ndiswrapper and kernel version
After getting some advice in the thread below, I thought ndiswrapper
would probably be useful when I go get a wireless card. However the
instructions say this:
"You need a recent kernel (at least 2.6.6 or 2.4.26) with source."
Now, I'm running Red Hat 9 and kernel 2.4.20-13.9. I went and
looked on updates.redhat.com and the most recent kernel version
there is 2.4.20-31.9.
1. Find some more recent kernel version in RPM form. But where? And
is this compatible with the rest of my RH9 system?
2. Find a more recent kernel in source form and compile it. Ooh, scary.
Never done that before.
3. Grab an older version of ndiswrapper which might be more compatible
with my kernel. How would I know how far back to go? And, is this a
bad idea because newer versions fix bugs?
4. Just ignore the warning. Surely some people are running RH9 with
Advice? Although I've been using this system for a while I don't really maintain it, so I won't be able to do anything too complicated on my own.
