So is linux-wlan-ng > package in fact the one to blame? Neither; you are :-) You're supposed to point linux-wlan-ng to the headers of the kernel you're running. If that kernel is a prepackaged kernel, you'll want to install the right kernel-headers package and point the linux-wlan-ng sources to that kernel; if it's not a prepackaged kernel but instead one you compiled yourself, you need to show linux-wlan-ng the toplevel directory of your kernel sources. In the case of linux-wlan-ng, you can do that by running "make config" in the toplevel source directory (or by running the configuration script directly). -- Wouter Verhelst Debian GNU/Linux -- http://www.debian.org Nederlandstalige Linux-documentatie -- http://nl.linux.org "Stop breathing down my neck."
