FATAL: Error inserting ndiswrapper


Probably every situation is different, but some one else may be having the same problem out there with mandriva LE2005 and ndiswrapper.

I installed ndiswrapper, I ran modprobe, and I got the famous error :

FATAL: Error inserting ndiswrapper (/lib/modules/2.6.11-6mdksmp/misc/ndiswrapper.ko): Operation not permitted

I ran ndiswrapper -e ndiswrapper.ko, and bingo! This solve the problem. modprobe ndiswrapper did not complain anymore, as a matter of fact, I am writing this messages using my wireless card.

The machine is an HP laptop ZD7260.

ndiswrapper must have the driver loaded before the module is loaded. Also, "operation not permitted" sounds like you was not root when modprobing. Anyway, great that it worked out for you.

Not sure what you are trying to do. But have you done this?

Code:
# ndiswrapper -i driver.inf
# ndiswrapper -l
# modprobe ndiswrapper
Usually this is enough. The driver should be running by now, and you can check out if it's working by looking at ifconfig and iwconfig (make sure you have installed wireless-tools). The driver.inf file is the inf file for your driver found on the Windows CD.

Good luck.

Im having a problem with that too.

When I try that ndiswrapper -l command I get that inffile:invalid driver but my driver for my device is installed and it acknowledges the device is present.

When I try the ndiswrapper -e ndiswrapper.ko i get that there is no such file.

help?

Hi this a brainstrom problem for me....

i've got a wireless pcmcia with a marvell chipset ( i already knew that they aren't compatible with linux) and after researching on google.com/linux i manage to make the install of the driver with ndiswrapper 1.34. but somehow when i try to config the hardware on MCC it says cannot find ndiswrapper interface...

edit you *.inf file

i found that my netwg121.inf had bad characters when specifying the netwg121nd5.sys file under the ServiceBinary definition

hence when i looked in the /etc/ndiswrapper/netwg121 directory where the "ndiswrapper -i netwg121.inf" put everything for me, there was only a *.inf file and not any *.conf or *.sys files there

after i fixed the netwg121.inf file, then ndiswrapper -i worked just fine
