I am new to linux as of yesterday. I'm using linux puppy to try to get the most out of a 10 year old, slow laptop. I installed it fine, no problems there, but as soon as I try to use my usb dongle's install CD, the problems start.
The CD included support for linux as well as windows, so I copied the linux files off the CD and, through the console, ran the install.sh file to easy install the driver. All seemed to be going well until... I get the following error:
make: *** /lib/modules/126.96.36.199/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
and then displays an Error 2 message.
This is the only web-result I could find with any information on it but I don't understand how I should correct this: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=76975 (something about missing kernel header files).
I must stress, I only have limited experience in C and even less in C++.
Could anybody suggest a fix?
I have already tried using the windows .inf driver information file with the ndiswrapper utility that came with the network setup wizard. This detects my wireless network but does not connect. Maybe I'm just configuring it wrongly but I don't think so?
