Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Wait....is 5.10 an update of 5.04? If so, then it's probable that ndiswrapper is still being seen from the 5.04 install. You can get instructions on how to remove ndiswrapper from the command line here. http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/m....php/Uninstall Here's what I would do to find out. Remove the ndiswrapper package you've installed with synaptic. If you go to the command line, log in as su, and you can still execute commands like "ndiswrapper -l" then you know you still have the other version of ndiswrapper installed. But, I'm almost certain I've only seen that error associated with two versions of ndiswrapper being installed at the same time.
Wait, did you install your kernel-source files? If not, I would remove the ndiswrapper packages in synaptic, make sure your kernel-source file is installed with the same version number as your kernel, and reinstall the ndiswrapper package. That might fix it.
As DIO suggests, you might try updating the available drivers via synaptic. If you can't locate one, then it's back to ndiswrapper. Yes, you have to have the kernel-source file installed to make ndiswrapper work. Just go into synaptic and search for "kernel." Then, find the "kernel-source" file that matches the kernel version you have installed. If you need to find out what version of the kernel is installed "uname -r" in the terminal will tell you. Then I would try reinstalling ndiswrapper and follow the instructions to install the driver, etc, as you did before. See if that doesn't fix the error you are receiving.
