I am pleased to see that I am not the only one having this problem :-(

I have also concluded that there is an IO port issue but don't know how to proceed. I opened up a request with the card manufacturer on Friday 25 Aug. Here is a transcript of the problem statement:


Product: FRITZ!Card PCMCIA

ISDN-Controller : FRITZ!Card PCMCIA

Operating system : linux 2.2.16 (redhat 6.2 distribution)

CAPI driver : Rev 1.12

I have a FRITZ!Card PCMCIA (v2.0) which I use with my Sony VAIO C1XN laptop. It worked well when I was running Windows 2000 on the laptop. I recently installed linux redhat 6.2 on the laptop. I compiled the kernel 2.2.16 and compiled the pcmcia cardservices package.

Everything works. I am able to use my other pcmcia cards (3com and Xircom) network and modem cards.

I manually added the FRITZ!Card drive to the pcmcia card services (fcpcmcia_cs.c) and recompiled. I configured /etc/pcmcia/config to recognize the card. I compiled the fcpcmcia.o module. I compiled capi and isdn modules into the kernel. When I insert the card, the fcpcmcia_cs.o module is unable to determine the IO port of the card. To help understand what is happening, here are the kernel messages when I start the pcmcia card services:

and here are the kernel messages when I insert the FRITZ!Card:

I was wondering if I need to manually configure the IO port in /etc/pcmcia/config.opts.

Do you have any suggestions?

Thank You.

Marc Beuchat


I'll keep you tuned if I hear back from them.
