I'm a little new to the setting up a Linux system world -- I'm trying to get
a wireless card working so I can get rid of XP but so far it's proven rather
difficult. I'm not new to getting around as a user or anything though. I've
read through all the install instructions and FAQ and I don't think they
cover my situation, and I would appreciate any help anyone can offer.
I'm working on a new gentoo install (so my versions of everything should be
fairly new), my kernel is [Linux i686 2.4.26-gentoo-r9], and I'm running on
a P3-500 laptop. I have a PCMCIA Linksys WPC11 version 4. I compiled PCMCIA
directly into the kernel (not as a module), everything else was standard
gentoo genkernel. (With the module I couldn't get PCMCIA to work at all.) I
then emerged pcmcia-cs, 3.2.5-r1. I did another emerge and got ndiswrapper
My card pciid: 10ec:8180 (rev 20) Realtek 8180L
I saw many entries for this on the list, and I tried Realtek's XP driver
1.54 and 1.73. Both act the same way: ndiswrapper -l will list "8180l
hardware present". Then, when I do a "modprobe ndiswrapper" the system
crashes (a kernel panic i guess?) with the error below (from 1.73 driver,
but 1.54 looks similar).
Any thoughts would be appreciated -- thanks.
