help needed to bring up a pcmcia modem.

Post by Lupei Zh » Sun, 07 Jan 2001 03:34:11


   I installed RH7.0 on my Dell4000 laptop. I am having problem to get
the modem (Xircom cardbus) working. Linux recognizes the card as shown
from "cardctl ident":

Socket 0:
  product info: "Xircom", "CardBus Ethernet II 10/100", "CBEII-10/100",
  manfid: 0x0105, 0x0103
  function: 6 (network)
Socket 1:
  product info: "Xircom", "CardBus Modem 56WG", "CBM56WG", "1.00"
  manfid: 0x0105, 0x1000
  function: 2 (serial)

but it failed to configure the card while excuting "modprobe serial_cs"
and complains:
serial_cs: ParseTuple: No more items

can anyone help me to solve this problem.  I've put /var/log/messages



here are the messages from /var/log/message:
