    Default Clueless about an easy outcome :(

    Hi guys,

    I am new to Linux as you may guess from the title. I do have a realtek 8192 se wireless card. I had downloaded the driver from realtek website, decompressed it but I just can't compile it. When i do the ./configure I get:

    Code:
     bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
    When I do make , I get:

    HTML Code:
    make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.38/build: No such file or directory.  Stop.
    make: *** [all] Error 2

    And when I do make install I get the same error:

    HTML Code:
    make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.38/build: No such file or directory.  Stop.
    make: *** [all] Error 2
    What do you guys think I am doing wrong?

    Here is the complete process:

    PHP Code:
    root@bt:~# ls
    ati-driver-installer-11-5-x86.x86_64.run  Desktop  rtl8192se_linux_2.6.0019.1207.2010  rtl8192se.tar.gz
    root
    @bt:~# cd rtl8192se_linux_2.6.0019.1207.2010
    root@bt:~/rtl8192se_linux_2.6.0019.1207.2010# ./configure
    bash: ./configureNo such file or directory
    root
    @bt:~/rtl8192se_linux_2.6.0019.1207.2010# make
    make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.38/buildNo such file or directory.  Stop.
    make: *** [allError 2
    root
    @bt:~/rtl8192se_linux_2.6.0019.1207.2010# make install
    make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.38/buildNo such file or directory.  Stop.
    make: *** [allError 2 

    I finaly found the problem, I had to download the linux headers and and build a system link:

    apt-get install linux-headers
    ln -s /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.38/ /lib/modules/2.6.38/build

    Is "./configure" executable? If you do a "ls -l" [those are all Ls] what does it show?
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    Thank you very much thorin for your reply.

    yeah the ./configure wasn't necessary, I didn't read the the readme file, a make and a make install was sufficient and i didn't had the headers. So i installed them and I was able to install the driver.

    However, I am still not able to make any injections, I think my card isn't capable of it. I have an internal card the realtek 8192se, do you know if it injections capable?

    Otherwise, Is there a card you recommend?

    Regards,

    Read the thread closely, your issue has been explained above.

    Do not read the Wiki, most your questions will not be answered there !
    Do not take a look at the: Forum Rules !

    Default Rtl 8192se

    Hi guys I have updated my linux headers but when I type ln -s /usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.38/ /lib/modules/2.6.38/build into terminal I get ln: creating symbolic link '/lib/modules/2.6.38/build' : No such file or directory. How do I fix this I did go apt-get install linux-headers and I got the message linux-headers is already the newsest version ?

    First try and do an injection test with your card. aireplay -9.... If that doesn't work, then the card that's highly recommended by everyone in the wikis, forums, supported hardware section, and general web, is the realtek ALFA AWUSO36H. I personally recommend it also. I have two. Great cards. And they're already fully supported and need no further install. USB cards with a 5 dbi range, upgradeable to 9.
    World Domination is such an ugly phrase. I prefer the term World Optimization.

    Its's telling you that the file you're linking to doesn't exist. What version of the linux-headers do you have installed? Look for a linux-headers directory in /usr/src. Then check if you have the corresponding version directory in /lib/modules.
