*ndiswrapper0.8 and wlan driver help needed plz*
I just dl ndiswrapper 0.8 for my linksys wmp54g pci card (i have slack 10 btw).
I have several problems, even though i have been trying to work it out for about an hour:( (even though im a noob)
1. I was told to copy ndiswrapper to my home directory and uncompress it with
however, I get the following error message:
tar -xzvf ndiswrapper-0.8.tar.gz
2. In the ndiswrapper INSTALL file, the the first step in the instructions is this:
tar: ndiswrapper-0.8.tar.gz: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error exit delayed from previous errors
Compile and Install
As root run
> make install
This should compile both the kernel module and the userspace utilities.
The problem with this is that when i type into the terminal, konsole tells me this:
Do I have to include the path to the file? Also, I don't know what userspace utilities are. :S
make: *** No rule to make target 'install'. Stop.
3. The second step in the INSTALL file is to install the windows driver:
Download the Windows XP drivers, upack it and locate the .inf for your card. Run ndiswrapper -i to install the driver.
> ndiswrapper -i </path/to/inffile.inf/>
This copies all necessary files to /etc/ndiswrapper and creates the config files for your card.
But, when i run
ndiswrapper -i /root/wlan-setup-drivers/wmp54g_driver_utility_v1.3.zip/Drivers/BCMWL5.INF
I wont include the other instructions, because they are not relevant at this point (Im not even sure the last instructions were relevant) ,but I appreciate all help :) thx for reading long post
-bash: ndiswrapper: command not found
