Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge and compile gentoo-dev-sources
2. emerge ndiswrapper

Actual Results:  
The following output is sent when trying to emerge ndiswrapper-0.10:

gtlaptop profiles # emerge ndiswrapper

I'm running an Inspiron 5150 on gentoo-dev-sources 2.6.8-r6.
Comment 1 Peter Johanson (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-10-06 16:16:40 UTC
Can you please confirm that /usr/src/linux/scripts/mod/modpost exists? This should be built when you compile the kernel. Thanks.
Comment 2 Greg Taylor 2004-10-06 16:54:16 UTC
modpost.h and modpost.c are there but it appears they were never compiled
Comment 3 Doug Goldstein (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-10-06 22:10:35 UTC
Do you have modules support turned on in your kernel? Is this issue resolved?
Comment 4 Henrik Brix Andersen 2004-11-01 05:46:38 UTC
This bug report is awaiting feedback from the reporter.
Comment 5 Henrik Brix Andersen 2004-12-29 06:26:30 UTC
Closing due to lack of feedback.
