Help installing ndisgtk on Linpus Lite...?
 
hi everyone

im completely new to linux so apologies if this is a stupid question :/

i am trying to install ndisgtk and finding it impossible ( i have no idea what im doing ) :(

i am aware that ndisgtk is the GUI version of ndiswrapper which is why i chose to download it as im not familiar with the terminal/commands.

i have the file ndisgtk-0.8.3.tar.gz on a floppy disk...heres where im stuck...how/where do i copy the file to? how do i unzip it? ...im confused :(
i tried to get the ndisg file onto synaptic package manager but no luck

any help would be appreciated thanks

copy the file to your home directory
then cd to where you copied the file
Code:

tar -xvzf ndisgtk-0.8.3.tar.gz
cd ndisgtk-0.8.3

read the readme ans install files

In general it is
Code:

./configure
make
sudo make install

Hi Repo

...i couldnt find any notes on ndistgk..as i said before im new to linux ...so i ended up installing ndiswrapper (found a friendly step by step guide) not sure how but i managed to install the drivers for my wireless card (the reason i needed ndis in the first place)

Drivers installed fine...card was recognized it said "connected" but when i tried browsing i got the "no server found" error so was stuck for a while...EVENTUALLY after some trial and error got it working :)

So all is working except....my connection wont automatically start when i start up (even though i have ticked the "auto start on boot") this is not that bigger issue...i can live with it.

So i was happy for a short while heh...but now my ff keeps crashing...ive tried a few things but it still crashes :/

so ive given up heh....i might give puppy a go...we'll see

anyways thanks for your help Repo :)
