Do you have kernel-source & kernel-syms installed?
they must match your running kernel “uname -a”
install with Yast & then also run Online Update if you don’t have them (to get them to match
also a good idea while you are in Yast to do Patterns > C/C++ and install all that too.
If that doesn’t help get back & someone will try to help:)
The tarball may be very old, and its not for the wifi card itself, its for turning on the radio of my wifi card, its a shitty laptop when it comes to drivers (even in Windows) but i’ve tried to download the kernel-source and kernel-syms but it says they’re not available, by the way, i am using OpenSuse 10.3, i used 11 but it didnt quite work on my laptop (very slow boot and lots of other problems)
edit: think my internet connection dropped, can’t even visit websites, i’ll keep you informed.
Yeah well, i’ve been expierencing lots of problems, my keyboard stopped working all of a sudden, i solved this by adding NOACPI to grub, and my network connection seems to be up, i recieve IP and everything but i can’t browse webpages or ping my local computers.
edit: well now i am finally installing the kernel-source and kernel-syms some weird stuff is going on, also my USB mouse just stopped working, but i still got my touchpad wich is working now.
What am i doing wrong? I’m beginning to get really pissed off, sometimes my mousepad and keyboard work, sometimes not when i boot with the noacpi option in grub my keyboard and mousepad seem to work, but my network connection doesn’t (allthough i get an IP-address and gateway) is there some major fix for it?
I think you may have a bad install, or even have a failing hard drive (or bad memory). What have you done to check your hardware is still good?
Also, reference your openSUSE-10.3, … prior to your installing it, did you do an md5sum check comparing:
a. md5sum of .iso file of openSUSE-10.3 listed on openSUSE web site against,
b. md5sum of .iso file as downloaded on your harddrive against,
c. md5sum of data on your DVD when re-extracted to an .iso ?
alternatively, did you run the “media” check in the installation CD/DVD initial menu (its one of the “Fx” options)?
I’ve downloaded the regular ISO from the OpenSuse webpage with KDE (3.5 i think) i’ve been trying to fix all of this, i did a memcheck and everything seems to be ok, harddrive is doing file im going to install suse 11 now, maybe that will work now, if none will work im going back to Ubuntu i think.
Very very often the ISO will be corrupted in the download. Or often in many cases, if the user burned the CD/DVD at a speed that was NOT the slowest speed, and burned with media that was not high quality media, or simply had an old/failing CD/DVD burner/reader for the burn or install, there will be significant problems. Please read our stickie on this: NEWBIES - Suse-11.0 Pre-installation – PLEASE READ - openSUSE Forums
The need for doing the md5sum check is also noted in various places on the Novell web site.
Every Linux distribution (even Ubuntu) recommend doing md5sum checks.
I just installed 11.0 om my Amilo 1655g. I used to have 10.1 working with the radio switch module fsaa1655g and ndiswrapper.
When trying to compile the fsaa1655g i get the message: No rule to make target ‘modules’ after entering /usr/src/linux-188.8.131.52-0.1-obj/x86_64/default.
kernel-source and kernel-syms for the running kernel are installed.
Any ideas what im doing wrong??
