I need whatever help I can get to use ndis to converter wireless nic card so I can use it on my laptop. it seems that I don't have iconv working properly. I go into the ndisgen program by typing the command:
# ndisgen The program opens and gives a list of options. I choose option 3: Convert driver. The program then asks me to type in the path to the .inf file. So I type: /cdrom/DRIVER/bcmwl5.inf The program then says "This .INF file appears to be in Unicode. The iconv(1) utility does not appear to be installed. Please install this utility or convert the .INF file to ASCII and run this utility." So, I downloaded the iconv-2.0_3.tbz package and run the command: # pkg_add iconv-2.0_3.tbz Then I try ndisgen again and I get the above error message again. When I type in the command # pkg_info -L iconv-2.0_3 | less I get a list of files including biconv, iconv_mktbl, biconv.h, etc. But when I enter the command: # iconv I get the message: Command not found. Since it seems that the main problem now is getting iconv to run, the question is do I have it installed correctly? Do I need to change any environment variables to get the system to run it? How do I do this so that it runs automatically inside the ndisgen program, since this what it seems like the system is trying to do? Thanks for any help.
