It may seem like a beginner question but I haven't had to do it in a long time and I haven't been following the forum.

I need to compile a driver for my broadcom wireless card and it requires the kernel headers.

I already have the devx file but I've been searching the forum and other sites and I couldn't find even a hint of how to get them.

I'm using the stock Puppy Lucid 5.0 kernel 2.6.33.2

I got the drivers from the broadcom site

http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php

I just got this laptop and it's the only missing component.

I got the kernel source for my kernel but now it's complaining about linux/autoconf.h.

Should I get the headers from somewhere else?

I can see that I have /usr/src/linux-2.6.33.2 with all the kernel source

but no linux folder under it.

I did post a link somewhere, I think in the 501 dev thread

It's not made clean, all modules still present. Rolling Eyes Embarassed will fix that soon.

Cheers

The kernel sources have to be configured for that file to exist.

Hi amigo

The DOT_config file is in every lupu and derivative with that kernel in /etc/modules Smile

The configuration is unchanged from Barry's, just recompiled against the Ubuntu gcc 4.4.3.

HTH

Cheers

The kernel source for Lupu is now fixed, apologies for the delay.

Still in the same directory at smokey01.com

http://www.smokey01.com/01micko/lupu_kernel/

Now it's a more respectable 84M

As per Barry's advice I ran:

Code:
make clean
make prepare


(checksum provided in .txt file.. same user/password)

Cheers
