Hello , These were part of the instructions from a post on 8/11/08 by kubilia_XAN that I need help with.I have openSUSE 11
"STEP 4: Use Windows Drivers via ndiswrapper
Extract the windows drivers, open the terminal (Computer > More Applications > Terminal)
Change directory to where you extracted the windows drivers.
Type in the console:
ndiswrapper -i rt2500usb.inf
STEP 5: Configure Network Settings
Computer > YaST > Network Settings
Select “Wireless-G USB Network Adapter” and click Edit.
Under the hardware tab, type “ndiswrapper” in the Module Name box. Hit Next.
Wireless Network Card Configuration pops up, type in the network name and the corresponding network settings. Click Next, then click Finish.
Reboot the computer. Your wireless connection should work now."
I have the windows .inf driver on my desktop waiting to be put into ndiswrapper but I cant seem to do it.
What do they mean when they say “Change directory to where you extracted the windows driver”?
When I go into konsole I type su,then password,then “ndiswrapper -i rt2500usb.inf” up comes this Install/manage windows drivers for ndiswrapper but I’m stuck here nothing happens. It gives selections like -i,-a,-r etc. but I cant apply the -i selection.
I might mention that I have ndiswrapper and ndiswrapper-kmp-default packages installed.
I hope somebody is familiar to what I am trying to get across, any help would be appreciated. I am a noob as you can clearly tell.
What is command-line tool? Is it the same as terminal? Is terminal and konsole the same thing?
