I'm trying to use ndiswrapper 1.50 in Fedora 8 to use the built-in Atheros chipset based wireless in an Acer Travelmate 2480 laptop. I have no problems installing the windowsXP driver, however as soon as I do "modprobe ndiswrapper", there's an immediate crash.
Unfortunately, since this is a notebook, there is no serial console, so the best I can do is attempt to transcribe the backtrace that appears on the screen when the system dies:
BUG: unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address 6c6c6163
printing eip: c0406292 *pde = 00000000
Recursive die() failure, output suprressed
I get the same exact crash even when using an 8k stacks kernel.
