Problem installing ndiswrapper on Red Hat 9 Kernel 2.4.20-8
Posted 27 April 2006 - 02:45 PM
I've read several posts about this error and it seems to be related to having a difference in kernel versions. I've tried a couple of suggestions but have not been able to resolve it. Does anyone have a simple solution for this?

Also, according to the install readme file for version 1.14;
You need a recent kernel, at least 2.6.6 or 2.4.26, with header files
for the kernel. Make sure there is a link to the kernel source from
the modules directory. The command
ls /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build
should have at least 'include' directory and '.config' file.

If you have more than one kernel version on the system (ie: you updated the kernel at some time), then make sure that you have the required symlink and either the kernel header files or kernel source installed for your currently run kernel, as per the quote above... ls /lib/modules/`uname -r`/build.
Also see the ndiswrapper wiki page for more information.
Reverting back to an older version that may work, I would not recommend. There are too many improvements in ndiswrapper to roll back to an older version effectively, especially if you have a newer wireless card.
What make and exact model + revision card do you have?
I'll be gone until May 5, so hopefully others can respond.
