Full Version: Help With Installing Wireless/pcmcia Package

Although much of the information I've seen here has been EXTREMELY helpful, I can't seem to find any reference to my particular problem. I need some AGONIZINGLY DETAILED instructions for loading the Wireless package on SuSE Professional 9.0 on a Dell Inspiron 3800 PIII. This is a completely Linux box - no partitions of Windows. The wireless card is a Linksys Wireless-B Model WPC11. It is apparently supported by the Wireless package, but I'm having trouble with the installation. Here's the steps I have completed:

1. Downloaded the TAR file for package PCMCIA-CS-3.2.7 on my WinXP, unzipped the file using WinZip (have no idea if this is the problem), and burned the TAR and the unzipped files to a CD.

2. Copied the unzipped files to the /root/usr/src/ folder.

3. Opened the Konsole shell, type in 'bash' to make sure I was in the bash shell. Navigated successfully to the /root/usr/src/pcmcia-cs-3.2.7 folder, and could see all the unzipped files using the ls command.

Now here's the scary part (at least for me). I can't get the Configure script to run. I've tried the configure command, the make command, etc. The shell merely responds that the commands are not found.

What now? This is a FRESH install of SuSE, with nothing else done to it other than attempting to install this package. So if I have to re-install, that's OK. This is an experimental box for a college class in advanced Linux administration I am taking. (I know, I know - I've got no business in this class - but I took the Red Hat course at this same college five years ago, and they won't let me take it again, because I got an A.)

Any ideas, help, criticism of the American public university system tongue.gif would be welcome! Thanks in advance!

Hi,

to do that

./configure
make
make install


this should install it

ps.: you might need the kernel source, but if any errors show up while you try to run ./configure
post it here

I've tried all three of these commands and here is what I come up with:

./configure
./configure: no such file or directory

make
make: command not found

make install
make: command not found

Also, I noticed that when I booted the machine, during the boot process, it said "loading PCMCIA". What the heck is going on? blink.gif

Thanks for the help!
