Thanks again for a quick reply!
I am not with an Ubuntu computer right now (I'm using Lenny), so I can't confirm that ohci_hcd is loaded or that it's tied to ssb in the final release. But I'm pretty sure that it is, but I could be wrong.
I have tried that and ethernet does not connect correctly if I load them in the following order (after removing them first):
Can't you just load b44 after ndiswrapper is loaded?
which is very puzzling.
No it's not the same and that's where I need advice from people that are more familiar w/ compiling kernels than I. I write:
Thanks for the location of the ssb module in kernel config. I am now trying to set CONFIG_USB_OHCI_HCD_SSB to n and compile the kernel. My problem is that when I follow kernel compiling instructions like this one, that option reverts to "not being set".
Wouldn't that be the same thing? I would think that if it is not set, you cannot say yes or no.
but after I do "make menuconfig" and "make-kpkg clean" and "fakeroot make-kpkg --initrd --append-to-version=-custom kernel_image kernel_headers", it reverts to it not being set. This happens even if I manually change the .config file after the "make menuconfig" step and/or "make-kpkg clean" step... ?
