4k stacks cause freezing and kernel panics with some wireless cards under ndiswrapper
Last modified: 2009-01-07 14:00:27 EST
Description of problem:
The 4k stacks in the Fedora kernel cause freezing and kernel panics with my RTL8185 under ndiswrapper when doing modprobe ndiswrapper. The user has to pull a hard reset due to a complete lock-up, the fix was to compile a custom kernel without 4k stacks.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This happens with Fedora 9 & 10 I am using 220.127.116.11-159
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora
2. Install Ndiswrapper and RTL8185 driver.
3. Enter modprobe ndiswrapper
8k stacks by default.
ndiswrapper is unsupported and will continue to be unsupported. We certainly aren't going to use bigger stacks just to make ndiswrapper work.
Did you try the rtl8180 driver that is in the stock kernels?
