Question install pcmcia on twinhead p79tx 

Forum: PCMCIA Installation and Configuration Issues
Date: 2000, Jul 20
From: liu liqun happydog

I installed redhat 6.2 on my twinhead p79tx (about two years old). The PCMCIA control IC is TI PCI1131. I try to use a xircom creditcard ethernet card on my laptop. Under win98, all the hardware work well. Under win98, the IRQ for the net card is 11, port 1000-100f, mem 02003000 to 02003fff , 02004000-02004ff the IRQ for the PCI1131 is 10, mem 02000000-02000fff, 02003000 -02004fff. the mem for card service is 02001000-02001fff

At first, I let the linux probe the information for me. But it lock up at boot time. I set the PCIC_OPTS="irq_list=10,11" in /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia and exclude all the irq except 10 ,11 in config.opt. The system still lock up at boot time. I find this in the log file.

Jul 19 00:36:03 newstart cardmgr[414]: no pcmcia driver in /proc/devices
Jul 19 00:36:03 newstart cardmgr[414]: exiting

Then I set the do_scan=0,include the new mem window (0x68000000-0x68000fff). the system can not boot too. If I remove the card from the socket, the system can boot successfuly. But I will lock again after I inset the card.

Below is waht I found in the log file.

Can you tell me what shall I do next?
