Make sure you have the kernel sources installed,
that in the kernel source directory you did
'make prepare'
'make oldconfig'

And that /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build points to your kernel source directory.

Thanks for the reply, as soon as i posted i kind of figured that out. Installed the Kernel sources from the CD and the driver installed with out a problem. However, it might try an older version, cause the latest release seems to hang my USB card, it doesnt wanna inject. Thanks

Hi fishstick,

Try the really, really latest CVS and see if that helps.

Thanks,
