Hello, I have an as it seems common problem for O2Micro (at least on Acer notebooks). If my network card already receives packets during the initialization of pcmcia-cs (either at boot time or when plugging in the card with the connector attached), I get dropped interrupts and some exit status 0x80. If I start pcmcia with the cards connector detached and attach it after the two beeps everything is perfect. I already tried every possible solution to no extend, including - excluding all possible interrupts that might conflict (and it should not be an interrupt conflict, as I get almost 1MB/s on this cheap 10Mbit card) - module "pcnet_cs" opts "mem_speed=1000 delay_output=1 delay_time=20" - any combination in PCIC_OPTS="pci_int=9 irq_list=11,9 pci_csc=0 do_scan=0" If it were not for trying to patch up the kernel with the swsusp patch, I'd call this bug cosmetic, but it messes up the suspend/resume cycle (I can overcome this by remembering to remove the card before suspend, but I forget and the machine messes up.)
