Hi I'm complete ubuntu beginner and have experience with linux commmand-lines. I would need help to install the linux asus N13 PCIe Wlan driver on ubuntu 10.10. I extracted from the provided CD but I don't know how to make the suggested changes in the installation decription ...
thats what I have in the build instruction: " pre { font-family: "Liberation Serif"; }p { margin-bottom: 0.21cm; } Build Instructions: ==================== 1> $tar -xvzf RT2860_Linux_STA_x.x.x.x.tgz go to "./RT2860_Linux_STA_x.x.x.x" directory. 2> In Makefile set the "MODE = STA" in Makefile and chose the TARGET to Linux by set "TARGET = LINUX" define the linux kernel source include file path LINUX_SRC modify to meet your need. 3> In os/linux/config.mk define the GCC and LD of the target machine define the compiler flags CFLAGS modify to meet your need. ** Build for being controlled by NetworkManager or wpa_supplicant wext functions Please set 'HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y' and 'HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=y'. => #>cd wpa_supplicant-x.x => #>./wpa_supplicant -Dwext -ira0 -c wpa_supplicant.conf -d ** Build for being controlled by WpaSupplicant with Ralink Driver Please set 'HAS_WPA_SUPPLICANT=y' and 'HAS_NATIVE_WPA_SUPPLICANT_SUPPORT=n'. => #>cd wpa_supplicant-0.5.7 => #>./wpa_supplicant -Dralink -ira0 -c wpa_supplicant.conf -d 4> $make # compile driver source code # To fix "error: too few arguments to function ��iwe_stream_add_event" => $patch -i os/linux/sta_ioctl.c.patch os/linux/sta_ioctl.c 5> $cp RT2860STA.dat /etc/Wireless/RT2860STA/RT2860STA.dat 6> load driver, go to "os/linux/" directory. #[kernel 2.4] # $/sbin/insmod rt2860sta.o # $/sbin/ifconfig ra0 inet YOUR_IP up #[kernel 2.6] # $/sbin/insmod rt2860sta.ko # $/sbin/ifconfig ra0 inet YOUR_IP up 7> unload driver $/sbin/ifconfig ra0 down $/sbin/rmmod rt2860sta"
is there someone who can explain me what to do step by step?
I would be glad for any help
