Thread: openSUSE 11.2 milestone 6 - ndiswrapper

    Default openSUSE 11.2 milestone 6 - ndiswrapper

    OK, so what happened to ndiswrapper and the kernel modules?

    I guess nobody sees this as a problem, that ndiswrapper was not part of this milestone!

    I just looked on the DVD and they are there.

    You can probably download them directly from the factory repo, or if you are really stuck I can email them to you I guess.

    They're quite small .

    Something odd going on here as they're not on my DVD (32-bit) or add-on CD.
    However, as you say, they are on the factory repo -

    Not on my 32bit DVD either. And then there is the Catch 22 situation with them being on the repository; need them to get network access!

    But I will download them and copy them over.

    Thanks guys.

    If your media indeed are missing packages, don't use them anymore. Some corruption must exist, the chances are that you will meet more trouble like this. Download new images, check MD5, burn to disk, check MD5 of burnt disk.

    Gary, I checked my DVD before installation and have just re-checked it. It
    is OK and does NOT have ndiswrapper on it. Knurpht offers good general
    advice above but the problem here is with the original M6 distribution.

    No open-source software needs or uses ndiswrapper, which is likely why
    it is not included.

    It is currently not included for the simple reason of not building currently and older build not being compatible anymore.
