Hi all, I've seen a post similar to this before, but no answer was given. I posted at the end of it, but no one has responded, and it is an old post so I figured I'd start a new one.
I'm running fedora core 1, successfully installed ndiswrapper, and have it pointing to my Windows drivers successfully as well. The wireless card is a Linksys WPC54G. I know I have the most up to date drivers, and everything should be working just fine, but... when I modprobe ndiswrapper after installing the drivers, I get this error when I type dmesg:
ndiswrapper version 0.7 loaded
Unknown symbol: NDIS.SYS:NdisMAllocateSharedMemoryAsync
Unable to prepare driver
Now, I don't get any errors when I modprobe, only when I dmesg. Right now I'm using the trial version of driverLoader, and my wireless is working ok, but I really don't want to pay for driverLoader when ndiswrapper is available for free.
I've been looking all over the web for any kind of lead, but it doesn't seem like anyone knows the answer. I even tried visiting the irc channel for ndiswrapper, but no one was around to help me (I waited for hours).
Thanks in advance for any answers you may provide.
