Hej everybody!

I am using DELL Latitude CPx Laptop with 3CCFE575CT-D Ethernet card. I wanted to try the new kernel 2.4.0-test2, and what I observed is: - I have kernel panic when I put out the PCMCIA card. To solve it I just compiled the 3c575_cs.o from pcmcia-cs-3.1.16 (there are major imrovements for this card) and copied it into /lib/modules/2.4.0-test2/pcmcia (before I removed the symbolic link) and I do not have this problem anymore. But when I look into /var/log/messages I can see:

When putting the pcmcia card into the slot :

I have some questions that I would like to know: I am courious What does it mean ? Which config file shoul I modify ?

Jul 3 14:14:36 localhost kernel: PCI: No IRQ known for interrupt pin A of device 02:00.0. Please try using pci=biosirq.

Another question What is the role of cb_enabler? Or where I can find the manual about it ?

/var/log/messages when I take out the card seems to be normal.

Jul  3 14:14:37 localhost kernel: cs: cb_free(bus 2)

Jul  3 14:14:37 localhost cardmgr[489]: executing: 'modprobe -r cb_enabler'

Thanks for help
