Subject:compiling stand alone orinoco drivers error
Date:05:23:18 07/08/2006

hi, i'm running kernel 2.6.17, and want to install the v0.13 orinoco drivers. I'm running fedora fc5, and the original distribution orinoco drivers install fine, so i'm assuming they are version 0.15. a iwpriv revealed that monitor was not turned on. I downloaded the dragorn 0.13 drivers, removed the installed modules as the doc indicated and tried to "make" and got this:

[root@rockstar orinoco-0.13-dragorn-2.6.17]# make
make -C /usr/src/kernels/2.6.17-1.2157_FC5-i686 M=/root/orinoco-0.13-dragorn-2.6.17 modules

I also read about patching, but it sounds like that is for kernal versions below 2.6.17, so i don't think i'm patching, but using the stand alone drivers. i'm not sure why it's erroring out.
