Subject:configuration errors on missing wireless extensions
Date:18:32:49 11/09/2006

When I run the config script I get the following error:

*** WARNING ***
Linux Wireless Extensions were not found. This means that they are not
turned on in your kernel or that your kernel source include paths on your
distribution are broken (namely, that linux/wireless.h didn't exist or
was unuseable). Without wireless extentions, most of the commonly used
packet sources (such as Cisco, Orinoco, Madwifi, Prism54, and others)
WILL NOT BE BUILT.
*** WARNING ***

However, the wireless.h file is in include/linux and I'm using wireless extensions version 19. I am running fedora 5 2.6.17 and ipw2200. My wireless card does work.

Thanks
