when attempting to install a linux driver for:


I tried to look for error code "132" as it says in the error message above inside the Makefile however there were no error codes defined in the makefile.

Is there something I am doing terribly wrong here? Perhaps this particular wifi dongle doesn't have a driver for ARM boards like Raspberry Pi?

  • I'm installing what's on the CD under the "Linux" directory. But to be honest, I'm not certain if it's for ARM. Separately I'm having trouble finding the driver downoads website for this particular Esky dongle. Would appreciate it if someone could direct me there as well. Commented Aug 19, 2012 at 13:57

  • I would suggest looking for a reputable free (as in freedom) driver for the device. Not a manufacturer one and certainly not one that's trying to override system security in a script.
