I have been using driverloader for quite some time on a Fedora Core 1 loaded
IBM X31 laptop with the Intel 2100b card. Somewhere after 1.58 but
definitely reproducible in driverloader-1.62, the laptop will hang on boot
sporadically while trying to obtain a IP from DHCP. Only way out of the hang
is a hard reset. I have tried using both the generic packages and the Fedora
2.4.22-1.2166.nptl package. Thinking that it could be the 2166 kernel I
downgraded back to the 2149 kernel with the same results. In addition, I
dual boot SuSE 9 and can reproduce the hang there as well during boot at the
same point (DHCP request). Only resolution seems to be falling back to the
next previous version I have (1.58) which works perfectly.
Any suggestions?
