Having troubles with ndiswrapper again.

I have Fedora 5 with 16k kernel ( update from linuxant)
used yum to download and automatically install kmod-ndiswrapper.
It's ok with driver and device , but when i do modprobe it says that no such modul installed , and i've done all that write config for modprobe [-m] and aliases [-a].
When i do -a it says Module alias information is stored in /etc/modprobe.d/ndiswrapper;
copy it to where udev expects it and configure udev.

If someone can help me - I would gladly receive the help.

Thank you.

I recently had a very similar problem with PCLinuxOS 0.92. After a marathon Google session I found that if you update your kernel then you may also have to update your version of ndiswrapper; when I did this it worked like a charm. Maybe the version of ndiswrapper you're using no longer matches your updated kernel; if so then you may have to update to a newer version.

I'll try to. But the last version of ndiswrapper is not going to install. And the kmod one from yum installs itself easily.

if you have the kernel source and header installed,
if you remove any old version of ndiswrapper
including kmod-ndiswrapper
delete /etc/ndiswrapper

and proceed from the latest ndiswrapper tarball
untar, compile, ndis -i, ndis -l, depmod -a, modprobe ndis,
Would this not work?
I know it is the long way to do it, but actually it is not too bad
