It can't find the package "ndiswrapper" - are you such you're looking in the correct repository? Or maybe ndiswrapper isn't the exact name (if they've called it "ndiswrapper-dev" or "ndiswrapper_1" or something).

yeah,i think that maybe the correct reps because most of the internet show either 'yum install kmod-ndiswrapper' or 'yum install ndiswrapper'.. I'm not sure where to how to know the repository.. What are the link that i must go for to know the suitable reps?

you ARE running fedora, correct? we're going to assume yes so..
do this:
yum install yumex
yumex
(now you have a GUI that you can interface with)
click on the Install button and search for ndiswrapper
if it doesn't find anything, its not in the repo. in this case, close yumex
now enter: gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/livna.repo
copy and paste this into the file:
Quote:
[livna-stable]
name=Livna.org Fedora Compatible Packages (stable)
baseurl=http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/$releasever/$basearch/RPMS.lvn
enabled=0
gpgcheck=1
save the file and exit gedit. now if you're running fedora core 5 and i believe fedora core 6, you'd do:
yum --enablerepo=livna install kmod-ndiswrapper

now it should work. :]
i believe you're also going to want kernel-devel , so you may want to install it just to make life easier.
