you can download the generic package with sources in the RPM format from 
the following URL :


For the crash on DriverLoader 1.77, before you upgrade the RPM, please 
remove the Windows XP driver you have installed with the following 
commands in a root shell :

rm -fr /var/lib/driverloader
mkdir /var/lib/driverloader

Then, after the RPM package is upgraded, please send at 
support at linuxant.com the 'dumpdiag' that you can generate with the 
'dldrconfig --dumpdiag' command in a root shell. You should also send us 
the .INF of the Windows XP driver.
