Hi everybody, I've just switched to 64studio from ubuntustudio, and I found it very stable. But now I've got a problem. My wi-fi broadcom works only with ndswrapper, I downloaded it and installed the windows *.inf driver, BUT I can't build the module with module-assistant, here there is the error: ndiswrapper-source (source) installed (V: 1.28-1): │ │ -- Binary package(s) for kernel(s): │ │ + (2.6.21-1-multimedia-486): not found I think it depends on the lack of the linux kernel source, I tried to download linux-source-2.6.21 but nothing is happening, someone could help me? Bye

thanks Kacper

All working, great. Only problem was getting lenny sources. I'm running 2.1rc1, and get horrible version conflicts with synaptic. Solved by manually downloading package and copying the ndiswrapper.tar.bz2 file into /usr/src

Hi, hmm i think you mast install only package ndiswrapper-source from lenny, the rest of ndiswrapper packages mast by from etch. Simple add to sources.list rep for lenny. Next from root in console write apt-get update (or in synaptic click refresh) and apt-get install ndiswrapper-source, or find in synaptic and install or upgrade.

Hi, thanks for you reply,
