Are you sure? It looks to me like epic_cb and serial_cb were loaded.

That would be wrong; pcnet_cs is a 16-bit driver and won't work with a
CardBus card. But I think your addition was ignored.

This is your problem. This card requires a big block of IO ports.
The error message is described in the PCMCIA-HOWTO; the solution is to
add a bigger IO port window to /etc/pcmcia/config.opts, such as:
include port 0x1000-0x17ff
See if that helps.
Thanks, allocating more IO helped by Jan Calmered, 2000, Aug 14
To quick to be happy, seems to have some IRQ problem still by Jan Calmered, 2000, Aug 14
Try some other irq_mode values by David Hinds, 2000, Aug 14
Tried irq_mode=3 and got it to stop complaining about IRQ9 but still not OK by Jan Calmered, 2000, Aug 16
