I have been rocking along using F9 with ndiswrapper 1.52 ever since the beta came out a few weeks ago. I compile it from the source and it has always worked well. On Friday, I updated via YUM and rebooted on Saturday morning. After I rebooted and then recompiled, it would no longer work ( I could no longer get wireless to connect). The messages in the dmesg log are shown below. Unfortunately, I need this laptop and had to reinstall something to be able to work so I reinstalled FC8 which is now working fine.
