As Linux tries to move into general use the lack of truly
basic instructions in a highly accessible and easily
understood format will make or break the effort -- things
have improved but still have along way to go.

Meanwhile I just want make install to make install ndiswrapper,
not to send me into days wasted trying to figure out what the
incomplete make install code did wrong. Is that too much to
ask?

*Rant Off* Sorry, just frustrated because life is busy and
I keep imagining that computers are supposed to make things
more rather than less efficient! Linux is better than M$
Windows but still wastes far too much of my time. ;-\

I wouldn't consider compiling low level network drivers general use of Linux or any other operating system. Very few Windows users would dare attempt what you are trying. That, however, is just my opinion and not helping you a bit.

Soooo ....

It still may have something to do with flex ... double check it is installed. Try "which flex" and see what you get.
Run ldconfig
I don't recall ... did you try the ndiswrapper RPM that is included in 9.1 (ver. 6.23) or will it not work with your driver?
clear the current source directory and try again.
make sure and run "modprobe -r ndiswrapper" before trying anything.
uninstall the ndiswrapper RPM before doing the compile and install of the source version.
Keep trying!

Louis
