Hi all,

I am trying to install a PCMCIA network card on my laptop (specs at bottom)i have un compressed my kernel (2.3.24) and pcmcia-cs-3.0.14.tar.gz into /usr/src. when i
 make config in the pcmcia dir. everthing goes fine, but when i do make all a whole lot of
 errors come up, which finishs with:

 ../include/pcmcia/k_compat.h:271: parse error before 'unsigned'
 ../include/pcmcia/k_compat.h:273: parse error before '&'
 ../include/pcmcia/k_compat.h:273: warning: function declaration isn't a prototype
 ../include/pcmcia/k_compat.h:273: parse error before 'unsigned'
 make[1]: *** [i82365.o] Error 1
 make[1]: Leaving directory '/usr/src/pcmcia-cs-3.0.14/modules'
 make: *** [all] Error 2

i decided to try a new version, and when i try the 3.1.8 PCMCIA package i get the error:
make[1]: *** No rule to make target '/usr/src/linux/drivers/net/ibmtr.c', needed by ibmtr.o' Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory '/usr/src/pcmcia-cs-3.1.8/clients'
make: *** [all] Error 2

when i upgrade the kernel to 2.3.40 i get this error:

i82365.c: In function 'set_bridge_opts':
i82365.c:1249: incompatible types in assignment
i82365.c:1249: structure has no member named 'next'

Any ideas? I am I using buggy/unstable versions of the kernel/pcmcia package? if so which versions of both pcmcia and kernel do you advise that are stable and compatible?

Thanks,
