the file i downloaded is the last one: Linux driver for kernel 2.4.x (Support x86 and x64) from site 6 hk1
One of the issues already addressed is that the incorrect driver is being used
The newer versions of mint are past the Linux 2.4x kernels..
--we are now at Linux kernel 3.xx
And nobody has asked you this, but can you type in a terminal
- Code: Select all
--to show the kernel name of your installed OS..
Also for ubuntu/Mint, there is a build essential package, that gets enough kernel headers to allow compilation from source files, the default ubuntu installation didn't offer that option (being able to compile from source)
--I expect they wanted everyone simply to use their package manager, and click & choose for install or uninstall, and they have kept updating the look and options, just as Mint has done with their package manager version (on the GUI, desktop mode)
