running "modprobe ndiswrapper" hangs the system
I have an IBM Thinkpad 570 laptop and I have linux mandrake 10.0 installed on it. Everything works fine. I also have and Xterasys XN-2410b wireless card. I installed ndiswrapper. The driver works fine and I am able to connect to the internet. But, the problem I am having is when I try to load the driver using "modprobe ndiswrapper", the system hangs. So, I have to reboot and try loading the driver like 5 or 6 times before I can get the system and the wireless card to get working without hanging. I do not know what possibly could be the reason. I am posting the messages I got after running dmesg.
ndiswrapper: no version for "struct_module" found: kernel tainted.
ndiswrapper version 0.9 loaded
ndiswrapper: driver wlanpci.sys added
PCI: Enabling device 0000:02:00.0 (0000 -> 0003)
PCI: Found IRQ 11 for device 0000:02:00.0
PCI: Sharing IRQ 11 with 0000:00:07.0
PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:02:00.0 to 64
ndiswrapper: using irq 11
wlan0: ndiswrapper ethernet device 00:e0:98:ac:fd:8b using driver wlanpci.sys
wlan0 (WE) : Buffer for request 8B0B too small (560<564)
Does anyone have an idea of why this is happening. Please let me know.
