Trying to install kernel 2.6.31.8. There's nothing in the 6.0 kernel repo under drivers/ for this kernel. Has ndiswrapper, etc., been built in, or not needed? Where can I look to get this kind of info for a given kernel version in the repository?

Did you install kernel modules?

Yes, installed kernel modules. But back to running 2.6.27.12. Will try 2.6.31.6 later on.

Was more interested as to why .8 showed nothing in drivers/, and how to find information such as this before upgrading the kernel from now on.

I upgraded successfully to 2.6.27.29 but had drivers issues with 31.6 and 31.8. Loaded all the additional driver packages but could not get WL wireless working in my HP Mini 1000.
