[root@localhost ndiswrapper-1.42]# ndiswrapper -i rt2500usb.inf

everytime i get this done ndiswrapper is installed, although my router isnt working . but then i will exit the terminal and when i go back ndiswrapper doesnt exist anymore, its like i never installed it but i did, many times? i think what i highlighted in red is the problem because ive never seen that before. any help would be greatly appreciated!

what happened to "depmod -a" and "modprobe ndiswrapper"?
http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/m...p/Installation

http://linuxfornewbies.org/forum/ind...topic,3.0.html
... though I am puzzled that urpmi ndiswrapper isn't used, is there something wrong with the mandriva package?

Addressing that warning: it appears that Module.symvers is missing!
http://mandrivausers.org/lofiversion...hp/t22893.html
... this site is specific to your problem. It tells you how to get that file in the right place. Kind-of.

thing is, I always thought that Module.symvers was generated by the module build process...
