I have some problem with recognizing the PCMCIA network card MELCO LPC3-TX
with FreeBSD 4.1.
The card is defined in /etc/defaults/pccard.conf for PIO mode, but when I
tried to boot with it it could not be recognized.
The definition in the .conf file (from my head) is:
card "MELCO" "LPC3-TX"
config 0x1 "ed0" ? 0x30000 # some address I cannot recall
ether 0xff0 # or 0xff, forgot.
insert /some/script $device # forgot, and probably irrelevant
The first problem I had was that config 0x1 could not be found. So I
switched that to 'config auto "ed0" ...'.
After this I got a reply of the MAC address being FF:FF:FF:FF:FF:FF and the
device was not configured.
I guess I am hoping someone would enlighten me and solve this problem. As
the PAO package is not developed for 4.x, PAO is out of the question I
suppose. If it matters, I am attempting this on a Sony VAIO, and there is
nothing PCMCIA related in the BIOS configuration.
Thanks in advance.
