  • First post here (newbie with ndiswrapper)...

    Just trying to make ndiswrapper 1.55 on old computer (PC xTreme 7862i Pentium
    III 128 Mo RAM with Mandrake Linux PowerPack 10.1 linux kernel 2.6.8.1-12-mdk)

    I falled on error given in annotation Makefile SVN code:
    Makefile:51 *** no config found in , please set KBUILD to configured kernel

    From annotations Makefile SVN code, I guess right solution to make product
    (like for realease 1.47 when 'uname -r' was used by makefile to guess kernel
    information)

    Then after installing mdk package of kernel sources:

    • uname -r
    • export KBUILD="/lib/modules/2.6.8.1-12mdk/build"
    • export KSRC='/lib/modules/2.6.8.1-12mdk/source"
    • make

    You won't have much fun with linux 2.6.8, ndiswrapper 1.55 needs at least
    2.6.16.

     
  • OK. thanks for information
    But I don't want to upgrade kernel now (I tried before with ubuntu 9
    server...when other requirements appear: more RAM).
