Ok so I emailed yesterday about this driver in ubuntu to which RIchard
kindly replied.  I did try ubuntu 13.04 and the driver was already built
in.  However I really want to have a fiddle with Kali linux which is the
new Backtrack.

Everything installs fine - except the ar8161 eth card.  Ive followed this
using git to get it installed but Im running into problems Ill post my
errors a little below.

OK heres the instructions of what to do:


To build for linux you will need a few trees. We have scripts to let you
get all that you need:

cd ~
git clone git://github.com/mcgrof/compat.git
cd compat

cd ~
mkdir unified/
git clone git://github.com/mcgrof/alx.git

cd alx
./make linux

 However when I try to do the

make linux

THis is what I get:

make linux

Can anyone point me in the right direction please?
