Wireless installtion problem with ndiswrapper


I tried to compile the ndiswrapper tar ball on my Fedora 14-64 bit, but it failed. The errors that it gave was:
Code:

My wireless driver is bcm4313. Even its installation is failing. What shall I do?

Which version of kernel do you have? It will not compile with some of them, you can try newer or older.

You do not need ndiswrapper for this wireless card. The broadcom wl staging driver should support it.

My kernel is 2.6.35.6-45.fc14.x86_64.

After doing a bit of research, I ended up on Broadcom site. It solved the problem.
thanks for the reply, btw.
