Hi  All,

Am trying to configure the intel WLAN 2100 adapter in my Dell Latitude
D600 Laptop with Fedora Core 2 installation , for that, one of the
requirements is to install hostap. I managed to execute the 'make'
command sucessfuly after i copied the kernel .config file as follows:

cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.5-1.358/
cp configs/kernel-2.6.5-i686.config .config

I then changed the kernel path in the Makefile to be:


Execution of 'make' command:

hostap-driver-0.1.3]# make
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.5-1.358/build/
SUBDIRS=/home/xmxl/tools/wireless/intel_WLAN_2100/hostap-driver-0.1.3/driver/modules \
MODVERDIR=/home/xmxl/tools/wireless/intel_WLAN_2100/hostap-driver-0.1.3/driver/modules modules
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.5-1.358'
  Building modules, stage 2.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.5-1.358'
make install_all_info
make[1]: Entering directory
*** Become superuser and 'make install' to install the modules. ***
make[1]: Leaving directory
d/ <---- this change was recommended in one of the posts in one mailing

When i do 'make install' i get the following error:

[root at localhost hostap-driver-0.1.3]# make install
make install_check
make[1]: Entering directory
Module installation directory not valid:
Most probable cause for this is modified kernel headers.
You will need to install module file (driver/modules/hostap*.{,k}o)
make[1]: *** [install_check] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory
make: *** [install_2.6] Error 2

Any help is highly appreciated :)
