    Just like the output says, "You need to install the ieee80211 subsystem from http://ieee80211.sf.net" before you run the make command.

    The first error is related to the second one: in fact ieee80211 was not properly installed because of the second one and the first one just says that you need ieee80211 to be installed before installing ipw2200.
    Are you sure you have installed the headers?

    I ran the command:

    sudo modprobe -r ieee80211
    which gave no feedback, just a new prompt. Then I ran:
    Code:
    sudo sh remove-old
    again just to see if it would take care of the old module. However, I am still getting the errors about references to the old module when I run the make command (see below). Any ideas here?
    Code:
    _whynot@mobiletalon:~/Downloads/ieee80211-1.0.3$ sudo make check_old
    Checking in /lib/modules/2.6.10-5-686/build/ for ieee80211 components...
    
    /lib/modules/2.6.10-5-686/build/include/config/ieee80211
    
    Above files found.  Remove? [y],n y
    
     Old ieee80211 references found.  In order to build the ieee80211
     subsystem, prior versions must first be removed.  You can perform
     this task by running this makefile as root via:
    
            % sudo make check_old
    
     and answering Y to remove the file references.
    
     Aborting make.
    
    make: *** [check_old] Error 1
    _whynot@mobiletalon:~/Downloads/ieee80211-1.0.3$
    If you run "lsmod | grep ieee80211", you'll see there are several modules: you have to unload them all, not only the main ieee80211 one.

    Have you installed linux-headers and build-essential?

    When I run:
    Code:
    lsmod | grep ieee80211
    I get nothing. I'm pretty sure I've unloaded everything. And I do have build-essential and linux-headers installed. Weird, eh?

    Try to seach for ieee80211* files in /lib/modules/ and then delete them.

    i have the same problem, you mean delete the ieee80211 folder in /lib/modules/2.6.10-5-386/build/include/config/ieee80211/ ?

    thx

    I ended up doing that last night, just went in and renamed the ieee80211 directory and got everything installed. I'm now farther along, but it's still not working I'll work on it some more tonight.

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    But you have to rename it to something not containing "ieee80211". Or just delete it.
