etc somewhere from usb-ohci to just usb or something like the directions said, but couldnt get any farther...

It would probally help if you posted the error instead of saying "some message". wink.gif

If you don't have gcc installed, that's a major problem, and you should install that. =( Not sure what distro you use, but if it has any graphical package managment software, you can probally install it with that.

And the, as Robert said, just ./configure
make && make install


Best of luck!
