I am working on the wireless ethernet laptop card - WPC11 V.4.
Linksys says it is only supported for Windows.
It has a Realtek RTL8180 chip but the Realtek links for three linux source
code packages (and all the Windows packages) seem to be unavailable
(broken?). They specified which gcc you needed for each linux package:
2.4.18 needs gcc 2.96, 2.4.20 2.3.3 (or 2.3.2?) - I presume 2.4.31 with
whatever SW91 came with should also work.
I found open source (alpha and pre-alpha) code for this chip (96K package)
but it needs 2.4 or 2.6 kernel according to the Makefile and wants a
You are just supposed to type 'make' from the source code directory where
the Makefile is, but it looks for the above elsewhere.
Do I need to put the full kernel source code into /build or just the
kernel headers, to make this separate kernel module for the card?
Was I supposed to put kernel source code under /build too? (For 2.2.16 I
put it into /kernelcompile and it worked fine there).
Do I need to make the .config file somehow, or use the one from building
the kernel itself?
I will post the module if it works with 2.4.31, as it is generic to
several makers' cards that use the same chip, all 'recent' (since 2001).
