    Default Problem using make

    Hey,

    I've always used backtrack 3 livecd to learn a thing or two about networks, and recently I wanted to install the RT61 drivers by doing the fallowing :

    wget http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/rt61-cvs-daily.tar.gz
    tar xvfz rt61-cvs-daily.tar.gz
    cd rt61-cvs-*
    cd Module
    make <------ it goes wrong here

    I get this error when trying to excute make:

    /lib/modules/2.6.21.5/build: No such file or directory. Stop. rt61.ko failed to build!

    Any idea's how to resolve this? if so then please explain how to resolve it


    Thanks in advance

    This is because it is looking for Kernel Sources. I attempted to download said program to my build machine but could only find the rt73* package. Anyway, I download that package, tried a make and it still would not build. After modifying the Makefile to point to my /usr/src/2.6.32.7 sources, I was finally able to get it to compile.

    Needless to say, you state that you are using BT3 which is officially not supported, but that is what you are going to need to do in order to get it to compile, you will need kernel sources.

    If anyone else has any easier way, please feel free to help the OP
    I may have been born with a silver spoon in my mouth but it does not mean I like to be spoon fed.
