None It is really unsupported

(that seems obvious, since the drivers don't recognize it and the documentation doesn't list it as supported)

However, I would have expected that it would work anyway. What card(s) have you tried to use, and what were the results?

I haven't tried any other cards. But let me ask again: is there a chance that the controller is supported in one of the next releases of the PCMCIA-package?

None Have you tried any cards at all?

You haven't tried "any other cards"?  Other than what?  (To be clear,
I meant other PCMCIA cards, not other card readers)

I still would want to see kernel messages and hear how this PCI1031
controller behaves.  The PCMCIA drivers should function OK treating
this as an unknown bridge: that just means the drivers will not use
any vendor-specific extensions.

None More info about the PCI1031

I only tested our own PC-card (product of our company) which is an encryption-card. It works like a modem, so only a common serial-driver is necessary (serial_cs). The PC-card is ok and I know that it works on other Linux-PC's which are equipped with ISA PC-card readers. Here some more information about the behaviour of Linux: Card-insertion is not accompanied by a sound, LED of PC-card doesn't light up; cardctl ident: Socket 0/1: no product available; /var/run/stab: Socket 0/1: empty. Linux seems not to see the PC-card. Here an extract of the messages-file:
