This page contains patches which can be applied to the latest release of DriverLoader for the generic package in the TAR format. These patches can fix various bugs and add support for kernels which were not available at the moment of the release of the latest version of DriverLoader. These patches are likely to be included in a future release of DriverLoader.
If you have any problems with these patches, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
How to apply these patches
The easiest way to install patches is to use the
dldrconfig --patch command in a root shell with the latest version of DriverLoader installed. If the machine doesn't have an active Internet connection, you can use the
dldrconfig --patch file.patch command instead, where
file.patch is a patch file downloaded from this page. Patching is currently only supported with the TAR package format.
Advanced users can use the
patch utility to patch the software instead of using the
dldrconfig --patch command.
Patches for Linux kernels
Because some Windows drivers (notably for Intel Centrino cards) require at least 12K of stack to operate properly and the default Linux kernel stack size is a little less than 8K, these patches can be used to build custom kernels with 16K of stack. The kernel option CONFIG_16KSTACKS will be added by the patch and should be enabled in your configuration.
