    Lightbulb DLink DWL-G650 rev B4 on FC2 (Kernel 2.6.8-1.521) *SOLVE*

    Remembe to install or up-grade your sharutils

    [root@trish root]# yum -y install sharutils

    and then, do this in the linux-wireless.org "how-to" for the kernel up-grade
    http://www.linux-wireless.org/Wirele...atch-Howto.txt

    [root@trish madwifi-20040827-patched-for-2.6.8.1]# make
    [root@trish madwifi-20040827-patched-for-2.6.8.1]# make install

    and in notime you should be Wireless

    ************************************************** **************************************************

    I have just bought a DLink DI-624 (Wireless Router) and DLink DWL-G650 (PCMCIA Card). I have tried to compile the patch for Kernel 2.6.8.1 step-by-step. But, I have not been able to make it work

    I follow every step of the how-to
    http://www.linux-wireless.org/Wirele...atch-Howto.txt

    and this is the error I got:
    [root@trish madwifi-20040827-patched-for-2.6.8.1]# make install
