Re: Sad "Bad address mapping" on Sony N505VE (toby cabot)

I don't understand how something like this could develop all of a
sudden.  Does it matter if you cold boot linux, versus warm booting
from windows?  If the reported bridge mapping address is 0x000000dc,
that would certainly be a problem; the BIOS is supposed to fill this
in, and it is putting it in space used by your system RAM.

The pcmcia_core module has a parameter, cb_mem_base, that lets you
override the bridge address selected by the BIOS.  You could try using
that as a workaround, assuming this isn't just a symptom of something
more serious.  My first guess was "hardware failure" until you said it
still works under Windows.
