Red Hat versioning & updating kernels
Posted on 2005-04-01
I am trying to get ndiswrapper 1.1 to work. It requires the include files for the kernel 2.4.21-4. I am ruinning that kernel since I have Red Hat Enterprise vers. 3.
The problem comes into existance when I install the source files for that kernel. The tarball itself is called, "kernel.2.4.21.tar.bzip2" not "kernel.2.4.21-4.tar.bzip2".
I install & compile the source.
So, the problem is when I compile the ndiswrapper code. When I go to load ndiswrapper, using modprobe I get an error message that says that ndiswrapper was compiled with include files from 2.4.21 instead of 2.4.21-4. How do I go about overcoming this problem?
What does the "-4" stand for & where does it come from?
