RE: Newest kernel Fedora (2.6.21-1.3194.fc7) killed ndiswrapper



Oh crud....does that mean I have to get into all that compiling my own version of the kernel stuff I have read about? Is it normal for them to compile the kernel with that switch turned off?

Thanks!

Arch

[jcliburn osprey boot]$ grep CONFIG_DEBUG_SPINLOCK config-2.6.21-1.*.fc7
config-2.6.21-1.3189.fc7:CONFIG_DEBUG_SPINLOCK=y

config-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7:CONFIG_DEBUG_SPINLOCK_SLEEP=y

The 3194 kernel was built without CONFIG_DEBUG_SPINLOCK set (see the above grep 
command output).

CONFIG_DEBUG_SPINLOCK is required by the exporter of __spin_lock_init.

Since ndiswrapper requires __spin_lock_init, it won't run under 3194 because the 
kernel was built without providing it.
