Description:

A GUI for ndiswrapper. Inspired by ndisgtk (thanks for it!)
There are repositories now for Mandriva at http://rpmlinux.org/kndiswrapper
(thanks to mapi)
and rpm packages for SuSE Linux at
http://packman.links2linux.de/package/kndiswrapper
(tanks to Andrea Florio)

I have uploaded a blank language file for 0.3.9.

Regarding 0.4.0 - I myself do not use ndiswrapper anymore though I need some help for testing. If there are some people out there using ndiswrapper - please try out my tool and gimme some feedback. Thanks.

0.4.0 Complete port to KDE/Qt 4.x

0.3.9 Now an installation Wizard was added to the application. This wizard helps you to find the correct inf-file and the associated sys-file. Espacially helpful if you try to find the already installed driver within a windows partition.

0.3.8 I've made a few changes to the dhcp setup script. Thanks to
Troy S. McRoodberg the application now has a russian translation file. I also made the ndiswrapper "cards known to work" wiki available. The application checks now at the installation process if there are enties in the wiki (offline) for the hardware present in the computer (hardware id). So you may get helpfull hints for the installation process (where to get an appropriate driver, did it work on someone else PC and so on ...). You can even browse the wiki-file and search within it. I'll try to update the wikifile frequently.

0.3.7 KNDISWrapper can now speak brasilian. A language file for brasilian was provided by Márcio P. Moraes. Thank you very much.

0.3.6 Did some more tweaks at the wifi setup. By invoking the app with --disablerootcheck you can disable the internal root check. The app still needs root right to run properly. With --disablenetconf you remove the net config button. I was asked by someone to add this feature ....
Now you can also connect to network with encryption set to off (no encryption).

0.3.5 Improvment of the wifi setup. Language files are now included into the source and the rpm package. You can now select the language with the first startup of the app or by invocing the prog with --setup as root.

0.3.4 Language Files for German and Simplified Chinese are availabel. The Language File for Simplified Chinese is a courtesy of Ni Hui. (Thanks)
A Language File for Italian is in the making.

0.3.4 Added language support. A blank language file is provided an I will upload a german translation soon. The language file must be named: kndiswrapper_xx.qm where xx stands for the country code. For example for Italy the filename must be: kndiswrapper_it.qm. The file must be placed at /root/.kndiswrapper/translations. The gui loads the language file depending on the language setting for the desktop.

0.3.3 Added profiles to the network configuration. Now you can save different network configuration for a interface. With a click of the mouse you change the configuration of the network. A feature for user with a notebook who use different configuration at different locations.

0.3.2 Fixing some bugs (dhcp-config) and other minor flaws. I did some testing with a Fritz-Box and a Speedport W700V

0.3.1 Adding a setup feature so you can now setup your wireless network (inc. encryption, dhcp or static ip)

0.2.5 Doing a bit more to help a user to install a driver and checking for problems and fix them.

0.2.0 Just generic support to install windows driver

I try to make it work. I know that ndiswrapper could be a real pain in the ... , so I thought it might be a good idea to make it a bit easier cause when it works - it works good.
