IRQ on 3C589C PCMCIA card conflict

Post by Rob Lingelba » Fri, 25 Sep 1998 04:00:00



just installed Linux 5.1 on a Toshiba Tecra 780 notebook, with the
3C589C PCMCIA network card, and at boot get the message:

3c589_cs: RequestIRQ: Resource in use.

I have tried setting the card's IRQ (via the 3com card setup utility
in DOS) at IRQ 10, and at IRQ 5, and still get the error (base I/O is
0x300).  A look at /proc/interrupts shows that IRQ 10 is used by
"i82365", not sure what that is... but seems like if I set the card at
IRQ 5 I shouldn't see the error.  Any help is appreciated, thanks.

 i82365 is a pcmcia module. I do not see i82365 occupy any irq on my laptop.
My irq 10 is not even occupied. You can check pcmcia-HOWTO under
/usr/doc/pmcica-xxxxx
to see how to resolve device confliction. Usually irq 5 is preferable.

you have pcmcia/cardmgr running, and you don't see i82635 on an irq?
Wonder what i82635 is for?

thanks.

Luckily, mine (320cds) has a few spare irq, but this very morning I
had a look at Toshiba's site and they are aware that high-end
portables have few if any spare interrupts left (and give some
suggestions to try and improve the situation, where possible).

Look under Support for the FAQ.

Hope this helps.
