More 'Twas a buffer overflow error...

Re: News The problem is in Cardmgr! (Andrew Fernandes)

It turns out that I was using a waaaaay too long

 module "wavelan2_cs" opts "irq_list=11 network_name=Studio20 port_type=3 station_name=Herbie channel=10 enable_encryption=y key_1=xxxxxxxxxxxxx transmit_key_id=1 pc_debug=0x7fffffff debug_flags=0xffffffff"

The line blew cardmgr's internal buffers.

That's the good news.

The bad news is now I can bring up both the Lucent and the GPL driver... and neither of them can talk to Windows.

I'm not impressed, Lucent...

I'll call their tech support and kvetch...

(David - I'll email my patch to you to look at)!

This form allows you to delete, move, or copy one or more messages. You can move messages by copying and deleting the original. The action will be applied to the messages you select above and all replies to those selected messages.

If you want to copy or move messages, specify the HyperNews path of a destination forum or message that all messages will be copied or moved to. The destination must already exist, so maybe create it first.

Notify Subscribers at destination

If you want to delete messages (the default), specify that here. If you want to move messages, you need to delete the original messages; placeholders will be left pointing to where they were moved.

Delete Messages

Caution: After deleteing messages (the default), if you have not copied them (i.e. no destination above), then the selected messages are not be recoverable.
