I am a complete noob, completely new to linux.
Please Help.

I have downloaded file "OrangePI-Kernel" and extracted to desktop of orangepi os.
Edited the symlink present in "/lib/modules/3.4.39-01-lobo/build" to  /home/orangepi/Desktop/OrangePI-Kernel/linux-3.4using following command
ln -s  /home/orangepi/Desktop/OrangePI-Kernel/linux-3.4 build
ln -s  /home/orangepi/Desktop/OrangePI-Kernel/linux-3.4 source

downloaded the driver of rtl8192cu from website to orangepi desktop

and ran "make" command i am getting following error

make[1]: Entering directory '/home/orangepi/Desktop/OrangePI-Kernel/linux-3.4'
Makefile:567: /home/orangepi/Desktop/OrangePI-Kernel/linux-3.4/arch/armv7l/Makefile: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** No rule to make target '/home/orangepi/Desktop/OrangePI-Kernel/linux-3.4/arch/armv7l/Makefile'.  Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/orangepi/Desktop/OrangePI-Kernel/linux-3.4'
Makefile:220: recipe for target 'modules' failed
make: *** [modules] Error 2
