View Full Version : [ubuntu] Trouble installing ndiswrapper

March 7th, 2009, 11:56 PM
Whenever I try and make ndiswrapper it fails and says:

Makefile:51: *** No .config found in , please set KBUILD to configured kernel. Stop.

Why? I am trying to install ndiswrapper 1.54 on Ubuntu 8.04

What's wrong with

sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper

That doesn't work it says:

E: Unable to find package ndiswrapper

If you still want to compile ndiswrapper from source, you need the "build-essential" package, and you can install that by running the following:

sudo apt-get install build-essential
That's one option, if you want to install ndiswrapper through the repos, you need to run the following:

sudo apt-get install ndiswrapper-common

I figured out why I was getting the

E: Couldn't find package ndiswrapper

it was because I didn't have the CD on the repositories.

I have installed the build essentials but I still get the config error.
