Hi Folks, after much trawling around on how to get the kernel headers recognisable by ndiswrappers' makefile I got nndiswrapper installed and got it to find my win XP driver files for a wg311v3 netgear wireless card. However when I have a look at the dmesg output by typing:
dmesg | grep ndiswrapper
"ndiswrapper version 1.26 loaded (preempt=no,smp=yes)
ndiswrapper (check_nt_hdr:153): kernel is 64-bit, but Windows driver is not 64-bit;bad magic: 010B
ndiswrapper (load_sys_files:216): couldn't prepare driver 'wg311v3'
ndiswrapper (load_wrap_driver:118): loadndiswrapper failed (65280); check system log for messages from 'loadndisdriver'
usbcore: registered new driver ndiswrapper
how do I fix this ?
As I understand it the system should be able to cope with i386 stuff but how to I tell it to do so ?
Is there something else I should install first ?
How/where can I find out more about using i386 stuff on my 64 bit box?
uname -rm gives "2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 x86_64"
Any help greatly appreciated
Lotsa luck from Jenc the newbie going nuts!
