Unhappy dwl-g122 Dlink USB , Mandrake 10.1 and Ndiswrapper

Hi people. heres my dilema.

dwl-g122 Dlink USB , Mandrake 10.1 and Ndiswrapper

For the last 4 days, I have been trying at installing ndiswrapper non stop.. pretty well. I am a linux noob, and have spend several days , hours, minutes , seconds without much sleep and lots of stress!

from reading the posts, installing ndiswrapper should be easy. I have read lots of newsgroups and the ndiswrapper web site and followed its instruction word by word. After installing the kernel source, compiling ndiswrapper, installing the windows xp drivers with ndiswrapper.. i get this error upon modprobe ndiswrapper.


localhost share]# modprobe ndiswrapper
FATAL: Error inserting ndiswrapper (/lib/modules/ Invalid module

( DMESG shows )
b 1-1: new full speed USB device using address 2
ndiswrapper: version magic ' 686 gcc-3.4' should be ' 586 gcc-3.4'
ndiswrapper: version magic ' 686 gcc-3.4' should be ' 586 gcc-3.4'

As mentioned above, I have done the following.

1. fresh mandrake 10.1 official install.
2. URPMI with updated sources and updates
3.Installed the kernel source off the CD #3 ( kernel-source-2.6-
4.followed the instruction as stated in the ndiswrapper web site. word by word. i do not get any errors at all during the install... the only time i get an error is when trying to activate the module by MODPROBE ndiswrapper

when I run the UNAME -R command I get the following:

in my /usr/src/ directory it shows the following
Linux@ linux- RPM

in my /lib/modules directory i see the following:

Where i think the problem is , ndiswrapper is looking for :

ndiswrapper: version magic ' 686 gcc-3.4 but I have this installed:

' 586 gcc-3.4

one is a 586 the other is a 686!

how did this occur? beats me, and I really dont know what to do from this point on.

Will some kind soul please advise me of any other steps I can take or please let me know some hints. I have re isntalled the OS several times making sure its clean. started from scratch several times. followed the ndiswrapper instruction word by word to no avail. I am only getting the error upon modprobing it only. if possible plesae reply via email . i will highly appreciate it.
