I am running Fedora COre 4 on a Sony VAIO laptop and today i decided to install ndiswrapper. now this worked fine.
I installed the inf driver for my card and that was fine
Symbolic link worked nicely:
ln -s usr/src/redhat /lib/modules/2.6.11-1.1369_FC4/build
Installed ndis drivers when doing ndiswrapper -l :
bcmwl5 driver present, hardware present
then i decided to modprobe ndiswrapper to start up the driver, so i did dmesg to check the modprobe logs.
and i got this error:
ndiswrapper (ndiswrapper_load_driver:93): loadndiswrapper failed (65280); check system log for messages from 'loadndisdriver'
but the drive is present, as ndiswrapper says it is.
So i checked the logs.
Aug 4 17:29:49 localhost loadndisdriver: loadndisdriver: load_driver(333): coudln't find valid drivers files for driver bcmwl5
so im confused now as to what i should do.l
Any help would be greatly appreciated, oh yes and im a noob to linux.
