  • Running the WiFi PCI Express mini card Intel 4965AGN on iMX6 Rex

    Hello,

    I'm trying to install the PCIE card to my iMX6 Rex by following the tutorial you have in the video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FG6h3ES1REE) and here (http://www.imx6rex.com/software/imx6...sts/#wifi_4965).

    Unfortunately, whenever I try to do the "make" command, it gives me this error "make: *** No rule to make target `menuconfig'. Stop."

    I've tried to look it up online on what might be the problem, and some of the solutions I have found is downloading a kernel from kernel.org. Now I don't want to overwrite the existing kernel in my iMX6 Rex just yet so I want to make sure if it's okay to do just that and what would be the best version of the kernel should I install to my Rex?

    Note: When I checked /usr/src directory for any linux folder as what some other solutions I've seen online, it came out empty and could not find the "makefile" they were talking about.

    Please advise.

    Thanks,

    Paul

    I just realized that since I don't have any internet access for the Rex module yet, I can not download the kernel from kernel.org. Any suggestions?

      Paul, I am just finishing a course about how to compile uBoot, Kernel and YOCTO. That course could help you a lot to understand what you need to do: http://www.fedevel.com/academy/onlin...nux-and-yocto/

        Hello Robert,

        How much would it cost if it's not for free?

          I am not really sure what you are trying to do. If you would like to compile source code for iMX6 Rex module, have a look here: http://wiki.voipac.com/xwiki/bin/view/imx6+rex/linux

          I have not done it from the VOIPAC source code, but it will be similar (I have not tested the card on Kernel 3.14!). You need to run the "menuconfig" between the commands, like this:

          Code:
          make clean
          make imx_v7_defconfig
          make menuconfig
          make -j4 zImage modules imx6-rexbasic.dtb imx6-rexpro.dtb imx6-rexultra.dtb
          How much would it cost if it's not for free?
          The course price will start from $99
