    Thumbs up Re: [Help] Wireless Card Installation

    http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawik...X#Introduction

    I have found out this page on how to install ACX Drivers, but there isn't support for BackTrack.
    I'm i missing out something or is it really the case?

    I tried and got error at the Installing section: (I'm suspecting it is this one) "then this probably means that you don't have a properly matching kernel build environment as outlined above: retry." & "No files found"
    What's actually "matching kernel build environment" and "appropriate kernel header files" for BackTrack 5 R2?

    Hope that someone could really help me out step-by-step as I'm really i newbie to Linux
    Any help would be much appreciated

    Hope to have replies soon, Thanks Guys
