suse 10.1, 2 cards neither work
Re: suse 10.1, 2 cards neither work
first off, does the SuSE 10.1 kernel have 8K stacks enabled? If not, then ndiswrapper will not work with that kernel [after you modprobe/insmod it]. You will have to build a new kernel, and turn off 4K stacks [thus enabling 8K]. This setting is down under Kernel Hacking in the Xconfig GUI. The old SuSE 10 kernel must have been compiled for 8K stacks, so it worked for you there.
For your Broadcom NIC, same problem..
When you get the 8K stack kernel built & booted/loaded, then you can do this for the windoze driver loads:
ndiswrapper -i the.inf.filename
That will read the .inf file, and load the correct driver .exe files into the directory
then, run modprobe ndiswrapper
This will load the wrapper module into the kernel. you can check in /var/log/messages logfile by running: dmesg | grep ndiswrapper to see if things were loaded OK.
I had problems with Suse not detecting my wireless cards. I had to edit the kernel parameters section in /boot/grub/menu.lst and add the line "pci=assign-busses" then reboot. After this all pcmcia wireless cards were detected even without the drivers being installed.
