Hi. Having problems with ndiswrapper and getting my wifi working...
I have been experimenting with ndiswrapper and one of my earlier experiments got me stuck with this:
[root@c-8ac1e355 hjortur]# ndiswrapper -l
ls: /etc/ndiswrapper/broadcom: No such file or directory
ls: bcm-43xx.exe: No such file or directory
broadcom bcm-43xx.exe invalid driver!
[root@c-8ac1e355 hjortur]# ndiswrapper -e broadcom bcm-43xx.exe
Usage: ndiswrapper OPTION
Manage ndis drivers for ndiswrapper.
-i inffile Install driver described by 'inffile'
-d devid driver Use installed 'driver' for 'devid'
-e driver Remove 'driver'
-l List installed drivers
-m Write configuration for modprobe
-da Write module alias configuration for all devices
-di Write module install configuration for all devices
-v Report version information
where 'devid' is either PCIID or USBID of the form XXXX:XXXX
well anyway...no matter what I do I can't get rid of this invalid driver and some strange ls: /etc/ndiswrapper/broadcom keeps sticking to the output....
