    AWUS036NHR...yet more

    I know there are a few people that are asking, but nobody seems to actually have an answer. All i can find is people saying "read the install.txt.", "check the website for how-tos"

    The problem is not how to start the installation process....

    There is an Install.sh in the folder! Its pretty simple...even for mac users

    The problem is as follows
    Code:
     CC [M]  /root/#Backups/Drivers/RTL8192CU_8188CUS_8188CE-VAU_linux_v3.0.2164.20110715/driver/rtl8192_8188CU_linux_v3.0.2164.20110715/core/rtw_cmd.o

    compilation terminated.

    make: *** [modules] Error 2
    Compile make driver error: 2, Please check error Mesg
    And before you mention it, i have ran the driver form /root/ and i still get the same issue, just ran this from my #backups folder to get the error msg

    I downloaded the latest driver from the alfa website. Unpacked it, and ran the install.sh in terminal. I think this is telling me that the make file cant find the required files/fodlers to edit/replace. Short of learning to script to re-write the make file i am lost...

    I check the alfa site again and found THIS. Its a set of instructions for installing the NHR on backtrack 5. Obv this cant be used for kali as their based on 2 totally seperate distros.

    But i wonder if someone out there can use this to help us get this supposedly great usb adapter working.

    Yeah i think i found this issue when i tried to install the drivers a while back on my old machine, I'm not 100% sure but i think it was that the header "smp_lock.h" is missing because it was obsolete in the new 3.x kernels and was deprecated late in the2.x kernel series. I think that's the issue, im not sure. But I think that's why it is missing.

    So if you are going to use this script it would best be on 2.6.x kernel, would be my best guess.

    Its kali. So obviously i am installing as root.

    bobdole is right its the "smp_lock.h" that gets flagged up as missing or not found. But i dont know enough to figure out how to solve this issue.

    There is no install instructions in the driver folder other than click the install.sh. It was a known issue with Backtrack 5 to the point that ALFA`s own website has instructions on correct installation, but this is kali and no longer ubuntu based so that fix doesn`t work

    yes i have updated with apt-get, thats the first thing to try with any error.
    i am cd`d into the correct directory, i have tried using the make file and tried using the install.sh
    i have tried cd into the install.sh`s directory, the make files directory, i have ran the install.sh as exec, i have ran it from cd to its directory and i have tried dragging it into the terminal..

    I dont get what your saying "Your post is very vage and not info other then it doesn't work"

    Thats the exact point, i have tried to install it, both from the install.sh and from the make file as i have said. i gave a copy of the error code, and have mentioned that it was a known error on backtrack 5 and therefore common sense dictates that its still an error on kali too. i was hoping someone with a bit more knowlege than me could look at the help page i have refferenced from ALFA`s website and maybe figure out a guide to making this thing work on kali

    hello

    change osdep_service.h (line 49) linux/smp_lock.h to linux/smp.h

    Change file rtw_io.h (line 36) linux/smp_lock.h to linux/smp.h
