i am trying to install ndiswrapper and all guide/walkthrough pages gives me command codes to install programs like for example:


"Download the latest version of the ndiswrapper sources from here and extract it with

tar -zxvf ndiswrapper-version.tar.gz "

Yes, you have to type it and the subsequent commands in a terminal (aka command line interface). I'd suggest to read this thread. Anyway, feel free to post any other question. Cheers

Yes, you have to type it into the terminal. Since you're using FC5, go to "Applications" > "Accessories" > "Terminal" (or you could create a shortcut on your GNOME/KDE menu...it's faster that way for future uses of the terminal).

After you un-tar it, you'll need to type "./configure" (without quotes) to set up the source and to make your "make" file. After it configures, type "make" and then "make install" to create the program.

Good luck!
