The long story is I am trying to get ndiswrapper installed and working in mandrake 10 official. 10 official comes with ndiswrapper on one of the install cd and I used the install program to place it on the computer. It placed the following files in two directories.
In /usr/src/linux-2.6.3-7mdk/3rdparty/ndiswrapper there are the following files:
casemap.h Kconfig loader.h misc_funcs.c ndis.h winsyms.c wrapper.c
coffpe.h loader.c Makefile ndis.c proc.c winsyms.h wrapper.h
In /lib/modules/2.6.3-7mdk/kernel/3rdparty/ndiswrapper there are the following files:
Okay so far so good. Now I try to run "make install" in either of these directories where ndiswrapper files were placed with root privaledges and I get the error message:
"make: *** No rule to make target `install'. Stop."
Thinking I must have a link missing I went to the install cds and installed sources for 2.6.3-7 (this is the kernel "uname-r" told me I had). It placed the following files in the respective places.
In /usr/src I have the following three folders including one folder link
linux linux-2.6.3-7mdk RPM (where “linux” is a folder that points to /usr/src/linux-2.6.3-7mdk)
These are the files and folder in /usr/src/linux-2.6.3-7mdk/kernel:
acct.c extable.c module.c ptrace.c time.c
capability.c fork.c panic.c rcupdate.c timer.c
compat.c futex.c params.c resource.c uid16.c
configs.c intermodule.c pid.c sched.c user.c
cpu.c itimer.c posix-timers.c signal.c workqueue.c
dma.c kallsyms.c power softirq.c
exec_domain.c kmod.c printk.c sys.c
exit.c Makefile profile.c sysctl.c
and “power” is a folder with the following files:
console.c Kconfig Makefile pmdisk.c poweroff.c swsusp.c
disk.c main.c pm.c power.h process.c
Not being a linux master by any streach of the imagination it looked liked I was good to go. So I tried "make install". But as I said at the top of the post when I “make install” in usr/src/linux-2.6.3-7mdk/3rdparty/ndiswrapper or /lib/modules/2.6.3-7mdk/kernel/3rdparty/ndiswrapper it gives me the error message:
make: *** No rule to make target `install'. Stop.
I re-installed ndiswrapper hoping after a re-install it would work. But I got the same message. Heh, obviously I have a long way to go to get ndiswrapper to work with my linksys wmp11 v 2.7
But the first step is being able to "make install" so that I can execute the command ndiswrapper -i<path of inf file>. And no this command does not work either. Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
