I have another problem now. After having downloaded teh source from internet and installing it I soon realised that the link between two of the directories didnt fit the right format. So i changed it and then ran the build rpm thing like the ndiswrapper install thing says. The first one i tried seemed to do absolutely nothing. So I tried the rpmbuild one instead and that wrote four rpm files which i installed with no problems. but then when I ran the "modprobe ndiswrapper" it now comes up with an error message (check out the quote below):
What I installed (which was made):
The error when I ran "modprobe ndiswrapper":
FATAL: Error inserting ndiswrapper (/lib/modules/2.6.13-1.1526_FC4.stk16smp/misc/ndiswrapper.ko): Invalid module format
...having just looked it up it seems this is down to kernel/ndiswrapper compilation problems. I downloaded a pre-compiled kernel, installed it. Then went back to the same website and got the source code version, then compiled ndiswrapper with that.
This is where i got the kernel from:
The one i downloaded and then installed is: 2.6.13-1.1526_FC4smp
and the one i downloaded, installed and before having compiled ndiswrapper was: Development (of the same one).
I think im gonna try downloading and installing 2.6.13-1.1526_FC4 becuase i have no idea what the spm stands for!
btw where is the source located?.... there seem to be two dirs the tutorials are always on about.
