  • Wlan in Mandrake 10

    I have just installed mandrake 10 on my pc as a dual boot with win xp. I am pretty much a newbie with linux although i have messed around with some cd based stuff like Knoppix and DSL. The problems is that my atmel based wireless lan usb adapter does not work and i need it to get on to the net . It came with a cd with some drivers for mandrake 9 and i have tried using the step by step thing with that but when i tried doing the 'make menuconfig' command in the konsole i got errors saying i didn't have permission. I tried using the atmel wlan driver from sourceforge but i had exactly the same problem. Can anyone help??? it is a <TABLE cellSpacing=2 cellPadding=2 border=0><TBODY><TR><TD class="">Cnet</TD><TD class="">CNUSB-611</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>

      you must be root to use 'make'
      while in a console window type 'su' <Enter> then the password of the root acct <Enter>
      this will give you root permissions
