    prob with ndiswrapper on FC6


    Hello! I have been trying to get ndiswrapper to work on my Fedora Core 6, to no avail... anybody has any tips?

    1-Installed Kernel-devel
    (as needed for installation on FC. See http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/m...dex.php/Fedora)

    2-Installed appropriate 16K stack kernel update for Linuxant at http://www.linuxant.com/driverloader.../downloads.php
    (as needed for installation on FC. See http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/m...dex.php/Fedora)

    [root@localhost pre-ndis]# rpm -qa | grep kernel
    kernel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.stk16
    kernel-devel-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6
    kernel-headers-2.6.18-1.2798.fc6

    3-Downloaded ndiswrapper

    [root@localhost ndiswrapper-1.37]# make distclean
    (lots of info, no error messages)

    [root@localhost ndiswrapper-1.37]# make
    make -C driver
    make[1]: Entering directory `/root/ndiswrapper-1.37/driver'
    Can't find kernel build files in /lib/modules/2.6.18-1.2798.fc6.stk16/build;
    give the path to kernel build directory with
    KBUILD=<path> argument to make
    make[1]: *** [prereq_check] Error 1
    make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/ndiswrapper-1.37/driver'
    make: *** [all] Error 2

    Again, any help would be SO appreciated

    If you import the Livna repository, you can use yum to install it and it should take care of all the dependencies for you. Try this:
    Code:
    $rpm -ivh http://rpm.livna.org/livna-release-6.rpm
    #yum -y install ndiswrapper
    Note: the second command should be executed as root.

    Thanks for replying!
    The thing is, I have no internet access when on linux, i depend 100% on wireless to access internet. I have to switch back/forth from windows to try any solutions (because the wireless does work in windows, not on my FC6 yet)
