Having trouble installing Ndiswrapper, Please help!
Hey there, I was recently trying to get my wireless adapter working with linux, however, since i still needed the drivers, I decided to install Ndiswrapper. I've been looking all over the internet, and I've managed to unpack it to a folder, however whenever I try to install it, I get "Can't find kernel build files in /lib/modules/....." I've looked into this error, and some sites say that I need to install the latest kernel, and the latest kernel-devel. Currently I have a 126.96.36.199 Kernel, and am using fedora. (as far as i know, I don't have a kernel-devel)
I have a few questions: :confused:
A.) Where can I download the latest kernel?
B.) Once downloaded, how can I install it?(please be specific, as I've had fedora for a couple days, and don't know too many terminal commands ;)
D.)Where can I download it?
E.) How would I install it?
Also, on a side note, what's the equivalent of the windows .exe file in linux?
And lastly, (please don't be offended ;)
Why is the process for installing most of these programs so seemingly difficult?
Thanks for all of your help
P.S Sorry for my Linux-Noobishness.
