ndiswrapper probelms [WMP54GS|SuSE10.2]
All was fine. Then i installed the driver using (what i think was) a corrupt INF file. when i typed 'iwlist' or something along the lines of that I only got my ethernet controllers. i checked with 'dmesg' and found that it had trouble starting my wlan controller.
So I read around some more and came upon a post where the guy was installing my card (WMP54GS).
by following his instructions I should have downloaded ndiswrapper 0.11 or ndiswrapper 0.12. I confirmed this fact by checking the ndiswrapper wiki where they explicitly told me to use that older version of ndiswrapper.
So I got ndis 0.12, went in SUSE, ran 'make uninstall' twice, then installed ndis 0.12 like I installed 1.37 previously. Only thing is, this time after running both the make and make install commands I got something ALONG THE LINES OF
make: *** [/home/aemkmmg/ndiswrapper-0.12/driver/ntoskernel.o] Error 1 make: *** [_module_/home/aemkmmg/ndiswrapper-0.12/driver] Error 2 make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-184.108.40.206-3-386' make: *** [default] Error 2 make: Leaving directory `/home/aemkmmg/ndiswrapper-0.12/driver' make: *** [build-modules] Error 2 make: Leaving directory `/home/aemkmmg/ndiswrapper-0.12' make: *** [binary] Error 2 make: Leaving directory `/home/aemkmmg/ndiswrapper-0.12' make: *** [deb] Error 2
if you need the actual log file I can post that later
I kept getting that [Error 2]. WTF is [Error 2]? I searched everywhere and couldn't find a single trace as to what that meant?
also when I ran the command 'ndiswrapper' it kept telling me how it is not found as an application or file, so i knew it didnt install
Anyone know how to fix this?
'make uninstall' dosn't work with the older versions of ndis so I couldn't really do anything except re-extract and run 'make install' again after I got that error. So now things might be really FKed up.
Should I try to install ndis 0.11 instead? perhaps that will work?
Help is much appreciated, thanks
