OK I just installed latest pclos after being away for over a year. Well had a piece of hardware not work(Netgear wna3100 wireless usb) Since I am very curious about learning this problem started a quest for me. LOL Well after trying and reading I found this http://sourceforge.net/apps/mediawiki/ndiswrapper/index.php?title=Netgear_WNA3100
Add the following to ntoskernal_io.c
wstdcall NTSTATUS WIN_FUNC(IoUnregisterPlugPlayNotification,1)
TODO(); /* Probably Not, legacy function abandoned in Windows 7 */
IOEXIT(return STATUS_SUCCESS); /* Linux doesn't use it either */
There is no need any more for custom compilation, it is already done in the current version(1.57) of ndiswrapper.
So after reading and try to understand GRUB, can I use GRUB to load this modified file? I would copy it do the recompiling(?) then replace file and would GRUB load this file? Right? also I would not delete or overwrite the original file just change ext. to old.
Is this the best way?
Tahks for any help!
