Cannot create folders in "File System"
I was recently trying to ndiswrapper-1.7. The instructions I found for installing this aside from other things, had me using the following commands:
tar xvzf ~ndiswrapper-1.7.tar.gz
The result was a bunch of messages saying that the directory did not exist. It appeared to be trying to inzip this file into ndiswrapper-1.7/debian/. I assumed then that it was trying to create these folders in the usr/src/ directory and could not. So I thought I would try to help it out and create them manually. No can do. Under preferences, permissions, it says I do not have ownership. Is this normal?
P.S. Please bear with me if I speak a lot of Windoweze, I am very new to linux.
Thanks for any insight
