Suse 8.0 runnig otherwise fine, but serious configuration problems
with Lucent Orinoco Silver pcmcia card. I've tried to make it work
accorcing to pcmcia-howto, but no results. I've also read the Suse
database articles, no help. I'm not very experienced with Linux, but I
think I've done according to instructions.
If I install Suse from scratch happens the folloewing:
Two beeps when starting, high the low, when probing the card, meaning
card recognised, but not configured
If I choose Preferences-Information-Pcmcia, card shows up fine.
So, the I try to do according to the howto instructions. Installing
pcmcia-cs-3.1.3 -package and running the make -commands.
Then: Comp hangs on boot with the following lines in the "loader"
Starting external PCMCIA (using scheme: Suse)startproc: exit status of
parent of /sbin/cardmgr: 1 Failed
Starting RPC portmgr daemon Done
Starting SSH daemon ....... hangs here
Could someone more experienced tell me how to configure the PCMCIA
card. It works fine under XP, my network is "infrastructure type"
Intel P 4, 1.6 Ghz, 256, MSI Ultra-ARU, Nvidia Geforce 3, SbLive!,
Orinoco pc to pcmcia bridge, Orinoco SIlver ethernet card.
Thanks beforehand :)
