I've investigated a bit to understand why it is working in single user mode and found that the problem occurs when ALSA drivers are loaded before PCMCIA. I have a sound card that requires the latest CVS ALSA source tree in order to work (a YAMAHA YMF-744B card supported by the new ymfpci.o module). BTW, I had no problem with PCMCIA pre-3.1.15 and ALSA CVS-2000-05-31. It started to crash with PCMCIA 3.1.15 (or pre-3.1.16) and ALSA CVS-2000-06-02. I've upgraded ALSA first and AFAIR it was still working.. I'll try to look more deeply into this later.. OTOH, I'm not able to pass packets through my Xircom card until I enable the promiscuous-mode. With pre-3.1.15, a ifdown/ifup was usually enough.
