Compiling...


I just got ndiswrapper, and I was wondering how to install it on Backtrack2 linux. I've never installed anything on linux.

Thanks in advance,
Will

Extract it, then in the main directory, run:
Code:
./configure
make
make install
Then to set it up:
Code:
ndiswrapper -i /path/to/windowsdriver.inf
ndiswrapper -l (to be sure the card is seen)
modprobe ndiswrapper (to load the driver)
ifconfig -a (to be sure wlan0 shows up)
