Sad Tecra550CDT and 2 ethernets IRQ problem 

Forum: PCMCIA on Toshiba laptops

From: Fred Beck FredBeck

I'm trying to get a Tecra550CDT to recognize two ethernet adaptors in preparation of setting it up as a firewall.

I'm running RH 6.1 and have 2 Linksys 10/100 cards (Socket0-PCMPC100, Socket1-EC2T). Both cards show up in /etc/pcmcia/config, and my current copy of /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia reads:

  PCMCIA=yes
  PCIC=i82365
  PCIC_OPTS="cs_irq=9 irq_list=10,11"
  CORE_OPTS=
  CARDMGR_OPTS="-f"

[I've tried many variations of the above...]

I've set up /etc/pcmcia/network to have two separate entries for :

  case "$ADDRESS" in
  *,0,*,*)
     <SNIP>
  ;;
  *,1,*,*)
    <SNIP>
  ;;
esac

The basic problem is that I keep getting the resource conflict: "RequestIRQ: Resource in use"

cardmgr seems to detect removal and insertion of the cards just fine. If I remove card0 and start/stop pcmcia, card1 does get recognized and setup on IRQ-10. Basically, cardmgr seems to only want IRQ-10 for both cards.

I'd appreciate any help anyone has to offer. Thanx!
