On my PC I've installed SuSE Linux 6.0 (Kernel 2.0.36). I tried to install an SCM PC-Card Reader (PCI-SwapBox SBP-D2) with the PCI1031 controller. Since Linux declared the reader as 'unknown PCI-to-PCMCIA' I installed a newer PCMCIA-package (3.0.14). Unfortunately without success, in the PCMCIA-HOW-TO I finally found a list with the recognized controllers. The PCI1031 doesn't figure.
So, is that controller really not supported and if not, is it planned to support it soon? And will it work in my system with Kernel 2.0.36?
