I'll give this a try. I didn't do it already because this driver
wasn't listed as one of the big stack size ones.

if you have obtained the
driverloader: probe of 0000:00:10.0 failed with error -5
error message, it means that you have installed the right Windows XP driver.
You are probably using a Fedora Core 2 kernel with 4K stacks and the
Windows driver for some chipset requires as much as 12K of stacks.
We offer a pre-compiled RPM of a Fedora Core 2 kernel with 16K stacks as
a convenience for our users. You can obtain it from the DriverLoader
download page at
Then, install the kernel and reboot in this new kernel. Finally download
and install the DriverLoader package for this new kernel version. You
can also obtain it from the DriverLoader download page at
If you require more assistance, please send at support at linuxant.com the
output of 'dumpdiag'. Type the following in a root shell:
Just send us the generated file located in /tmp
('driverloaderdiag.txt'). It'll help us solve the problem.
