I had the same problem with my 700CT, under both Mandrake 6.0 & Caldera OpenLinux 2.3.
What I found was that my PCMCIA configuration files needed some modifications to recognize both cards. Once I made the following changes, I was able to insert & remove PC-Cards with ease.
Try the following:
In the /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia file.
NOTE: The above file assumes you want your PCMCIA modem recognized as ttyS0. You must be sure that your BIOS is set to use the internal serial port as com2: (irq=3, port=2f8)
Otherwise, remove "4" from the "irq_list=" entry.
Next, modify the /etc/pcmcia/config.opts file:
- Make sure that the following entries are present -
exclude irq 3
exclude irq 5
exclude irq 7
exclude irq 12
exclude irq 14
exclude irq 15
- Comment out the following entry -
# exclude irq 4
NOTE: The above entry again assumes that you want your PCMCIA modem recognized as ttyS0.
After these modifications, I was able to see PC-Cards as they were inserted into or removed from each slot.
I had to make one more file modification in order for the modem to automatically work with kPPP. Add the following line to the /etc/rc.d/rc.local file:
setserial /dev/modem auto_irq autoconfig
Hope this helps.
