Hi everyone!

How to properly blacklist any driver that is built into Linux? For example, I need to disable built in rtl8187 driver which apparently conflicts with ndiswrapper when I'm trying to make my Netgear WG111v2 to work.


Thank you!

With your file editor of choice, open:

/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist

The syntax is:

blacklist "driver_name"
