Re: How to install Visa drivers under 2.6.29 kernel sources

I really wonder why some propriatary driver lays it's dirty fingers on init_mm.

Seriously, drivers are *NOT* supposed to play with the MMU/VMs directly. Sooner or later this will crash *horribly*.

 

That's yet another example why proprietary drivers are really, really bad.

Here's a small list of other examples ... note the long list of linked forum postings.
