ndiswrapper - "unable to handle kernel paging request..."
I'm trying to use ndiswrapper to get a D-Link DWL-G520+ wireless card going on my Slackware (10.2) box. It uses the TI-ACX111 chipset (and is number 14 under D on the ndiswrapper list of compatible cards).
I've been following the instructions on the ndiswrapper wiki. However, although it instructs you not to use the driver on your CD but to download it from a link on the above mentioned list*, there is no link to the driver for my card, the list merely saying that it ships with the card, so I've used the one on the CD.
All goes well until I reach the command
when I get a whole series of error messages, beginning with
Oddly, these errors occur after the next command prompt has come up, so the screen looks like this:
Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address c28cd000
This means that I cant save this error output to a file (at least not in the way I know how), hence my not including the full text of the errors. If it is neccessary I can copy it all out manually, but I thought I'd see if the problem can be solved without that.
root@Bess:/home# modprobe ndiswrapper
root@Bess:/home# Unable to handle kernel paging request at virtual address c28cd000
further error messages
Google does throw up a few apparently related pages, but none that seem able to answer the problem.
Thanks for taking the time to read this - any help greatfully recieved :-)
*As apparently it should then be more reliable, as it will have been tested
