It is set to m. Would it be simple to have it set to y?
In any case:
So I did sudo modprobe iwlegacy
and indeed now in lsmod that module shows up
I can run sudo ifonfig wlan0 up.
However neither wicd nor (k)networkmanager show the wireless device!
So I still don't have wifi.

Ok since it was in /usr/src
it looked logical. So if I change the ownership of the kernel source
and run the make commands, should I run just the make install commands
and root and let the permissions of the executable as they are?
Thanks for your help.
