I have a Dell XPi100 Laptop, on which I have been running Slackware
3.6 (Kernel 2.0.35, pcmcia-cs 3.0.5) and successfully using a
D-Link DE650 Combo card. I have been trying to upgrade to Slack
7.1 (kernel 2.2.16, pcmcia-cs 3.1.16). The card apparently gives no
ident string - cardctl ident says "no product info available" on
both installations. However, the older system successfully
identifies and configures it using pcnet_cs. The new system
fails to recognise it.
Can I persuade the new setup to recognise the card ? Perhaps by editing a config file ?. Or can I manually load the drivers. If I do a modprobe pcnet_cs, nothing happens. No eth0 device.
I currently have the system dual booting, so I can try both installations. I also have a modem card which is successfully identified and configured on both setups.
