missing bzImage file


Hey,

I'm running SUSE linux 10.1 with v2.6.16.13 kernel. I'm trying to install ndiswrapper from scratch which i've downloaded from sourceforge. When I try to "make" file it gives me an error saying

***Missing file: arch/i386/boot/bzImage
***You need to run "make" before "make install"

anyone know whats up?

Other penguins only can say that your problem is:

***Missing file: arch/i386/boot/bzImage
***You need to run "make" before "make install"

unless you post more detailed description.

Happy penguins.

Well this is the exact message I get. I have the latest ndiswrapper decompressed into a temp folder, and i'm trying to compile it with the make command. Pretty much what is shown below is what I get. Don't know what else to tell you. Thanks in advance.


make -C driver install
make[1]: Entering directory `/tmp/ndiswrapper install 1/ndiswrapper-1.23/driver'
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.16.13-4-smp/build SUBDIRS=/tmp/ndiswrapper install 1/ndiswrapper-1.23/driver
make[2]: Entering directory `/usr/src/linux-2.6.16.13-4-obj/i386/smp'
make -C ../../../linux-2.6.16.13-4 O=../linux-2.6.16.13-4-obj/i386/smp install
sh /usr/src/linux-2.6.16.13-4/arch/i386/boot/install.sh 2.6.16.13-4-smp arch/i386/boot/bzImage System.map "/boot"

Stupid question, did you run make before you ran make install?

./configure &&
make

su

make install

Hi,

The command causing error looks like "kernel install" command!?!?!

It was long ago when I installed nidswrapper, so many things have been changed. And I always have custom kernel.

So, I only can make guess, apology...

what happens if:
1. you compile your custom kernel?
2. you make clean and make again with ndiswrapper.

Or anything else written in README file??

Happy penguins.

apologies for not helpful post.
