ndiswrapper help

Recommended Posts

I am running Slackware 10.2 with the 2.4.31 Kernel.


For the past few days I have been trying, with no luck, to install ndiswrapper. I have followed the Wiki Located Here. Everything goes as planed, I assume, untill I have to input "make install." At that point I get:


root@Computer:/home/User/tmp/ndiswrapper-1.11# make install
make -C driver install
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/User/tmp/ndiswrapper-1.11/driver'

Welcome :D


Ok.. it looks like you are missing that file net/iw_handler.h is a part of the kernel. My guess is that if you the package that continues the kernel "headers" then you should be ok..


Do this:

uname -a


You will get output like:

Linux tone 2.6.15-gentoo-r1-znx #1 PREEMPT Wed Mar 8 21:35:31 GMT 2006 i686 AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2700+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux


My kernel version is 2.6.15-gentoo-r1-znx, so look for your version in there.. then:


For instance I found kernel-headers-2.4.31-i386-1.tgz This would work for a kernel version 2.4.31 ..
