I am using ndiswrapper for my IPW2200, attempting to connect to a Managed network with WEP.
I set up my OS following LFS 5.1, with both Linux 2.4.26 and 22.214.171.124 installed.
I have applied the 16K stacks patch to the 2.6 kernel.
So far, the ndiswrapper CVS from today has worked fine on the 2.6 kernel (although I haven't yet tried it with much stress on the system).
However, when running the 2.4.26 kernel (I did remember to build ndiswrapper separately for each kernel), all versions from 0.9 onwards result in a keventd oops and a keyboard lockup.
Version 0.8 loads fine, but causes the above problem when unloaded if ifconfig has been called on any ndiswrapper-managed interface.
Also, the following problems often occur spontaneously, especially with high system load:
* Keyboard and all network interfaces stop responding.
* X display shuts down and freezes up when it restarts;
I can connect via SSH but wlan stops functioning a few seconds after I connect.
* Kernel panic, something to do with IRQ.
Any ideas? Please say what other information is required, if any.
