Question serial_cs device not found & null pointer 

Forum: PCMCIA Serial and Modem Issues
Date: 2000, Jan 18
From: Mario Rossi ArmyBot

I'm having problem trying to install a PCMCIA modem...(linux, slackware 7.0)
etc/pcmcia/config reflects what HOWTOs says
device "serial_cs"
  class "serial" module "misc/serial", "serial_cs"

I specified the manfid got with cardctl status, NO way I even tried specifying "serial_cs" as module ( 'cause there's serial_cs.o in pcmcia where is supposed to stay the file if no path is specified)

NO WAY stab says socket 1 is empty ( not true)

I'll add the whole boot log I got a null pointer probiung the second socket ( the modem ) , in fact the eth0 works fine but if you do cardctl status you see : Socket 0: 5V 16-bit card present Function 0: ready Socket 1: Socket 0: 5V 16-bit card present Function 0: ready,write protect <--- ????

Also it seems not to find the module serial_cs ( the same for serial) Could you help me ?

Thanks a lot ArmyBot
