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 support@linuxant.com.

PatchDescription
dldr-2.50-multicast.patch

Required for Ubuntu 10.10 support.



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.

User comment:

I'd just like to thank you folk for making your Driverloader module available direct to the general public, at such a reasonable price. I recently decided to set up a 802.11g wireless network and was in despair trying to find devices with *any* Linux support. Needless to say, my local computer hardware stores were less than useless in providing any help whatsoever. At last I was pointed to your web site, downloaded a 30 day trial license, and all sprang into life. Been running for 30 days now, and have purchased the full licenses. Good software, well presented, and a doddle to install and use. Thanks again
