#362 Comment of card "AmbiCom AMB8110 Fast Ethernet"

Xiaoju Fan

I have to remove the comment of section card "AmbiCom
AMB8110 Fast Ethernet" in /etc/pcmcia/config, or my
pcmcia net card can not work.

I found this very old, 16 bits card from the bottom of
my drawer. I just need on for my old Thinkpad 390X.
However, I found neither debian sarge-installer nor
gentoo livecd can not recognize it. But debian woody cd
and knoppix-3.6 do. I diffed the two config files and
found it's OK if I uncomment the section of section
card "AmbiCom AMB8110 Fast Ethernet".

I'm not familar with this forum, I don't know the
reason it was ommented out. Can we uncomment it in
future version? I see sentence says # this is not
specific enough: before the section, but I think not
specific enouth is much better than unusable at all.

Thanks a lot.

    The "not specific enough" comment means that including that
    entry actually interferes with correct operation of other
    cards; so just uncommenting it is not an option. Please
    post the output of "cardctl ident" and I'll be able to
    replace the existing entry with a more specific one.
