    NDIS on BSD 5.3 with WMP54G v4 wireless card


    Just put together a new BSD 5.3 machine, and compiled NDIS for use with a Linksys WMP54g v4 card; it's a wireless card that uses the Ralink RT2500 chipset.

    Everything works so far; major steps are:

    1. make ndis
    2. copy over NDIS driver files
    3. make if_ndis
    4. kldload ndis

    However, kldload if_ndis returns an error:

    /sbin/kldload -v /usr/src/sys/modules/if_ndis/if_ndis.ko
    kldload: can't load
    link_elf: symbol rt2500_sys_drv_data_start undefined
    /usr/src/sys/modules/if_ndis/if_ndis.ko: No such file or directory
    *** Error code 1

    Stop in /usr/src/sys/modules/if_ndis.

    cd /usr/src/sys/modules/ndis
    make && make install

    cd /usr/src/sys/modules/if_ndis
    cp /path/to/winxpdriver/winxp.inf ./
    cp /path/to/winxpdriver/winxp.sys ./

    cd /usr/src/sys/modules/if_ndis

    ndiscvt -i W32DRIVER.INF -s W32DRIVER.SYS -o ndis_driver_data.h

    make && make install

    kldload ndis
    kldload if_ndis

    i got this from
    http://antadam.blogspot.com/2005_01_...97506652270715

    i made a few changes cause what i put is what i had to do (/usr/src/sys/modules/ not usr/sys/src
    after i got it loaded i went to
    sysinstall
    configured network where ndis0 is loaded now
    i just got done doing mine
