ndiswarpper Problems on Fedora Core 1


I just went through the installation of ndiswrapper on my Fedora partitions. Everything said it installed fine, and there were no errors. When I extracted my driver and ran the .inf file through ndiswrapper, it said
Code:
Installing net1152.inf..
but the tutorial said it should say something like
Code:
Installed net1152 drivers
net1152 driver present, hardware present
I disregared this and continued to enter
Code:
modprobe ndiswrapper
The terminal returned tons of errors. The tutorial I followed is located at http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/p...?Installation. I am using Red Hat Fedora Core 1 with the 2.4.22 kernel. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
shimano55

1) What is the output of
Code:
ndiswrapper -l
2) Did you use the winXP-drivers?

3) It would also be helpfull if you would be more specific about the errors when loading ndiswrapper.

I just got ndiswrapper working on my laptop after several attempts, and from my experience, if it doesn't say "Installed xyz drivers
xyz driver present, hardware present", it won't work. Also try using drivers from a different source, that did the trick for me.

Ok.

1) It lists the driver that I installed and says driver and hardware are present.
2) Yes.
3)I got the exact output of the terminal.
Code:
[root@localhost ndiswrapper-1.1]# modprobe ndiswrapper
/lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2115.nptl/misc/ndiswrapper.o: unresolved symbol usb_init
/lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2115.nptl/misc/ndiswrapper.o: unresolved symbol usb_reset_ port
/lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2115.nptl/misc/ndiswrapper.o: unresolved symbol usb_submit _nt_urb
/lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2115.nptl/misc/ndiswrapper.o: unresolved symbol usb_export s
/lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2115.nptl/misc/ndiswrapper.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.22-1 .2115.nptl/misc/ndiswrapper.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2115.nptl/misc/ndiswrapper.o: insmod ndiswrapper failed
Thanks in advance,

P.S. Tell me if you need any more information.

Sorry for the long delay.

It looks like the driver itself works, but the ndiswrapper module has a problem.

My suggestion is to remove the driver from ndiswrapper and try if the module works just by itself.

ndiswrapper -e net1152
modprobe ndiswrapper

if that works, look for another driver, if not ...hmm....

the errors in the output start with usb-problems. Are your usb-modules loaded? Especially usbcore?
