Problems installing ndiswrapper


Hi guys, I was following the steps for installing ndiswrapper from www.linux-mag.com. These are the steps:

$tar xzvf ndiswrapper-1.8.tar.gz
$cd ndiswrapper-1.8/
$make distclean (This is where I get "bash: make not found or something)
$make
$sudo make install

I can not complete anything after the step: make distclean.

I'm trying to use ndiswrapper using an USB wireless adapter (USB54G from linksys). What should I do here?

Thanks..

Try:
$sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-utils
This should install ndiswrapper.
Hope this helps!

But when I use apt-get should I be connected to the internet? Right now I don't have internet. That is why I'm trying to install ndiswrapper so I can connect wirelessly. I'm using a WUSB54G usb wireless adapter from linksys. What do you think I'm typing wrong??

If you are still using ubuntu try here https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WifiDocs/Dri...iswrapperHowto - otherwise you need to install make, depending on distro could be part of development tools
