error installing the WiFi Drivers

Hi Pedro,

I have:
- DMP - eBox 3310MX-AP Mini PC (Auto Power On, SATA, 3x RS232)"
- DMP - USB WiFi Module (internal) for Ebox 3300MX/3310MX

I have successfully:
- installed ubuntu 10.04
- upgraded to the vortex kernel 2.6.34.10.
- downloaded the drivers for the WiFi module as indicated.

Then things go wrong. The instructions state to run make.
Executing make as run ends with an error:

Adding the directory doesn't help see:

I thought maybe the kernel headers file will create the right environment but no:

Hi Pedro,

To ensure the WiFi Dongle is working I have now installed WinXP as described in the WinXP thread. That worked with one glitch, see my post in that thread and the WiFi Dongle works.
Still no luck with the Ubuntu which is the one I need.

Hi Pedro,

I did a fresh install after the experiment with WinXP, there is a clue to the mayhem with the install of the WiFi Driver see below.
