I tried to recompile the ipw2200 driver from the source code:
I got into some problems:
ERROR: ieee80211.h not found in '/lib/modules/188.8.131.52-killer-fawad/include'.
You need to install the ieee80211 subsystem from http://ieee80211.sf.net
and point this build to the location where you installed those sources, eg.:
% make IEEE80211_INC=/usr/src/ieee80211/
will look for ieee80211.h in /usr/src/ieee80211/net/
make: *** [check_inc] Error 1
The i checked the path of my ieee80211.h and corrected the Makefile
with giving the path of : /usr/src/linux-184.108.40.206/include/
fawad@Ubuntu-01:/usr/src/linux/ipw2200-1.1.2$ locate ieee80211.h
After doing that i ran make again and got the following output:
fawad@Ubuntu-01:/usr/src/linux/ipw2200-1.1.2$ sudo make
mkdir -p /usr/src/linux-220.127.116.11/ipw2200-1.1.2/tmp/.tmp_versions
cp: cannot stat
