I am having a problem getting ndiswrapper to work in this FC5 computer.

Shows the kernel as 2.6.17-1.2187_FC5.

and the module I downloaded via yumex

ll /lib/modules/2.6.17-1.2187_FC5/updates/ndiswrapper.ko

However it doesn't work

modprobe ndiswrapper

FATAL: Error inserting ndiswrapper
(/lib/modules/2.6.17-1.2187_FC5/updates/ndiswrapper.ko): Invalid module

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Hi Bob Goodwin!

What I do know is that the new versions if ndiswrapper do need to be
aware of where the kernel build is.

I also know that you need to wrap a specific driver (ndiswrapper -i
mydriver.dvr (iirc)), and associate it with a specific device
(ndiswrapper -d XXXX:XXXX  (iirc) (from lspci -n).

To google "ndiswrapper.ko): Invalid module format" yields a lot about
having the same versions of restricted modules, etc... and compiling
ndiswrapper specifically for a given kernel.

Oh yes, you need to make the kernel stack size not it's normal 4k but
rather 16k for the hungry driver.

Have fun!
