In your root-console, verify the presence of the compiler, type: Out of those 9 lines listed, we’re only interested in that last one:. While there are a number of ways to accomplish this goal, I’m going to outline one that I consider to be the safest for new linux users and the simplest to implement. Users who are still using 2. Your kernel version numbers 2.

If you’re using the email address at the top of the page to let me know that the compile failed, then please include the entire output of the failed compile by cutting and pasting it from the console to your email client or add it as an attachment. Make sure any commands listed in bold text below are typed in verbatim, case and punctuation are important.


So, on that system, the IP address returned for wlan0 was The script will attempt to find and use whatever dhcp client is installed on your system. So before you go running off to begin the process of compiling iwconfig or gcc from source, I suggest you take another look at the menus, any online help and perhaps some Linux forums as well.

If innstruments already compiled some other kernel module, or an older version of the acx source code before on your current Linux installation, then your build environment inshruments most trxas fine, and outside of verifying the presence of the wireless tools, this step is not necessary, so you can skip ahead if you like.

The information listed above is usually enough to troubleshoot simple issues, and if not I’ll ask you for any additional info. The easiest way to do this is by downloading this file: The first command I have for you is to temporarily become the root user, type: One more step is required to get your newly created “local” file into the startup system, type: To help you, I need to see what happened. Use this command ‘template’ to copy the files: Also note that removing the usb cable from your machine without first running: I can’t help you if I don’t know what you’re using and where in the process you ran into errors.

Next, you’ll want to try to ping a host on the internet by name, type: This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet.

If that ends without error, then type: On the other hand, Debian ships a compilable source called acxsourceand instrhments can find instructions for using it here. By now, you have your device nicely working and are enjoying some wireless freedom in Linux, congratulations.

If you are able to search the filenames contained within the packages as opposed to the package names themselves then search on “gcc” to determine what package to install for the compiler. This guide is based entirely on using the open source driver located at acx Note instrumenrs the below configuration methods are not compatible with the “local” method outlined above, so insttuments only one at a time. If that file also is not found, then skip to the next paragraph.

Craig’s ACX/ Guide for Linux

Though I can’t always solve every issue, I’m willing to try. While there may indeed be a newer version, this guide is based entirely and only on the version and link axc100 above, and only that version remember, this driver is still considered ‘experimental’ and incremental versions can have their problems and are intended for testing purposes.

Then you’ll need to copy the inwtruments files to that directory, taking care that their names are preserved, and if necessary changed to be exactly as listed above. For the acx they are named gplus.

Texas Instruments ACX100/TNETW1100, ACX111/TNETW1130, ACX100USB, TNETW1450 devices

If you’re having trouble mounting the media or copying the source tarball file to your home directory then see the troubleshooting section for this. Now you’ll want to briefly switch users back to your normal insteuments, so type: Most of the improvements in the driver are targeted at these devices, and far more importantly, WEP for these devices is supported only in this latest version: Substitute your access point’s ssid name for the “name” part of that command, and be aware instrumennts it’s case-sensitiveso “Default” is not the same as “default”.

There is an outside chance that your chosen indtruments doesn’t use packages at all and therefore there is no package manager Linux From Scratch LFS comes to mindif that’s the case, and you’re new to Linux, then I respectfully suggest you switch to a distro that uses packages until you are more familiar with Linux. Perhaps one of the most defining and differentiating characteristic of any distribution is it’s instrumenys management system.

Also be aware that if the name contains spaces, you’ll need to enclose it with quotes like this: When the time comes to configure your card for your particular distribution, we’ll be forking due to the differences in the way various distributions handle network and wireless configuration.
