Let me start by saying that PCLOS 2012 works fine, no problem at all with configuring the wireless card and ndiswrapper works seamlessly. But I need to upgrade, and I am having trouble with 2013.02.
I am trying out the new KDE 2013.02 releases (I tried both Mini and Full), and in each one I get stuck around the ndiswrapper not loading. I have done some extensive research here on the forums, but nothing helped...
I start by trying to add my wireless connection, So, I select my Windows wireless driver (mrv8335), which returns: "Unable to find the ndiswrapper interface!", and then drakconnect says "Unable to find network interface for selected device (using ndiswrapper driver).
I try to do a little fault isolation by:
# ndiswrapper -l
mrv8335 : driver installed
device (11AB:1FAA) present
so that is good...but when I :
FATAL: Module ndiswrapper not found.
Which I believe is the crux of the problem. Although Synaptic says it is installed, it does not appear to be installed correctly (or something).
Any ideas? If the suggestion is to recompile from the source at ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net, then I would need some help...
