Debian Hardware :: Building RTL8187 Driver Fails - Error 2 Code

May 17, 2010

I am fairly new to Linux and have been striking hassles with my AWUS036H (RTL8187) under Debian Lenny. The standard (built in) driver works but reception is pathetic compared to the same card under Backtrack 4 or even Windows 7. I have tried to build drivers which I got from the Alfa website, the Realtek website and also the Linux Wireless project page. All of them fail during Make with an Error 2. I don't have the error in front of me (had to go back to Windows for the moment) but it is identical to the one this guy gets:

darkReaction:/home/georanson# cd /home/georanson/Desktop/Downloads/ndiswrapper-1.52
darkReaction:/home/georanson/Desktop/Downloads/ndiswrapper-1.52# make
make -C driver
make[1]: Entering directory '/home/georanson/Desktop/Downloads/ndiswrapper-1.52/driver'
Makefile:35: *** Cannot find kernel version in /lib/modules/2.6.18-6-686/build, is it configured?.Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/georanson/Desktop/Downloads/ndiswrapper-1.52/driver'
make: *** [all] Error 2

I get the error 2 code and the reference to "kernel version".

Networking :: Rtl8187 Driver Module Load Error (Invalid Module Format)?

Jun 1, 2009

When I try to load the Realtek 8187 modules to kernel using the ./wlan1up command, I get the following error:

[root@localhost rtl8187_linux_26.1025.0328.2007]# ./wlan1up
insmod: error inserting 'ieee80211_crypt-rtl.ko': -1 File exists


Can someone tell me how to correct the "Invalid module format"? I hope that correcting the "Invalid module format" error, I will not have the "Unknown symbol in module" error.

Note: I am using wlan1 for this module as I previously am online with the wlan0 network.The same error occurs if I use ./wlan0up.

Debian :: Recompiling Changed Code When Building Kernel Debs

Jan 15, 2016

How do I force recompilation of the kernel .deb packages. After a small change I make to the sources without having to clean the sources and recompile the whole kernel again?

Code: Select all$ fakeroot make -f debian/rules.gen setup_i386_none_686
$ fakeroot make -f debian/rules.gen binary-arch_i386_none_686 binary-indep

Calling the second command again does not recompile the modified code, just recreates the .deb packages.

If I use:

Code: Select all$ make -f debian/rules clean before the build command, then it will recompile everything which takes ages.

How can I force recompilation of the files/objects I changed (and dependencies)?

I use this guide: [URL] .... ('Building only a single kernel variant' section)

Debian :: Building And Installing WLAN Driver

Sep 4, 2011

I'm fairly new to Linux. I am trying to build and install the drivers for the ASUS USB-N10 wlan usb dongle, using the newest drivers from the Realtek website. I've never used make before on Linux and am running into what are probably some pretty basic problems, but I'm not sure where to look for the answers. I used aptitude to install the "make" and "build-essential" packages. I unpacked the drivers using Archive Manager. I changed to the driver directory and ran "make". It stopped with "No such file or directory." I became superuser and ran make, in case it had permission problems when creating the directory.

Here are the results.
obie@four:~/realtek/rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.$ make
make ARCH=i386 CROSS_COMPILE= -C /lib/modules/2.6.32-5-686/build M=/home/obie/realtek/rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2. modules
make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.32-5-686/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
make: *** [modules] Error 2 .....

I haven't modified the makefile in any way -- it is the same as what I downloaded. I've read posts from other users who have compiled and installed the drivers on Ubuntu with no problem.

The contents of the directory I'm in when I run make are as follows:
drwxrwxrwx 21 obie obie 4096 Apr 1 03:25 .
drwx------ 3 obie obie 4096 Sep 3 22:43 ..

Slackware :: Kdestartupconfig4 Does Not Exist Or Fails - Error Code Is 127?

Nov 21, 2010

I got a problem with my Slackware installation after upgrading to slackware-current. I made a clean 13.1 install on my laptop, then I logged in as root, connected to the net and upgraded to slackware-current. Then, after rebooting, I try to log in to kde as root but I get this error:
kdestartupconfig4 does not exist or fails. The error code is 127. Check your installation. After getting these errors, I made a completely new fresh installation but I got the same errors again.

I even added another user with the adduser command just in case that was the problem but that didn't help. I can't log in to KDE.

