Thanks, that’s great!

So, just copy them, no config or anything else needed?

Nothing else needed. They are just data used by the driver, and they
only need to be in the directory where the driver is looking. Of
course, it is very special data, so not just any file will do.

Confirmed:

cd /home/axel/osc/driver\:wireless/ndiswrapper/

osc build --clean openSUSE_Factory ndiswrapper.spec

There are also no specific patches in that repo needed to build ndiswrapper 1.55 with 2.6.31, M6 came with 2.6.31rc6 but this does not make a real difference (except the version of the built packages of course g).
