Hi -

I just did a fresh install of 8.04 on my machine and as expected my D-Link DWL-G122 Rev B1 is not working. I tried downloading and installing the latest 2570 tarball and i get the following error when i try to compile

make *** /lib/modules/2.6.24-16-rt/build No such file or directory. Stop.
rt2570.ko failed to build!
make *** [module] Error 1

I tried running apt-get install build-essential with the 8.04 alt install cd in my drive and i get
E Couldn't find package build-essential

Can anyone help?