Debian Configuration :: Building (Wireless Adapter) Driver From Source

Feb 24, 2010

Apparently, the wireless adapter Realtek 8171 uses the rtl8192se driver, which is currently available only as source from Realtek's website. Is building a driver equal to building a package? Should I follow the same cautions, say these ones?

Debian :: Can't Compile A Driver From Source (make Cmd Fails)

Nov 14, 2010

I'm trying to compile the D-Link netcard driver from the official source, and when I first ran "make," I got an error that "make" couldn't be found. So I installed "apt-get install make," then make told me that it needed gcc, I installed "apt-get install gcc." Now make says: make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.32-5-amd64/build: No such file or directory. Stop. make: *** [LINUX] Error 2 and exits.

I suspect that I need to install some package group which will handle the make and make install (rather than manually trying to fix one hole after another)

Debian Configuration :: NVidia Driver Fails With Built Kernel?

Jul 30, 2011

I've posted here before (viewtopic.php?f=5&t=66322) about problems arising from my attempts to get an nVidia driver to work with my custom kernel. Now those problems are all fixed, and I'm back to where I was: the built kernel boots fine, but the nVidia driver fails.

The custom kernel is as near to the stock one as I can make it, I'm just trying to find a working build process at present, before trying to build a later-version kernel.

I used sgfxi with "-! 40" to build the nVidia driver for my custom kernel; it reported that everything was fine.

Debian Hardware :: RTL8187 - Ndiswrapper Isn't Working (64-bits Version)

Oct 7, 2010

My laptop has a Realtek 8187b usb wireless card. It was working using ndiswrapper and WinXP driver in Debian Sid (32-bits version). I cannot use rtl8187 module because I just can use it beside the access point. With Windows (XP, Seven) I can go to my bedroom and use wireless, with Debian and rtl8187 module I can't. Ndiswrapper solved this problem...

Yesterday I've installed Debian Sid (64-bits version) and ndiswrapper is not working anymore. I've tried a lot of drivers (XP, XP64, Vista, Vista64, Seven, Seven64). XP64 version crashes the computer and I need to reboot to use Debian again. My access point is a D-LINK 2640t.

Debian :: Python-pkg-resources Returns Error Code

Apr 9, 2010

The system is Debian Squeeze/Sid with apt.conf set to Squeeze as the default. Most packages are from Squeeze.

I ran apt-get upgrade and it returned an error-code.

It might be it is this bug: Bug#574153: python-pkg-resources: Missing file leaves it unconfigured

I tried aptitude install -f, to hold it and to remove the package python-pkg-resources, but i am getting told the package would be in a very bad stage, and i should re-install it. That doesn't work.

General :: Install Debian On A AMD K6-2 - Dpkg Error Code 1

Aug 16, 2010

I was triyng to install Debian on a AMD K6-2. I use debootstrap, and installed Lenny, with a kernel linux-image-2.6.26-2-486.

After that apt-get update and apt-get upgrade and I get:

The following packages will be upgraded:

Since release 150, udev requires that support for the CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED feature is disabled in the running kernel.

Please upgrade your kernel before or while upgrading udev.

AT YOUR OWN RISK, you can force the installation of this version of udev WHICH DOES NOT WORK WITH YOUR RUNNING KERNEL AND WILL BREAK YOUR SYSTEM AT THE NEXT REBOOT by creating the /etc/udev/kernel-upgrade file. There is always a safer way to upgrade, do not try this unless you 0understand what you are doing!

Red Hat / Fedora :: Building HP Qlogic NIC Driver On F13

Jun 5, 2011

I have been trying to build the HP Qlogic Netxen, nx_nic, driver on Ferdora13 kernel 2.6.33 but facing with "missing kernel-devel package" errors. As per the instructions in the driver spec, when i try to do rpm build, i get this error. I tried the rpm build installing kernel-devel-i686 pkg but it only shoots back with

error: Failed build dependencies:
kernel-devel-i586 = package is needed by hp-nx_nic-4.0.544-2.src

But when I installed kernel-devel-i586 pkg for kernel 2.6.30 the rpm build continued beyond this error point only to give some other RPM build error atleast to say there was no missing kernel-devel pkg error. Has anybody come across any such error with any other driver? or nx_nic in specific? Does this error mean kernel-devel-i586 a MUST for this driver? As far as I know there is no -i586 pkg for kernel 2.6.33 when i searched in kernel-devel repository! I am not sure, if this forum is right place for posting this question. If not, pls re-direct me to the right one.
