backtrack 2 + n3 + vmware fusion hangs
Anybody using this combination. BT 2 was one release that it was claimed would work with the rokland n3 but on my machine when I try to connect the USB adapter it spins and spins and spins.
Exactly what chipset is contained on rokland n3? wheres your lsusb output?
My life is this forum
This happened to me with bt2/bt3 + zydas1211b + vmware 6. Now I use vmware 7 but i don't know if it still hangs. When i have the time i'll try.

What exactly is your bt4 configuration with the n3? Which driver are you using?
I don't have n3, but I have a pair of no-name (generic) usb dongles equipped with exactly the same if not similar chipset. The driver under bt4 should be zd1211.
(edit) I should also add that I don't use vmware fusion. I used vmware workstation and ran bt in live mode (i.e. no virtualisation whatsoever).
So if I'm using the N3 with BT pre 4 or Bt3 then which driver should I use? There are so many of them. The ones that came on the n3 driver CD, the older
as well as
When I tried to build any of these and put them in bt 3 I ended up with invalid module format errors.
