A quick fix might be to just build the 3.1.8 PCMCIA driver release for
your new kernel.

The interrupt configuration code in post-3.1.8 packages is somewhat
different and is the most likely issue.  I assume that you are getting
hangs whether or not your CardBus card is inserted; you should check
that.  I'm surprised that you're having trouble, though, because the
Thinkpads tend to be well behaved (and I do my development mostly on a
770 series).

There are some suggestions for debugging startup problems in the
PCMCIA-HOWTO.  I'd probably start by trying to load the pcmcia_core
and i82365 modules by hand, with kernel messages sent to the console,
to see exactly where the lockup happens.

Then I'd try setting:


in /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia.

Message Administration

This form allows you to delete, move, or copy one or more messages. You can move messages by copying and deleting the original. The action will be applied to the messages you select above and all replies to those selected messages.

If you want to copy or move messages, specify the HyperNews path of a destination forum or message that all messages will be copied or moved to. The destination must already exist, so maybe create it first.

Path of Destination (a Forum or Message): (e.g. "test")

Notify Subscribers at destination

If you want to delete messages (the default), specify that here. If you want to move messages, you need to delete the original messages; placeholders will be left pointing to where they were moved.

Delete Messages

Caution: After deleteing messages (the default), if you have not copied them (i.e. no destination above), then the selected messages are not be recoverable.
