    Could you elaborate on that please?

    Like, do I type ./configure ndiswrapper-0.10

    or what?

    Sorry, I just started using Linux Thursday.

    use the cd command (Change Directory) to the directory ndiswrapper has been extracted to (ex /home/qub333/ndiswrapper) and type ./configure then make then make install

    [tyler@localhost tyler]$ cd ndiswrapper-0.10
    [tyler@localhost ndiswrapper-0.10]$ ./configure
    bash: ./configure: No such file or directory
    ---

    I extracted it, and than changed to the directory it was in like above. Than I did ./configure adn it said no file or directory. WTF?

    well i think i see the problem: according to the output of make install, you don't have gcc (which is a common c-compiler installed) you need to have a compiler installed to compile programs from source, so i suggest you go download a pre-compiled binary of gcc (like an rpm) and try ndiswrapper again
    let me know if this solves anything and feel free to let me know if you have any other questions!
    good luck

    yup yup i agree, in which case, you need to go to the install packages (somewhere) in the menu ... i used to have fedora core 2. and in there you will need to install the developement packages. make sure you have all your cds at the ready!

    just make sure you go into the dir and type:
    ./configure (sometimes the file doesnt exist which is fine, just skip)
    make
    su (if not already su)
    make install

    just to edit:

    looking at the output of your tar extraction configure DOESNT exist in which case, type make to use the Makefile. You should always read the INSTALL file just to make sure!!!!

    gedit INSTALL (just in case you didnt know! )

    tyrannicide:or you could just download gcc from the internet as an rpm
    chris:with nidswrapper there's no ./configure or make, just fyi

    actually, a safer way to do that would be to do
    Code:
    cat INSTALL | less
    or
    cat INSTALL | more
    or
    less INSTALL
    so you don't end up acidentally messing something up, plus it runs quicker
