View Full Version : [SOLVED] No rule to make target Drivers/rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.3/Module
January 7th, 2010, 10:45 AM
Am trying to install the rt73 drivers and am getting the following error message
make: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.31-17-generic'
make: *** No rule to make target `Drivers/rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.3/Module'. Stop.
make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.31-17-generic'
rt73.ko failed to build!
make: *** [module] Error 1
Any ideas ?
Thought I had installed the linux headers properly but not sure.

I had that same problem yesterday and the TP-Link USB card I had ended up supporting injection out of the box, so I didn't mess with it further. Is this what you're trying to do?

Yeah but my TPlink doesn't seem to do injection. Am on 9.10.
Perhaps I am doing something else wrong - but back to the question at hand .... how do I get the driver to compile ?

Do you have the package build-essential installed? Please do so and try again.

Yeah. Its installed. Seems like I have installed just about every header development and linux kernel package as well but am open to more suggestions.

often folks are following a guide to help them install
can you tell us what guide you used please?
I installed the drivers for rt73 for a **** Smith USB wireless device
I posted what worked for me here
is anything here of use to you?

I used tpark's guide in the following post although I have looked a a few others this is the primary one.
I guess the TPlink device should be the same as the **** Smith device given they are both rt73 based so I will try your instructions and see how they go...
Thanks for all your prompt help so far.

Followed these instructions
Think my problem was I was just doing a make in the Module directory. When I used dkms to load it everything just worked. Device now injecting.
Thanks for all your help.
