Hello ndiswrapper gurus,
recently I installed SuSE 11.3 on my computer with a recent Kernel (2.6.34 or
so). I was a little bit disappointed, as ndiswrapper didn't work out of the
box, as it used to with older versions.
The wext interface, which is used by ndiswrapper, seems to be declared
deprecated now. There are other issues too, that need to be solved, like the
changed usb functions and there's no labeled version with the 64bit patch.
Although there's an increasing number of native drivers for wireless devices,
I think ndiswrapper is still needed for some time. I would be glad to hear
(and see), that ndiswrapper continues to offer the chance to use wifi devices
without proper linux drivers.
If the project is still alive, I'd like to contribute to it, maybe by
implementing the nl80211 stuff or testing new versions (but perhaps I'm
overrating my skills)
Please tell the ndiswrapper community your further plans.
I am also concerned about this. I tried to build ndiswrapper against a
liquorix kernel, 2.6.35-rc6 (forum for liquorix kernels is here http://techpa
). I got the same errors documented in bug 3034427 https://sourceforge.net/tr
Thanks -- Mike
I'm also VERY concerned with NDISwrapper's continued reliance on WEXT (wireless-extensions). Has any progress been made, in regards to switching over to a non-depreciated nl80211/cfg80211 interface?
For already existing cfg80211->NDIS conversion, check rndis_wlan kernel driver. http://lxr.linux.no/linux+v3.10.10/drivers/net/wireless/rndis_wlan.c
