since if read all the forums threads, faqs an tutorials i could find, i hope to find some help here.
i just installed openSuse 11.2, KDE 4.3.1 a fews days ago to see what’s it all about. i don’t have any experience in writing code or anything besides the few little commands i’ve learnd through my research. the system is running on an old laptop (amd64 3000+) with enough RAM and HD.
now i since my wlan-card is detected but won’t work due to missing driver i tried this ndiswrapper-method. i used the ndis-version that was included in the openSuse-dvd with no success, then i de-installed this version to try manually. i downloaded version 1.55 from the ndiswrapper-website, logged into the console as superadmin and followed the install-intructions and for intances this tutorial. now i’m even stuck with the “make”-command as the console tells me “If ‘make’ is not a typo…”…
in earlier attempts while trying to install the wlan-driver through the dvd-given ndiswrapper version i often got the error “makefile:23: kernel tree not found…”
as the welcome-note for this forum demands here’s some output from the console
linux-g6rk:/home/mat/ndis # lspci -nn
02:09.0 Ethernet controller : Linksys, A Division of Cisco Systems [AirConn] INPROCOMM IPN 2220 Wireless LAN Adapter (rev 01) [17fe:2220]
[0.331220] aer 0000:00:02.0:pcie02: AER service couldn’t init device: no _OSC support
(i guess that’s the line telling me that my wlan-card has no firmware as i found nothing else for that matter)
so i would be very glad, if anyone could help with the command errors and the wlan issue. i know there many threads about this topic but i’ve spend the last two days looking for answers and the stuff i found either didn’t work or was explained so weird that i could make anything out of it.
