Iam just wondering, can anyone make this card work the first time (in Linux):) Brief Synopsis: Ihave a 3Com 3CCFE575CT and a Stinkpad 1261 iSeries (O2Micro...). I use Mandrake 7.1 w/ 2.2.15-4 kernel, and have installed the pcmcia ver 3.1.19 (got it yesterday) several times. I added lines to *.opts files like "PCIC..." and even enabled (then quickly disabled) PnP Bios detection from the "config" file. Now the most I was able to get is a very long ping time 10000+ and the same error "IRQ blocked by another device". Can anyone save me from my ineptitude? I follow your postings as pertaining to my troubles and ahve attempted to implement those solutions as fitting. Please advise me in this.
