      Mandriva Official Documentation

      Official documentation for extant versions of Mandriva can be found at doc.mandriva.com.   Documentation for the latest release may take some time to appear there. You can install all the manuals from the main repository if you have Mandriva installed - files are prefixed mandriva-doc.

      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

Getting ndiswrapper to work

Recommended Posts

If you've decided that you need to use ndiswrapper to get your wireless networking card going, there's a couple of places you should check if you have problems:


Carefully read the tips and tricks thread on this board (perhaps a little out of date, but still good advice).


If you're having trouble make sure you get the latest version of ndiswrapper from their website to replace the mandrive supplied version.


You'll need the kernel-source rpm that matches your running kernel (check this kernel version with uname -a) - use Easy-urpmi to help install this if need be.


Check the list of wireless cards to see if anyone has had success with your card.


If you've read all these documents and are still having problems - then please start a new topic and people will try their best to help.
