These are instructions to install the Buffalo WLI-USB-L11G under Ubuntu Breezy 5.10 + Hoary 5.04. I assume you have installed the kernel and have booted into it. You will need some packages from the internet so you have to find out a way to get them.
Download the driver from http://folk.uio.no/oeysteio/orinoco-usb/RPMS/orinoco-usb-0.2.2-2_generic.src.rpm
Install the necessary packages for kernel module compilation with
apt-get install build-essential linux-headers-`uname -r`
Open the rpm with some application like FileRoller or if that doesn't work with unp:
sudo apt-get install rpm unp unp orinoco-usb-0.2.2-2_generic.src.rpm
Unpack the archive to some handy location:
tar jvxf orinoco-0.2.2.tar.bz2
Go into the new directory
make && sudo make install
If there was no error message, you are done. Hotplug should load the module at the next startup. Alternatively, you can load the module by hand with
If you get an error at this point, you may need to unload the old module first
rmmod orinoco hermesand try to load it again.
