Fatal error installing ndiswrapper on FC5

I am a complete nube to Linux, so please forgive my ignorance. I am running FC5 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5, and am trying to install ndiswrapper to support my DWL-G650

I managed to install ndiswrapper, and the DWL-G650 drivers with no errors, but when I tried to actually load the ndiswrapper module using the modprobe ndiswrapper command, I got this error.

FATAL: Error inserting ndiswrapper (/lib/modules/2.6.15-1.2054_FC5/misc/ndiswrapper.ko): Invalid module format

I have been struggling with for a while now, and it is getting very frustrating. If anyone out there has any ideas please let me know.

Welcome to LQ!

You usually get that kind of error when ndiswrapper was compiled against a different version of the kernel than is running on your machine. Can I ask how you installed ndiswrapper?


error, fatal, fc5, loading, ndiswrapper
