Just putting a system together (RH6.2) and added a PCMCIA
ISAbus adapter (with a RICOH RF5C?96 chipset) to fit a wireless pcmcia card.
Everytime I launch pcmcia (/etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia start) I get:
kernel: Linux PCMCIA Card Services 3.1.8 kernel: kernel build: 2.2.14-5.0 #1 Tue Mar 7 20:35:25 EST 2000 kernel: options: [pci] [cardbus] [apm] kernel: Intel PCIC probe: kernel: Ricoh RF5C296/396 ISA-to-PCMCIA at port 0x3e0 ofs 0x00, 1 socket kernel: host opts : none kernel: ISA irqs (default) = 3,7,9,10,11,12,15 polling interval = 1000 ms cardmgr: starting, version is 3.1.8
and the entire system crashes. Note, no pcmcia card is plugged in at this moment.
finally I figured out that my motherboard has a built-in LPT2 port, which to my knowledge is using the same base io-address 0x3e0, as the pcmcia ISA adapter.
unfortunately the motherboard does not allow to turn the lpt2 port :-((. From what I've learned so far the ricoh PCMCIA chipset allows memory remapping. Is this supported with the current pcmcia package? If so, how would I configure it?
