I have used Windows for many years and know my way around the OS. I am new to Linux. I recently installed Backtrack 5.1 Gnome, 32 bit for a dual boot on my Dell laptop. I am trying to install the USB drivers for my ALFA USB WiFi AWUS036H adapter.
I am embarrassed to say how many days I have spent trying to install the drivers. Suffice to say, it has been a humbling experience . That having been said, I am determined to succeed.
I went to the ALFA web site and downloaded the Linux Kernal (2.6x) usb drivers (file name: 036H_Linux_26.1040.0820.2010.zip). I unzipped the file to this directory "036H_Linux_26.1040.0820.2010" on my Windows XP machine. I copied the folder to my USB stick and then copied the folder to my BT51 Desktop. This is where the wheels started to fall off . I do not know how to proceed.
According to the documentation I found on the Alfa site, I am supposed use the "sudo make" command, then type "sudo make install".
From my BT51 Desktop, I did the following:
root@bt:~/Desktop/036H_Linux_26.1040.0820.2010# sudo make (I hit enter)
make: *** /lib/modules/188.8.131.52/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
make: *** [all] Error 2
I would deeply appreciate ANY guidance that would help me successfully install these drivers. Attached is a screen shot of the driver folder directory.
