Compiling the RTL8187SE Staging Driver

view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – Hey all, Support for the RTL8187SE chipset in Fedora is a pretty old topic, usually resulting in solutions of installing ndiswrapper. Given that a staging driver was released in early 2009 for this particular chipset I was wondering what it would take to compile the driver and install it. Specifically, I'd like to know what the process is in building and installing drivers from source in Linux. I'm not as keen as I should be on nix-craft, but I'm guessing it goes something like: compile the driver from source, patch the kernel source, install the patched kernel. Though, I'm not at al (HowTos)
