RT2561 cause kernel panic



  • Hi all,

    I have a problem with a Wireless USB stick (Hercules hwgusb2-54-v2) which should be supported by rum driver.
    I would like to configure it as access point (AP). So I configure it like in tutorials (I see the interface, … everythings seems to be OK). When I use a client to connect to the AP, the client see the AP SSID, however, when it tries to connect, it cause a kernel panic on pfsense ("Fatal trap 18: integer divide fault while in kernel mode")
    Have you ever heard of such a problem ?
    For information, I use pfsense 2.01.

    Thank You,

    Paulem



  • I suggest you try one of the pfSense 2.1 snapshot builds. These use FreeBSD 8.3 which includes a patch to the rum driver that looks like it might address the problem you reported.



  • Thanks for your reply. I will try this solution and let you know the result.
    However, can I patch the rum driver directly in my pfsense 2.0.1  (because I use some package like snort…) ??

    Not easily.



  • No problem with pfSense 2.1 snapshot builds… ! Are there any release date for pfsense 2.1 ?

    Thank you for your solution.
