Good Afternoon everybody

When i want to compile Acerhk (http://www.cakey.de/acerhk/) in Pardus corporate 2, to get my wireless 'button' working, i got some problems.
I installed all necessary packages (sudo pisi it -c system.devel) to build (I think).

But when I do 'make', Nothing happens, the terminal only shows some empty output.

What am I doing wrong here?

For starters , someone will ask for the model of your computer. and likely wish to see the output seen in the terminal.

Perhaps you will want to look at this : http://cweiske.de/howto/xmodmap/index.html

Thanks for Reply Anglo,

I took a look at xmodmap, but I don't think thats what i was looking for. But thats my fault because I didn't explain my problem so well Wink

So my problem is: I have this Medion md 97600 Laptop, which has wireless disabled by default. There is a button (which is not a part of the keyboard) where you can enable your Wlan. Smiley On a few forums Ive read that some people (with the same laptop) say, that you have to install acerhk, to make enabling of wlan possible. Now the only problem i have is, when i do 'make', nothing happens, even no output in the terminal Smiley And I don't know what the problem is, because i compiled a few programs in Pardus before without having this problem Smiley

Greets,

From the file INSTALL:
Quote
Before you compile the driver, change KERNELSRC in the makefile to your
path to the kernel build environment. If you are using a self compiled kernel,
point it to the root of your sources. If you are using a packaged kernel of
your distribution, install the package with kernel headers
This means you must have the package kernel-module-headers installed and KERNELSRC must be modified.

Okay atolboo thanks for reply,

I forgot to mention that I've already read that Smiley I installed kernel-module-headers and in the make file I modified this rule:

Code:
KERNELSRC?=/lib/modules/`uname -r`/build

to:

Code:
KERNELSRC?=/lib/modules/2.6.35.13/build

Wow thanks  Grin

The fixed version off acerhk (not the GUI version) Anglo, worked for me Wink

I compiled it and used the following commando's to get it work:

Code:
sudo modprobe acerhk
sudo echo 1 > /proc/driver/acerhk/wirelessled

Now, I finally got the wirless working on this old machine Cheesy even when we bought this machine the wifi didn't work in windows Smiley so we bought a wifi usb-stick, wich worked, but was very slow... I always knew that there was a wifi adapter in this laptop which had to be turned on by a hardware switch :p and now finally it works, and im not tied to a Lan cable anymore Wink Thanks!

The only thing is, that i have to run these commandos every time at start-up Sad I know there is a file, where you can put these commandos, so they would be executed at start up.. Does somebody knows how to do it?

Good for you

" /etc/conf.d/local.start " seems to be the place for startup instructions for  everytime you boot up.
Although being able to run WITHOUT the wireless seems like a good idea as well.

( and I got the answer by searching the forum, and reading this thread : http://worldforum.pardus-linux.nl/index.php?topic=3968.0
