ndiswrapper - i <driver>.inf or .sys?


I see some threads using .inf and others using .sys. Which is the correct one to use?

Thanks

You install the *.inf file but you need all the other files that come with the windows driver in the same location ie. *.inf *.sys *.bin all in the same folder.

Thanks. One last question:

Will ndiswrapper - i bcmwl5.inf provide all the necessary files for the install or do I need to copy all the files to the ndiswrapper directory from the windows driver patch file I downloaded and exploded under windows when I updated my driver there?

Ok if you do ndiswrapper -i /home/wireless/driver.inf that copies all necessary files to /etc/ndiswrapper and creates the config files for your card, providing as I said all the necessary files are already in /home/wireless.
