Hello 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?

Thanks, Robert

There's an easy way: get the gcc1-with-libs.dsl extension. It includes much of the compile environment needed (gcc, g++, make, headers..)

...or the compile-3.3.5.uci extension which you can unload after you've used make :)

Thanks folks!
I'll give these options a try after entertaining the kids for a while ;-)

wpa_supplicant is already included with DSL.
What issue(s) were you encountering and what card?

I tried both, and get the error

make: cc: Command not found
make: ***[config.o] Error 127

I'm probably just missing something simple.

Make a link for cc to point to gcc

*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
