    4k STACK SIZE ERROR


    I just installed Fedora Core 6, in dual boot mode, on my computer, and I'm now trying to get ndiswrapper-1.37 configured in hopes of getting my wireless card working.


    when i ran MAKE, I didn't see any errors, but when I ran MAKE INSTALL, the follow error was displayed.

    "***WARNING: This kernel seems to use 4K stack size option (CONFIG_4KSTACKS); many Windows drivers will not work with this option enabled. Disable CONFIG_4KSTACKS option, recompile and install kernel."

    a few other errors, but they may be as a result of the above.

    I'm new to Linux, and not sure what/how to go about disabling and recompiling the kernel. Any Suggestions?

    Is there any way for you to connect to the Internet with Linux?
    It would make this a lot less painful, if you you could, by using yum to update/install your kernel and ndiswrapper.
    if not then you probably need to get a 16k stack kernel from here.

    unfortunately, the router is up-stair, and my computer is in the basement, and with no ethernet card... i'll look at the link you recommended, and give that a try
