I found that latest version of ndiswrapper is not compilable with linux kernel
Is there a plan to release new version of ndiswrapper compatible with latest
A patch is highly appreciated.
it is compilable with 220.127.116.11 kernel, and, when it is compiled and
installed, usable with 2.6.33 and 18.104.22.168 kernels
it is not compilable with 2.6.33(.1) because this kernel is not same with the
wirless extention option...
Actually, if you have a kernel greater than 22.214.171.124, you can make it work.
You have to turn on mac80211 support under Networking support ---> Wireless,
and pick one of the Intel wireless drivers under Device drivers ---> Network
device support ---> Wireless LAN. Set that driver as a module since you don't
want it loading...or trying to load. Blacklisting in not neeeded as the Intel
module will fail when it doesn't find the PIC address it expects. Turning that
driver on will turn on WIRELESS_EXT, which is still in the kernel, even up to
2.6.34. The proof is I am posting this message using 2.6.34 and ndiswrapper.
You can use any of the Intel drivers, as they all turn on WIRELESS_EXT.
This works with Gentoo. For other distros, as long as you set as described,
you should be able to finish ndiswrapper compilation.
