#338 Aspire 1357LMi with TI PCI1410 hangs

Marco Pallante

My system is an Acer Aspire 1357LMi. With lspci I have

00:07.0 CardBus bridge: Texas Instruments PCI1410 PC
card Cardbus Controller (rev 02)

When I turn PCMCIA system on (I use a Slackware 9.1),
the system boots, but after starting PCMCIA, suddenly
the system hangs.
This usually happens no more than 5 minutes after card
manager starts.

No messages are sent to system logger. At boot time,
instead, the output I see is:

Starting PCMCIA services:
Linux Kernel Card Services 3.1.22
options: [pci] [cardbus] [pm]

cs: IO port probe 0x0a00-0x0aff: clean.
cardmgr[62]: starting, version is 3.2.5

I don't have any PCMCIA card, I never put a card inside.
My kernel is 2.4.22, a standard precompiled kernel
shipped with Slackware.

I hope this bug report can be useful!

    The lockup probably means there is another device sharing
    PCI irq 5 that is generating interrupts, but has no Linux driver

    My first guess would be that these are ACPI interrupts.

    In that case you will need a kernel with ACPI support enabled.

    You can also check the output of 'lspci -v' to see if any other
    PCI devices are shown as sharing irq 5.
