Be glad to, but we will need a bit more info. First, what are you trying to install? How are you trying to install it? What is the exact error message?

Might I suggest this command?

vi /home/JD/Downloads/linux-wlan-ng-0.2.0/README

IT says to run "make config" first. Then 'make all', then 'make install'.

Now why the author did not use the '/.configure' standard, I don't know... Aggravating.

The Answers are out there, you've just got to know how to find them.
