I flagged this as a bug in Gentoo's bugzilla, but they consider it an
upstream problem: <http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=112573>
Installation routine fails if driver directory contains spaces, for
instance 'Drivers/Windows XP/driver.inf'.
This can usually be fixed by renaming the directory to something without
spaces, or cd'ing to the directory containing the .inf file.
Suggested improvement would be to use Perl's File::Basename and
File::Copy core modules -- rather than shelling out using backticks --
as they both handle file names without quoting issues.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. ndiswrapper -i 'Drivers/Windows XP/driver.inf'
Installer fails with error message from basename
Installed the driver binaries
(who is happily using a cheapo TrendNet PCI wlan card, and the family
are no longer tripping over a long network cable -- thanks, folks!)
