ndiswrapper in Mepis
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 10, 2007
I am waiting for my desktop to arrive and when it does I will make it 100% Ubuntu. I am thinking of replacing Ubuntu on my laptop with Mepis because 3D acceleration works out of the box and I have yet been able to get it to work on Edgy. Im still a noob and want to know if the ndiswrapper install works the exact same way or do I do something different. May even try a triple boot.
MEPIS 3.3 + Ndiswrapper
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 1, 2005
Does anyone know if Ndiswrapper 1.0 will run successfully under Mepis 3.3? Cuz I can't seem to get it working properly, no matter what I try. Not only I can't get a connection, but DHCP doesn't work either.
My card is D-Link DWL-G520, router is D-Link DI-624.
If you wish, I will post more info from my logs.
Mepis vs Ubuntu/Kubuntu

Pros: I would say near 100% Debian compatible, it even uses debian repositories, I really like that. Nice 2.4 and 2.6 kernel support, all the programs work well in Mepis (Wine, Crossover, VMware Workstation - full HD support)
Cons: A one man based distro, there are not many Mepis users, small community. Warren is a genius of Linux but I'd rather be part of a big community.
Pros: Really nice distro, awesome job, it's a whole community behind the distros
Cons: I really dislike the idea of using a distro that does not users Debian repositories. For instance, I searched for "klineak" and I didn't got any result in Synaptic (I enabled all the repositories)
So, I will appreciate any opinions about my post, I'm really undecided. I want to use a Distro that has a good community, and I want to be able to access the Debian repositories, which are HUGE and are the main reason I'm behind Ubuntu/Kubuntu and Mepis
I was using Mepis, but then the new Mepis was r

Thanks for the clarification. It should be noted, of course, that Ubuntu defaults to Gnome and Mepis to KDE, then. In both distros you can download the other desktop environment, should you choose.
ndiswrapper ubuntu amd64
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 9, 2005
I'm having trouble with ndiswrapper and the linksys wmp54g (Ralink RT2500). I've used the driver from the linksys website, but it was 32 bit and didn't work. Then I tried the 64 bit drivers from Ralink. None of them work.
I'm running dual amd64 chips under kubuntu with kernel 2.6.
ndiswrapper -l shows that the driver is installed and the hardware is present.
I've tried the newest ndiswrapper release and the newest ndiswrapper snapshot.
The output of dmesg includes the following:
ndiswrapper version 1.2 loaded (preempt=no,smp=yes)
general protection fault: 0000  SMP

Dual Boot Mepis & Ubuntu
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 7, 2013
I have disconnected all my internal hard drives, but left my external USB Hard Drive connected as a solo drive.I then installed Mepis 11 onto the drive followed by Ubuntu 12 as Dual Boot. I then booted my USB drive via the BIOS boot options, and both OS booted and ran without problems.After reconnecting my internal drives and rebooting to my USB drive Ubuntu still loads and runs, but Mepis now hangs on boot with a device not found error.Obviously since reconnecting my drives Mepis is not finding the drive where it expects it to be.It would appear that I need to configure boot/Grub to correct the problem, but I do not know how to do this.Ubuntu obviously modified Grub during installation and created a Boot Loader.When I installed Mepis Grub was written to the MBR.I would be very grateful if someone could help me with this.
My system is an Acer Aspire M3802 Desktop, Intel Q8300 Processor,8GB Ram, Nvidia Geforce GT230 Graphics Card, and four internal SATA Drives (one partitioned into two

ubuntu 7.04 ndiswrapper no internet
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 2, 2007
I need to install ndiswrapper but when I use synaptic it says it needs to download 50.6kb before it can install it but I have no internet yet(which is the reason I am installing ndiswrapper). I have downloaded ndiswrapper from the ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net but can't find where to place it so synaptic can find it. What do I do? Can I install it from the desktop?
