    you have the 2.6.20 kernel wish is not the default Slack kernel,so when you configure and compile it have you did make headers_install to the install the needed header file ,for the moment the header files installed are the 2.4.x.

    No you don't have, please could you give me exactly from where you get vmmon just to download and compile it on one of our machines (please the same version as you) , in case this will go without problem so we can start thinking about some missing modules / header file version !

    Cheers,
    Ali.

    Ah yes,you have a problem in your kernel,since the compiling of ndiswrapper is very easy and very rare to have a problem,so you miss something please make sure that you have the kernel source in /usr/src/linux ,and go there and do
    make headers_install.

    that's very clear that you have a kernel problem ,since the compilation for me went without any problem

    Cheers,
    Ali
