> So what was the output from "./configure" ?

Here's the errors I encountered from "./configure":

WARNING: uclibc++ not available on this system

WARNING: *** Missing Linux Wireless kernel extentions. The majority of packet sources on Linux require this support and will not work without it. Make sure your kernel header packages are installed. If all else fails, try the --with-linuxheaders directive. ***

WARNING: Using local radiotap support on a non-bsd system

WARNING: *** Missing Expat XML library. gpsmap will not be built. ***

WARNING: *** Missing GMP math library. gpsmap will not be built. ***

WARNING: *** Missing Magick-config (or it is not in the path). gpsmap will not be built. ***

*** 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)
*** WARNING ***

I don't care if gpsmap is built or not. I'm not entirely sure how to correct the wireless extensions issue on Ubuntu Feisty. Any help would be great, thanks!

Edit: iwconfig returned these results:

lo no wireless extensions.

eth0 no wireless extensions.
