Question memory probe failure? 

Forum: PCMCIA Installation and Configuration Issues
Date: 1999, Nov 09
From: Thomas Schaefer schaefer

Hi:

 I'm trying to install a MultiTech PCMCIA card modem in my
Compaq Presario 1650 notebook. I am running Red Hat Linux
version 5.2 (kernel 2.0.36). The card is identified as
'anonymous memory' and the system log shows that various
memory ranges have been excluded. According to the
PCMCIA-HOWTO, the likely cause of this problem is a
memory probe failure. The suggested solution is to change
the included memory ranges in the /etc/pcmcia/config.opts
file. I have tried several different ranges, e.g.
0xd0000-0xdfff, 0xd8000-0xdffff, but to no avail.

 The card works fine, I have been able to use it under
Windows 98 (I also tried to deduce the memory range
those drivers use, but that didn't help either).
