More cardctl can see something....

Thanks for replying. cardctl reports the following :

#cardctl status
Socket 0:
  5V 16-bit PC Card
  function 0: [ready]
Socket 1:
  no card

I get exactly the same results with a D-Link DE-660 Ethernet PCMCIA card, and the same results if I start PCMCIA without the card in, then insert the card afterwards.

Just for comparison, the message log from another machine (same manufacturer, before they went and changed all their chipsets - this was a Cirrus PD6710 ISA-to-PCMCIA controller) reports the card as :

May 10 09:21:58 scarus cardmgr[282]: start cmd exited with status 126 and cardctl (from card services 3.0.9 reports)

#cardctl status
Socket 0:
  5V 16-bit card present
  Function 0: ready, battery dead, battery low

Any ideas how to proceed in debugging ? I'm quite happy fiddling with the source if neccessary.

Regards

Paul
