[driverloader] Trouble with recent kernels and new driverloader

for the '2.6.8-rc3' kernel, since this is a beta kernel, we do not provide 
support for this kernel.

For the other kernels, please try with different versions of the Windows XP 
driver to see if there is a difference. On DriverLoader 1.77, since you are 
using Debian, you could try to create the '/etc/modutils/mydriverloader' file 
and add the following line to this file :

options driverloader stackworkaround=1

Then, run the following commands in a root shell :


If both of these suggestions do not fix the problem, please send at 
support at linuxant.com a new 'dumpdiag'. You should send this dump while 
running DriverLoader 1.77 on your '2.4.26' kernel. You can generate the dump 
with the 'dldrconfig --dumpdiag' command in a root shell.
