I get the following error about date time when making new driver file found 1/2016 on website of alfa.

Makefile:10: *** mixed implicit and normal rules: deprecated syntax

How can I correct this?

This is more a warning than an error, really.

The compiler is saying that this specific macro introduces into the source code a compile-time constant (the exact time it was built) meaning that if someone else built that same code base, they'd get a different binary. From a software management perspective, this is unwanted but for you in practical terms, it doesn't matter at all.

Look at this ubuntu question on what you need to do to fix the issue.

Note that you can also set CFLAGS as an environment variable which should typically get picked up by a Makefile, so you might be able to get away with just

CFLAGS="-Wno-error=date-time" make

Wow thanks for replying!!!!!!

I will read the link you gave me.

This was the output after changing the cflags

any other feedback is vary welcome!
