I am trying to install a driver for my wireless adapter. The manufacturer provided a sh script to do it. I tried to run the script but it stopped with this error: “bash: make: command not found”
Read somewhere you can search “make” in YaST and find the software, but the computer I’m installing the driver on has no Internet connection. Is it possible to download the “make” files on another computer and then transfer the files with a USB drive? If yes, how do I install the files after transferring them?
When you want to buil software, you not only need make, but much more. Normaly that is installed by installing the Basic Development Pattern. (e.g. in YaST >software > Software management, then Patterns from the View button, scroll down to Development anf check the Nasic Development.
When you do not have connection to the Internet, you could use the DVD the system is installed from. But then you will not be up-to-date.
But you are likely missing other packages as well, like gcc or the kernel headers.
Downloading and manually installing everything can be done, but is a bit cumbersome.
So I would rather recommend to install everything from the installation DVD.
If you have it at hand, just insert it.
If not, download it and burn it to a DVD or USB stick and insert that.
It should still be in your installation sources list anyway (depending on how you installed in the first place though), so after you inserted it, just enter YaST and install the “Kernel development” pattern (in “View”->“Patterns”).
You might have to add it manually in YaST->Repositories though.
There is a Wireless sub-forum here. Best to ask there. Anf do not forget to read the sticky threads at the top of that orums. It tells you what information you can gather already, so you can post it in the first post of your new thread.
