First off I am a total Linux virgin. Worked in PC/Server support for 14 years but never really taken an interest in Linux until now.
I have completely binned Vista on my desktop in favour of Kubuntu and after a few teething issues have most packages installed, including Virtual Box OSE and Wine.
I have installed Fedora 9 on my wife's old laptop and we have a Netgear WG111v2 USB wireless adapter for it. However I am aware of the issues getting it to work.
This has led me in the direction of NDISWRAPPER but unfortunately I cannot get this to install and anything else I try and install after Googling the problem doesnt seem to work.
The error I am getting is the common :
[steff@localhost ndiswrapper-1.53]$ make
make -C driver
make: Entering directory `/home/steff/Desktop/ndiswrapper-1.53/driver'
Makefile:23: *** Kernel tree not found - please set KBUILD to configured kernel. Stop.
make: Leaving directory `/home/steff/Desktop/ndiswrapper-1.53/driver'
make: *** [all] Error 2
A bit of research has led me onto several fixes, some mentioning installed kernel-devel-..... files but nothing seems to succeed and I'm halted by an error no matter what I do.
In case it matters, a uname -r provides this info, if its relevant...
Any help would be most appreciated as at this point I'm wondering if its easier to just buy a USB-RJ45 adapter......
