Hi,
I have Sony VIAO and trying to install the driver for the following
wireless interface: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG, with the
help of Ndiswrapper 1.8. I have Fedora 4.

Following the wikipages for Fedora that I
have(http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/mediawiki/index.php/Fedora), it
looks like I don't have my the kernel source at the correct diretory.
The suggestion on the page mentioned above is to run the following
command to install the "kernel-devel" package into
/usr/src/kernels/[kernel-version]

'yum install kernel-devel'

When I am executing in the terminal, I am getting the following
messages:
Setting up Install Process
Setting up repositories
Cannot find a valid baseurl for repo: updates-released

I have tried to find the asnwer in yum's FAQ
(http://wiki.linux.duke.edu/YumFaq). However, this didn't help a lot.
What should I do?

Thank you

If you have the Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG card you're going to want to use
the Linux driver from http://ipw2200.sf.net instead of ndiswrapper. This
is a driver written directly for Linux (ndiswrapper uses Windows drivers)
and works much better. I don't know anything about YUM but there should be
a package of some sort for it.

I think something is wrong with /etc/yum.repos/update-released.repo
(maybe.i don't know exactly.i HAD used Fedora and Yum.)
In this file, you should change download server url.
cf: http://fedora.redhat.com/Download/mirrors.html

By the way, i DISLIKE ndiswrapper.
i'm using Atheros wireless card with madwifi-ng driver.
Before i use it, i had used ndiswrapper.
ndiswrapper gave me no information about wireless statuses such as link
quality or signal level etc... and other wireless tools mostly do not
support ndiswrapper because it uses Windows driver.
So, you should use drivers for Linux, if you can.

Have fun!

You can temporary disable that repo (if ndiswrapper isn't in

updates-relased, of course)
