Posted by rfka01 on Nov. 11 2007,15:45Hello everybody,
I'm trying to get WPA for my wireless card running, and I need "make" to get wpa_supplicant running.
I have so far tried DSL 4.0 and 3.4.5.
I have a harddisk install, restored apt-get and GNU utils.
When I do apt-get install make, both installations alike get files from the file mirrors and try to install, but end up with an error while unpacking fileutils.
What am I doing wrong, and is there an easy way to restore "make" capability?
Posted by curaga on Nov. 11 2007,15:55There's an easy way: get the gcc1-with-libs.dsl extension. It includes much of the compile environment needed (gcc, g++, make, headers..)

I'll give these options a try after entertaining the kids for a while ;-)
Posted by roberts on Nov. 11 2007,18:02wpa_supplicant is already included with DSL.
What issue(s) were you encountering and what card?
Posted by rfka01 on Nov. 11 2007,20:26I tried both, and get the error
make: cc: Command not found
make: ***[config.o] Error 127
I'm probably just missing something simple.

Posted by rfka01 on Nov. 11 2007,21:25*blush* I just found out, too.
I know the whole thread should be in "networks" now.
I'm trying to get my Orinoco Gold card to talk to my WLAN router in WPA.
I was following a walkthrough that was compiling the wpa_supplicant.
Thanks for all the help
