Using the tips at PCMCIA HOWTO ( console 8 and so .. ), I get the following:

cs:memory probe 0xa0000000 - 0xa0ffffff clean SYM53C500: invalid IRQ3 specified SCSI0: SYM53C500 at 0x130, IRQ 0 , fast PIO mode SCSI: 1 host

Here, usually the computer hungs for 3-4 seconds and reboots.

The IRQ is free ( IRQ 5 has the same behaviour; they are used troubleless for other PC cards ).

Sometimes ( usualy the first/second try ), I get the following:

Dec 16 21:25:05 dione kernel: SYM53C500: Warning: PIO error!
Dec 16 21:25:05 dione kernel: SYM53C500: Warning: PIO error!

Dec 16 22:00:06 dione kernel: scsi : 0 hosts.

Dec 16 22:00:07 dione cardmgr[88]: + /dev/n/a: No such file or directory
Dec 16 22:00:07 dione cardmgr[88]: stop cmd exited with status 1
Dec 16 22:00:07 dione cardmgr[88]: executing: 'rmmod sym53c500_cs'
Dec 16 22:00:07 dione cardmgr[88]: executing: 'rmmod sg'

If I activate de debugging option in the SYM53C500, I get a cascade of ( until now ) unreadable messages, and the screen border changes to blue ( is a debugging feature).

Thanks again, and again :-)

If you want to delete messages (the default), specify that here. If you want to move messages, you need to delete the original messages; placeholders will be left pointing to where they were moved.

Delete Messages
