Lenovo Yoga 2 & Ubuntu 14.04 WiFi issue – make nothing to be done for all

*Update*

The driver issue that caused this problem has been fixed in the latest linux kernel. You should consider using Ubuntu 14.10 or higher with this notebook.

 

Alright, So I just spent a reasonable amount of time banging my head against the wall on this one, despite some pretty decent documentation existing on the subject. Please Note this is only for the Intel 7260 Non-Pro version of the Lenovo Yoga 2 . My main source was here:

So, follow Haohe’s walkthrough, BUT when you get to the part where you create the Makefile, make sure to correct the formatting that gets goofed up on the website. You’ll know the formatting is wrong because you will get the error:

“make nothing to be done for all”

To correct this, use the fix posted by osor found on this page:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-kernel-70/simple-makefile-error-all-nothing-need-to-be-done-600403/

(just be sure to change the filename to match the object you’re making.

I’d repost the fix here, but you’re better off following the link as I don’t want to find out I got the format goofed up on my webpage!
