I'm sorry I'm being retarded today... :(
I'm going to try the method you posted.
EDIT: OK, I'm back.
When I do 'make', everything goes accordingly.
But when I do 'make install', hell breaks loose.
coleman@ColemanNetwork:~/ndis/ndiswrapper-1.17$ make install
make -C driver install
make: Entering directory `/home/coleman/ndis/ndiswrapper-1.17/driver'
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.15-23-386/build SUBDIRS=/home/coleman/ndis/ndiswrapper-1.17/driver \
make: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.15-23-386'
Building modules, stage 2.
make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.15-23-386'
mkdir -p /lib/modules/2.6.15-23-386/misc
mkdir: cannot create directory `/lib/modules/2.6.15-23-386/misc': Permission denied
make: *** [install] Error 1
make: Leaving directory `/home/coleman/ndis/ndiswrapper-1.17/driver'
make: *** [install] Error 2
Oh and I forgot here's what happens when I use the Wiki:
I had installed and done everything right up to that point. I installed 'make' and everything. I think Ubuntu just has it out for me.
coleman@ColemanNetwork:~/ndis/ndiswrapper-1.17$ fakeroot debian/rules binary-modules
/usr/bin/fakeroot: line 150: debian/rules: No such file or directory
A bit confused with what your following but maybe sudo make install is what you need.
I had realised that when I saw the words "permission" over and over. Thanks, though.
OK. Heres the low down.
I tried it antidrugue's way with his page. Everything installs (with sudo), hip hop hooray, I can see the wireless card in the Network tool. I go to activate it - my entire system freezes up.
Ive had that before but solved it by compliling another version although in your case it may be a conflict with the original ndiswrapper which is installed already. That ubuntu wiki you already tried mentions uninstalling existing stuff before compling your own in section 4. Dont know where you go now though.
