Question thinkpad 390x, 512m ram, and 3ccfem556b 

Forum: 3Com PCMCIA Ethernet Adapter Issues

From: Pete Toscano sigsegv


i have a thinkpad 390x for work. it's got the "thinkpad port replicator with advanced etherjet feature" -- the eepro100 driver works for this -- (for the office) and a 3com "10/100 lan+56k modem" -- 3ccfem556b -- (for the road). it came with 64m ram. everything worked fine with the 2.2.14 kernel and pcmcia-cs 3.1.9.

recently, i got an upgrade to 512m ram. the ethernet card in the port replicator still works, but i see an interesting message in /var/log/messages:

  "steinmetz kernel: Intel PCIC probe: <5> Bad bridge mapping at 0x10000000"

when i remove the tp from the port replicator though, and boot up with the 3com card, the card does not work, even after an upgrade to pcmcia-cs 3.1.10. i get the following messages in /var/log/messages:

  "steinmetz kernel: Linux PCMCIA Card Services 3.1.10
   steinmetz kernel: kernel build: 2.2.14 #2 Fri Jan 21 19:41:51 EST 2000
   steinmetz kernel: options: [pci] [cardbus] [apm]
   steinmetz kernel: PCI routing table version 1.0 at 0xfdf40
   steinmetz kernel: Intel PCIC probe: <5> Bad bridge mapping at 0x10000000!
   steinmetz kernel: not found.
   steinmetz kernel: ds: no socket drivers loaded!
   steinmetz cardmgr[1088]: starting, version is 3.1.10
   steinmetz cardmgr[1088]: no pcmcia driver in /proc/devices
   steinmetz cardmgr[1088]: exiting"

i configured the pcmcia-cs package with cardbus card support, but without "trusting" versions. i tried it with and without the pnp bios resource checking.

any ideas about what might fix this problem? is it just user brain damage?
