Re: Install prism2_usb without compiling


I had the same trouble few month before with debian package.
Now, i use a kernel source tree from kernel.org: no problem about compiling.

I use prism2_usb everyday, work fine :)


(NB: I have a symlink /usr/src/linux...)

Recently, in this thread talked about the same problem you have now and
the solution:

Solution? Sorry, but I can't see the solution anywhere. Am I turning blind?

For example, here[1], at ends says:
'You shouldn't need to rebuild the kernel, you just need the kernel source
and headers so that linux-wlan-ng can find them. In pre21 it looks in
/usr/src/linux by default, I can't recall if pre22 changed anything in

Ok, I have this:
jsmanrique@Dagobah:~/linux-wlan-ng-0.2.1pre23$ ls /usr/src/ -l
total 34100
drwxr-xr-x   5 root root     4096 2004-11-05 09:38 kernel-build-2.6.8-powerpc
drwxr-xr-x   3 root root     4096 2004-11-05 09:38 kernel-headers-2.6.8
drwxr-xr-x  18 root root     4096 2004-10-03 09:34 kernel-source-2.6.8
-rw-r--r--   1 root root 34864927 2004-10-03 09:35
So, it seems I have 'kernel source and headers', but I get this:
jsmanrique@Dagobah:~/linux-wlan-ng-0.2.1pre23$ make config

The default responses are correct for most users.

The kernel source tree is version .

And similar if I use '/usr/src/kernel-build-2.6.8-powerpc/'

I need a detailed description for the steps to follow. I have read
README.Debian that comes with kernel-source package (not with kernel-build
as it has been told in that thread), and it doesn't say anything.
I had this usb-wifi adapter running in Gentoo, why is so hard making it
work in Debian?
Thanks and best regards,
