pcmcia modem card and sound card installation problem

pcmcia modem card and sound card installation problem

Post by CK H » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00



I am using a pcmcia Practical modem card and ESS Maestro-2E sound chip. The
pcmcia port can be detected by the RedHat 6.1 but the modem and sound chip
do not work. How can it make them work?
I am a new user. Can you give me the exact command lines that I have to
enter? Thanks in advance

1. PCMCIA Ethernet Card Driver Problem - SMC EZ Card 10/100 PC Card

I just bought an "SMC EZ Card 10/100 Mbps PC Card", which from looking at
some lists of supported cards, looks like it is supported by tulip_cb.  
However, apparenly tulip_cb has been integrated into tulip for the 2.4
kernel using the hotplug interface.  

The card is detected.

"cardctl ident" reveals:

Socket 0:
  no product info available
Socket 1:
  product info: "SMC", "8041TX-10/100-PC-Card", "", ""
  manfid: 0x01bf, 0x8041
  function: 6 (network)

After adding the manfid info to /etc/pcmcia/config, it recognizes the card
by name, but fails with one high and one low beep.  /var/log/messages shows:

Jan 18 23:54:53 localhost cardmgr[1067]: initializing socket 1

Jan 18 23:54:54 localhost cardmgr[1067]: + Hint: insmod errors can be
caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ
parameters

I'm running a RedHat 7.1 system  Does this mean that the tulip driver is
not compatible with my new card?  If so, can anyone recommend a very
well-supported and compatible pcmcia ethernet card?

Thanks,
