fatal module ndiswrapper not found , cant build from source

Postby rchgore on Sun Nov 25, 2012 1:00 pm

I suffer from a bug that the ndiswrapper is installed, sees my device, it is just not found by modprobe. When I try to compile ndiswrapper from source as suggested, I get errors. mint wifi and make outputs below. I've been though many hoops for days..., no joy, please help! Everything worked before my upgrade to LM14 cinnimon from LM9 gnome

Rather than invoking init scripts through /etc/init.d, use the service(8)
utility, e.g. service smbd reload

Since the script you are attempting to invoke has been converted to an
Upstart job, you may also use the reload(8) utility, e.g. reload smbd

Well after a few days messing around, I gave up on Mint 14. It's been flawless on this pc for quuite a while, mint 9 I think. Any way, Installed Mageia 2 and had ndiswrapper installed and working with my wnda3100v2 in minutes. Like Mint used to do.
