adding to mandriva

Recommended Posts

HELP>>>>>

I'm a complete Linux newbe and have loaded Mandriva onto an old PC. I fitted a Wifi card to the PC and dragged up a driver for it in the form of a .tar.gz file. Managed to figure out how to access the tar files but have run into a complication.... There doesn't appear to be any make command and also no compiler loaded.???????

NEVER, EVER use such files on your Linux distro. It's almost sure you will break it beyond repair.

Always use your distro's PMS. It's about 99.9% sure that if there ***IS*** a driver for your wi-fi, you will find it there.
