Hmmm, does appear to help so far. I issued key off right after modprobe
ndiswrapper and it hasn't crashed yet, thought the "Wireless event too
big" does appear in logs still. Can't connect, but that was expected -
the signal is really low. The fact that mine panics and theirs doesn't
could be the difference between Fedora Core 2 and Fedora Core 3. It
would be nice to know if this is a kernel problem or an ndiswrapper
problem, so I know who to report the bug to. Any ideas?
