Had a hard time finding any recent info on ndiswrapper and porteus and 1.57/1.58 wouldnt build or install properly from source for me so I pulled this pkg from the slackware repo and converted it. Optimal or not, it works for me with no issues. Hopefully someone else benefits from it, enjoy.

As usual, copy to /porteus/modules or load it on-the-fly.

modprobe ndiswrapper
ndiswrapper -i /path/to/driver.inf
ndiswrapper -m

add "modprobe ndiswrapper" to your startup script.

this module wont work with Porteus as depends on the specific kernel version. Porteus has kernel in version '3.9.11' and this package was created for '' (pretty ancient).

if you want ndiswrapper running then you should get the sources from the slackbuilds project and compile it on your PC: ... pper-utils (utilities which does not depend on the kernel version) ... er-kernel/ (kernel module which is compiled against the kernel version you are using right now)
