Hi all,

I've been trying to install ndiswrapper in order to use my usb wireless adapter, Linksys's WUSB54GC on my Kuro-Box.

When I did make, I got the following error.

Quote:
# make
make -C driver
make[1]: Entering directory `/tmp/ndiswrapper-1.47/driver'
Can't find kernel build files in /lib/modules/2.6.20-kurobox/build;
give the path to kernel build directory with
KBUILD=<path> argument to make
make[1]: *** [prereq_check] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/ndiswrapper-1.47/driver'
make: *** [all] Error 2


The kernel has been upgraded to 2.6.20 with this image and the kernel module.

I did a google search and found this thread. They say,

Quote:
To install the kernel headers:

Code:
apt-get install kernel-headers-`uname -r`To install the kernel source, first find out the exact release with uname -r.
For example, if your release is 2.6.8-2-386 the command should be:

Code:
apt-get install kernel-source-2.6.8
cd /usr/scr
bunzip2 kernel-source-2.6.8.tar.bz2
tar -xvf kernel-source-2.6.8.tar
rm kernel-source-2.6.8.tar


So is it what I have to do to install kernel-headers and kernel-soucrce? I saw this thread as well. They say kernel-devel's and the current kernel's version have to be matched.

I appreciate your information.

windows drivers obviously were compiled for x86.

the Kurobox is ppc. wouldn`t that itself make it impossible to use them?

i might be wrong.

Thanks mindbender for your comment.
