I am a newbie and am installing ndiswrapper-0.8 on 2.6.6-1.435.2.3 kernel. I navigatged into my ndiswrapper-0.8 dir and typed make install and got the error below.
make -C driver install
make: Entering directory `/root/Desktop/downloads/untitled folder/ndiswrapper-0.8/driver'
make -C /lib/modules/2.6.6-1.435.2.3smp/build SUBDIRS=/root/Desktop/downloads/untitled folder/ndiswrapper-0.8/driver DRV_VERSION=0.8 modules
make: Entering directory `/lib/modules/2.6.6-1.435.2.3smp/build'
make: *** No rule to make target `folder/ndiswrapper-0.8/driver'. Stop.
make: Leaving directory `/lib/modules/2.6.6-1.435.2.3smp/build'
make: *** [default] Error 2
make: Leaving directory `/root/Desktop/downloads/untitled folder/ndiswrapper-0.8/driver'
make: *** [install] Error 2
I have the source installed. Do I have to place the files somewhere specific to compile? Or does it have something to to with making a link? If so how. These install instructions that come with the package are confusing to me.
My guess is that the problem stems from having a directory name containing a space ("untitled folder"). When make sees the argument SUBDIRS=/root/Desktop/downloads/untitled folder/ndiswrapper-0.8/driver it interprets the space between "untitled" and "folder" as separating two arguments and therefore treats "folder/ndiswrapper-0.8/driver" as a separate argument.
