Fatal Error install
I am not sure if this goes here but Ubuntu is part debian but if this is the wrong place I am sry. I was trying to install ndiswrapper and got it working up until the point where I type in modprobe ndiswrapper then I get an error saying:
FATAL: Error inserting ndiswrapper )/lib/modules/126.96.36.199-3-386/kernel/drivers/net/ndiswrapper/ndiswrapper.ko): Invalid module format
I am a noob to linux so I looked here to see if others were having probs like this but only found one case close to my error and the answer was to recompile the kernel. But when I tried to recompile the kernel I kept getting errors of missing files, so I decided to reinstall but during the install I noticed that there were a couple fatal errors about not being able to write to a .ko file in the lib/modules/188.8.131.52-3-386 .... directories (sry could not get the full errors becuase they did not stay on the screen long). I got 2 or three of these error but it still loads and ubuntu runs fine as far as I can tell other then not finding some files. I am not sure if it is something I am doing wrong or my laptop. I have a friend who has the same laptop and is running ubuntu with ndiswrapper jsut fine. Thanks in advance and I hope the wording is not too confusing.
