You should be using yum whenever possible. You can ugrade to the latest kernel and kernel devel by yum too. Be suspicious of any howto for fedora which dosn't mention yum.

# yum -y install kmod-ndiswrapper-$(uname -r)
See this thread for more details.

I have installed the latest version of ndiswrapper i.14 on fc5 2080 SMP kernel
when i boot my system i get PCI: cannot allocate mem resource to 0:00:6:00:00 somthing like this wch belongs to my wireless card as i find out from lspci -v.
so modeprobe ndiswrapper hangs finally may be because of that . So can u tell me what can be the solution.

I am assuming you are using FC5 here ... did you follow the link in my last post? Is there a reason you don't want to follow this advice?

"sorry it's not that I didn't want to try your..." is that it? Please use whole words - this is not txt messaging and these abbreviations just make communication difficult. Remember: you want me to help you ... try to make it easy for me to understand you.

Your University probably connects to the web via a proxy. You should see www.fedorafaq.org on how to connect yum through a proxy. It's still for FC4, but yum works the same.

If you had tried it according to the link in post #2, you wouldn't be trying to modprobe ndiswrapper. I cannot help you if you won't follow advice (see sig).

hello Sir,
If you are angry on something I am really sorry for that but if carefully see the thread you asked me to visit says we have to a modeprobe ndiswrapper, there it gave him some FATAL error but to me system just gets restarted.
ANyways thanx for all the help for being kind enough, i have sorted it out in the general way.
thanx
