I have a Toshiba 4070CDS. Till two days ago my two PCMCIA cards worked just fine (kernel level 2.2.9 and pcmcia 3.0.13).
On friday I installed a kernel patch to allow the access to
the HW counters of the CPU. I had to rebuild the kernel and
I used the standard configuration file (defconfig in /usr/src/linux/arch/i386). The kernel built just fine.
The problem is that since then, I can not use the PCMCIA cards anymore!
I have run make modules and make modules_install, upgraded the PCMCIA to the latest 3.1.17 but still the cards do not work.
The cards (a modem card and a 10/100 Mbit Ethernet cards) are recognized by the system. When I insert them I get the High beep followed by the Low beep. I have disabled the sound module to prevent possible conflicts.
The error message I get in the /var/log/messages are the following.
For the ethernet card:
"bind pcnet_cs to socket 1 failed: Operation not permitted"
For the modem:
"bind serial_cs to socket 0 failed: Operation not permitted"
Note that the kernel level is still 2.2.9.
Any suggestion to overcome this problem? My "feeling" is that I have a problem in the kernel configuration file, but unfortunately I can not find any information about this issue.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide,
