    Default New drivers: Make command not working RT73

    Hey guys, well i wanted to update the drivers for the RT73 chipset to the RT73 enhanced drivers.

    iv downloaded it, extracted it.. and when i go to the module dir, then type make, it wont make it, the error i get it listed and not sure how to go about.

    Its prob something so simple as making the dir, but i wanted to get confirmation first.

    Thanks.

    Code:
    bt ~ # dir
    Desktop/  Firefox_wallpaper.png  rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.2/  rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.2.tar.bz2
    bt ~ # cd rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.2/
    bt rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.2 # dir
    CHANGELOG  FAQ  IWPRIV_USAGE  LICENSE  Module/  README  TESTING  THANKS
    bt rt73-k2wrlz-3.0.2 # cd Module/
    bt Module # make
    make: Warning: File `Makefile' has modification time 2.1e+08 s in the future
    make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.21.5/build: No such file or directory.  Stop.
    rt73.ko failed to build!
    make: *** [module] Error 1

    antichrist: Take a look at the error again.
    Code:
    bt Module # make
    make: Warning: File `Makefile' has modification time 2.1e+08 s in the future
    make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.21.5/build: No such file or directory.  Stop.
    rt73.ko failed to build!
    make: *** [module] Error 1
    This error is telling you that you don't have the kernel headers installed. Do this and then recompile the driver.
    Code:
    bt~# wget http://www.offensive-security.com/kernel.lzm
    bt~# lzm2dir kernel.lzm /
    That should get you going.
