After inserting wlan-card mylaptop freeze on boot ...
I've been trying to get my Linksys wcf12 compactflash card (prism 2.5) working under kernel 2.6.0 on a Gericom X5 Force laptop. Basically:
- the linux-wlan-ng modules from debian/testing do not work (they are for 2.4)
- the sources of linux-wlan-ng-0.2.1-pre16 (newest version from the linux-wlan-ng site) compile successfully, but do not work.
The module cause system lockup after a few seconds. After inserting wlan-card, the laptop freeze on boot in only 30s (i.e. mouse and keyboard input is ignored and only a restart fixes the problem).
I am completely out of ideas on how to proceed. I know the card is
fine because it works on windows XP.
Any suggestions appreciated.
