View Full Version : [gnome] 8.04 repos and ndiswrapper

February 16th, 2009, 04:06 AM
Hello! I'm having a problem with the 8.04 repos. I'm trying to install ndiswrapper. In Synaptic, the only thing that comes up is ndiswrapper-common, which is installed. I've read there are two other things I need ndiswrapper-utils and ngtdsk. I'm trying to install a Zonet zew-2502 (1285:1fab). I finally found the drivers at the www.zonetusa.com, but now I am stuck trying to get ndiswrapper, etc installed.

when I update Synaptic I get the following errors:

Some index files failed to download, they have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Any advice as to how to correct these errors and get ndiswrapper installed are greatly, greatly appreciated. :)

Try a different mirror. If you still can't find it, you may have to build it from source.

How would I go about finding other possible sources for this in the PPC vein specifically?
