I have installed Redhat 6.0 on my laptop, tecra 8000. Most components
are fine. I do seem to have one major problem -- not able to communicate
using either the modem that is built in or through any PCMCIA
network card (I have tried three different ones: Xircom, 3com and
D-Link DFE 10/100, another borrowed one that is purely 10Mbps one).
No luck :-(
Modem I heard is a winmodem -- so I have not even made any efforts to
get it to work.
More seriously, I seem to have a problem with PCMCIA altogether!
Any one aware of the situation with PCMCIA and tecra let me know what
the prognosis is? Gleaning from the info on the web, because of ToPic97
or some such problem, this appears to be a dead end? (I hope people in
the market for a new laptop are reading my post!)
Am I right in my conclusions?
