Correct driver for USR5410-g pcmcia card
I have searched through the ubuntu forums for the correct driver for this and since the card is pcmcia, i have done the requisite fiddleing with "yenta_socket.ko" without result.
The chip in the card is supposedly a Tx Instr, and I keep coming up with posts that the correct driver for this is the "acx100". Under ubuntu you are to install "ubuntu-restricted-drivers" to get acx, but BT does not have this pkg in the repository.
My option then is to build acx from source. I just want to know if there is any problem with "make install" from source in BT (I don't see why there would be...)
1. Bad news for ACX100 - From the wiki:
The ACX driver has WEP support, but not WPA
2. USR home page for the device advises driver from www.linuxant.com, which as I understand kind of works like ndiswrapper. However - more importantly - the driver requires a license fee / year. Back to ACX...
3. I forgot to mention that BT does not even recognize the device (pcmcia) so not sure if the issue is the driver for the chip inside (TI-ACX111). Anyway, now I am trying to build ACX from source (requires Linux Headers - installed) with below command but get this error:
I assume BT has a different target setup than ubuntu? How to get the build?

Re: Correct driver for USR5410-g pcmcia card
I have part of the problem solved, but now with a new problem:
My mistake on the above was that I should have re-booted after:
When I re-boot, the system tries to build the modules library using linux-source - that is the solution to the "make error" described above. However, the modules build is unsuccessful and breaks with below (from /etc/driverloader/log):
apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r`
DriverLoader version 2.50
