2200bg wireless install problem on toshiba m45-s331

Hello,

I tried to follow http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/sho...d.php?p=223328 to install drivers for my wireless card but somehow while i was installing driver ipw1.0.0.gz from ipw2200.sourceforge.net i received errors: 127 and 2

[root@localhost ipw2200]# make
/bin/sh: cc: command not found
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.9-1.667/build SUBDIRS=/usr/src/redhat/drivers/net/wireless/ipw2200 MODVERDIR=/usr/src/redhat/drivers/net/wireless/ipw2200 modules

remove all those downloads all of them
For a x86 system not a x86_64 system
in your home dir create a folder named ipw2200wireless

Step 1 go here http://www.atrpms.net/dist/fc3/ipw2200/
Grab the ipw2200 rpm
ipw2200-1.0.0-23.rhfc3.at.i386.rpm
on the same page grab the ipw2200 kmdl same version as above and for the kernel you have (did you update your system yet?)
ipw2200-kmdl-2.6.10-1.770_FC3-1.0.0-23.rhfc3.at.i686.rpm
then go here to get the firmware
http://www.atrpms.net/dist/common/ipw2200-firmware/
ipw2200-firmware-2.2-5.at.noarch.rpm

save them to the folder name ipw2200wireless as mentioned above

open a terminal window
su to root
Code:
cd ipw2200wireless
then
Code:
 rpm -Uvh *.rpm
This will install all of the rpms you just got!
Next tyope exit tthis will get you back to your account
as root (use this command instead of su, USE su - (with a dash) type the following
Code:
chkconfig NetworkManager on
type exit again so your back into your user
enter the following
Code:
NetworkManagerInfo
you should see a sweeping radar in the system tray
it will prompt you for a WEP key if needed if it detects your home network if not click the sweeping radar choose new network
enter your networks name
if you use WEP encryption enter the WEP key as well (asci key)
Just to testyour connection, disable encryption in your router if you have it set up

well, I didn't updated my system yet. I still have kernel 2.6.9-1.667. How can I update it to 2.6.10-1.770?

When I was trying to install those 3 rpm I received message that something is wrong with dependencies - no dependencis yet in my system???

thnx,
jarek

Failed because you don't have the correct kernel installed

as root do the folowing
Copy and paste these intoa terminal window...
Each of the above needs to be installed on a single line and 1 at a time
Code:
rpm --import /usr/share/doc/fedora-release-3/RPM-GPG-KEY*
rpm --import http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/extras/RPM-GPG-KEY-Fedora-Extras
rpm --import http://freshrpms.net/packages/RPM-GPG-KEY.txt
rpm --import http://dag.wieers.com/packages/RPM-GPG-KEY.dag.txt
rpm --import http://atrpms.net/RPM-GPG-KEY.atrpms
Next
Update the system
as root
Code:
yum update
there will be quite a few updates so be patient

Hi, your problem is that you don't have gcc installed....
You can use pre-compiled drivers (Rpms) but anyway, to compile the driver, you
will need compilers. You may use the package manager to install gcc and so on (and the installation cds).

In my case the 'rpm' approach did not work.

Let me know if you have more problems....

using the rpms has worked for many people
Did you get the system updated? that is the reason why it won't install the rpms
plus once you update I believe you will still have to rebuild the source
