I keep getting this error :

Code:
linux:~ # modprobe ndiswrapper
FATAL: Could not open '/lib/modules/2.6.13-15.7-default/extra/ndiswrapper.ko': No such file or directory
Please help me... I really need to get this wireless working, and I really like SuSE Linux (just switched to linux from windows)

The point seems to find the sources for that or another kernel in Suse. I've had the same problem no matter what kernel I use (always Suse), whether it is 9.0, 9.1, 9.3, 10.xxx, the matter is ndiswrapper as well another programs, in order to be compiled, need the damn sources (I think anything.c or something.h, like any other decent program).

Can anybody answer where are the damn sources, or how to instal or sete, to make the compilation of those program work.

Actually, I downloaded the source from kernel.org for the Suse 8.2 (in this time I am trying) and there is no way at the time to "make" inside ...\ndiswrapper\

I hate those rpms, but I dont know if they are the answer.

Can anybody tell me how to deal with these sources? regarding the compilation of ndiswrapper, of course.

MezzaMorta,

Did you install the ndiswrapper from the SuSE cds? This message is telling you that it can't find the module.

I also think you might get this error if you don't run "ndiswrapper -m" after you have installed the driver for the card. ndiswrapper -n installs the ndis wrapper into the kernel.

I had that same problem but if you run "ndiswraper -m" and reboot, ndiswrapper works fine.
