It seems to me I read that yum provides ndiswrapper but I have met with

since it lists available RPM's. Nothing there either.
This is a new FC-5 installation and perhaps not configured for the
I did download a tarred" copy which I can install if there's no RPM.
This is part of an effort to install a Linksys WMP54G "wireless"
Any help appreciated.

[root@gstpc-fc4 ~]# yum list ndiswrapper*
ndiswrapper.i386 1.10-2.lvn5 livna
It is in the livna repository, so install/enable that repo and you
will be able to install it from rpm. I installed it both ways on a
laptop trying a similar thing and it worked the same either way, but I
think it is good to use an rpm whenever possible.
Neither yum nor yumex will work with Livna, can't find the mirrors for
whatever reason. I've replaced the /etc/yum.repos.d/ files with what I
saved from fc4 which did work.
I have two computers, this Linux box that needs the wireless adapter
installed and a Mac that needs the router attached and setup and I can't
do anything because my basic tools don't work, very frustrating.
Can anyone provide me with a copy of the required yum configuration file
that works and/or "2.6.15-1.2054_FC5/build?"
