Installation of Retail Plus Mini Wireless USB Adapter on Fedora Core 6 Laptop
Hi. I have some experience with Linux but no experience with the nuts and bolts of wireless configuration in Linux beyond the very easy setup on my EeePC. I would like to use the Retail Plus Mini Wireless USB Adapter (uses ZD1211 Linux drivers) with Fedora Core on my laptop. The instructions are quite cryptic and in parts over my head. I would appreciate any help I can get.
(1) The readme claims that it will work with the 2.6 kernel
uname -a --> 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 #1 SMP ... i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
(2) lsmod --> ehci_hcd 35533 0
which the readme states means that USB 2.0 is supported.
(3) At this point the readme states:
"To build zd1211 you will need: Configured kernel source code for the kernel you are
running. Ideally, Configured means that you have at least run 'make config', 'make
enuconfig', or 'make xconfig'. If your platform is not SMP system, please don't
config SMP supported, because when module loaded, this will make unresolved
I am unsure as to what to do here to make sure that I am compliant with what is wanted here.
Once again I thank anyone in advance who can help me,
