    Trying to get wireless network going on my Acer Aspire 5151. ownloaded Linux
    10 and have Linux running on my dualboot with Linux and Windows 7 (64) using
    Wubi, Downloaded ndiswrapper and unpacked it and trying iniall. The install
    directions say use :
    make uninstall
    make
    There is no "make" in the root directiory of the uninstalled files. There is a
    "makefile" .
    For the Prerequiisites, I see in the /lib/modules has an include directory,
    but no .config file.
    And in the next part where you install the Windows dirver, I'm lost.
    Any help on getting this installed ?

    You should copy the windows drivers into a directory of their own, then run
    ndiswrapper -i path_to_drivers/driver_name.inf
    then run modprobe ndiswrapper
    You will need to do this as root or su

    Im running Fedora 12 with 2.6.32.26-175: Ive downloaded ndiswrapper and
    extracted to /home/james/Downloads/ndiswrapper. I start the install process
    starting with make as the pwd is that to the left. When I try to make it gives
    me this output: make unistall blah blah blah good., make clean make -c driver
    clean make : entering directory
    '/home/james/downloads/ndiswrapper-1.56/driver' Makefile:34 cannot find
    kernel version in /usr/src/kernels/
    is it configured? stop. make leaving
    directory '/home/james/Downloads/ndiswrapper-1.56/driver' make:*** error 2.
    Can anyone help with this?
