    compiling ieee80211

    Hi,
    yesterday i've installed new ubuntu 8.04 and i wanted to upgrade the ieee80211 package,
    so i've downloaded it and installed build-essential.
    During the compilation of ieee80211 i got an error i have never seen before:

    Re: compiling ieee80211

    Hi! I'm new.

    I'm (trying to use) using Ubuntu 8.04 with:
    Linux matteo-laptop 2.6.24-16-generic #1 SMP Thu Apr 10 13:23:42 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux

    I've tried to install new driver for my wireless card, starting from re-installing ieee80211 (ieee80211-1.2.18 ). And here I stop.

    Someone have a solution??

    Probably a kernel incompatibility??

    Thanks a lot.
