I installed ndiswrapper 1.7 with a new 2.6.14 kernel (due to compilation issue between ndiswrapper 1.2 and kernel 2.6.14)
However, the box is freezing within the first 5 minutes after using network. (heavy network load seems to accelerate the freezing process)
I cannot ssh the box from another computer, the only answer is to hard shutdown the machine.
I am not in front of my box and i will post emerge info this evening
Does it work with kernel 2.6.15?
I only tried with 2.6.13-gentoo-r3, 2.6.14-gentoo and 2.6.14-ck7
Do you think i should test with 2.6.15 ?

It is worth a try, I guess .. it could solve your problem ..

however 2.6.15 is not out yet for gentoo-sources or ck-sources
I guess I will try with vanilla

gentoo-sources-2.6.15 is already in the tree but it is not tested for ~x86 yet. (I am doing that atm).

ok I will wait for it then
I just tried 2.6.15-ck1
Everything is running fine after mass network 10 min test.
I will let the box run this night and let you know tomorrow morning.
sorry, the box has frozen within 20 min.
I came back to ndiswrapper 1.2
Please test ndiswrapper-1.2-r1
where do I get it ?

Well when I post a comment like that it means that I just added it to CVS. This means that it will be available to you in an hour or two with emerge sync.
it is working fine with ndiswrapper-1.2-r1
does it help to deliver a working 1.7 ?
I should have remembered to mention this in the first place but this is an upstream issue any way and you should report it to the upstream developers. Good to hear that 1.2-r1 works for you. I will most likely be marking it stable. I kept this bug open this long because I was considering 1.7 going stable in bug #111029. Let's hope the next upstream release works better for you.
