Question Troubles with Vadem VG-469 - what am I doing wrong? 

Forum: PCMCIA Installation and Configuration Issues

From: Andrey Soplevenko stormbird

I'm installing the Vadem VG-469 isa pcmcia controller onto RedHat Linux 6.1 (kernel 2.2.12), but seems pcmcia package do not even see it. I have tried out two versions of them - the original version from RedHat distribution (3.0.14) and new one for this site (3.1.14). In both cases the controller and so the cards do not works. probe program detects no pcmcia platform and cardctl reports: "no pcmcia driver in /proc/devices". Also while starting pcmcia and pcmcia~ services this messages appears: "ds: no socket drivers loaded". At last here is some pcmcia related lines from log files:

Will gratefully accept any assistance. Andrey.

First, does this card have any jumpers for configuring the IO address
for the VG469?  The driver is looking at address 0x3e0 so if there is
a jumper for selecting between other addresses, you should select the
0x3e0 option.

If there is no such jumper, then perhaps this board is set up as an
ISA PnP device.  You can get the linux isapnptools package, and see if
it is able to detect and configure the card.  After that, the PCMCIA
modules should be able to find it.

If neither of these things seems to work, then I'm not sure what's
going on.  Maybe you have some other system device configured so that
it conflicts with the 0x3e0-0x3e1 IO ports needed by the VG-469.  If
you can verify this, you could try moving that other device to some
other IO address, if that's feasible.
