Troublestarting with Ndiswrapper
Hey experts!!...i m a newbie to linux..
I am using Redhat Enterprise Linux 5
I HAVE Netgear WG311v3 802.11g wIRELESS pCI ADAPTER...
it seems i need to use Ndiswrapper to run a wireless network...
i have downloaded and followed installation instructions for ndiswrapper-1.47
make -C driver
make: Entering directory `/home/Snivellus/trash linux/ndiswrapper-1.47/driver'
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.18-8.el5/build SUBDIRS=/home/Snivellus/trash linux/ndiswrapper-1.47/driver
make: Entering directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-8.el5-i686'
make: *** No rule to make target `linux/ndiswrapper-1.47/driver'. Stop.
make: Leaving directory `/usr/src/kernels/2.6.18-8.el5-i686'
make: *** [default] Error 2
make: Leaving directory `/home/Snivellus/trash linux/ndiswrapper-1.47/driver'
make: *** [all] Error 2
Also installation instruction says
ls /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build
should have at least 'include' directory and '.config' file.
i checked....include directory and a lotta others are there....but ".config" file is not there....does that have anything to do with it ..??
and i am not a registered user:: Cud this be the main reason...cuz when i use yum install some software...it sez RHN is not registered...RHN is disabled!...
i dunno wat that means!!...
Plz help me with fidning out the solution!!..
tHANX in advance!!!
New Problem!!...Ndiswrapper installed ...How to connect to network now???
hey guys!!....i dont know what happened...but somehow after playing around with the root user...i was able to install ndiswrapper...but it wont recognise in home user....nyway i continued as root user itself and then i faced the CONFIG_STACKS 4....some error....asking me to recompile and install the kernel so i reinstalled a new kernel version 18.104.22.168 and was able to work it out....evrything installed perfectly
ifconfig wlan0 working
iwlist wlan0 scan also shows desirable results
then after that
how to connect to the net???
according to manual if i dont want WEP protection...
then i shoudl simply type in
ifup wlan0 ..... says wlan0 not found in /etc/...something like that
its not working...any ideas???...
dhclient wlan0 is not working either....no response
Plz help....this is almost 90% progress i guess!!...
thanx in advance!!!
