Forum: PCMCIA Installation and Configuration Issues
Re: Sad System hangs when starting pcmcia service... (Eric Maes)
Re: None Not interrupts: either IO ports or memory (David Hinds)

David, Thanks for the tips. I have recompiled the package with Pnp bt that did not seem to make much difference. I then have experimented somewhat with ioport and memory ranges and even though I really did not know what I was doing, succeeded in getting to start the pcmcia service (I think). This is what I now see /var/log when starting up pcmcia:

Mar 14 20:17:43 bilbo cardmgr[1086]: executing: './network start eth1' 

At this point, my machine still worked! However when I try to bring up the interface either by running ifconfig by hand, or by customizing network.opts, I can just manage to enter a couple of commands after which my machine hangs... When I rebooted the machine with a non default network.opts and having set pc_debug=3 in /etc/pcmcia/ray_cs.opts, at the point where the pcmcia service was started, my console was flooded with messages: ray_dev_start_xmit busy At which point I had to reboot in single user mode to disable pcmcia at boot... So now I don't know whether I have a pcmcia or a Webgear problem...

Thanks for your help - Eric
