I'm having troubles configuring my PCMCIA card.
As the subect said, it's a ComOne (don't blame me, i didn't chose the manufacturer ;o).
The point is : it seems to be recognized (see after) but when i come to bring up eth0, it fails.
I tried to put some lines in /etc/pcmcia/config.opts as described in the PCMCIA-HOWTO, but nohing seems to work.
My question is : is it a configuration problem OR is it a card problem (if it is, i'll need some help on how to get unstuck from this :o)
here are the informations I stored about my card :
linux:/home/flo # lspci -v

Thanks for your help !
I forgot :
I'm using Mepis 2004 on 2.6.7 (but it was the same problem on RH9 2.4.x an SuSE9.1 2.6.x)
cardctl version 3.2.5
the config.opts i tried :
card "COM1 SA GSM ISDN LAN"
version "COM1 SA", "MC223 CARD", "NOKIA 6110", "4T129000000UXX"
manfid 0xffff, 0x0601
it doesn't work :o(
I also went on the manufacturer web site and it said :
GNU/Linux compatibility :
- MC223 Platinium Card 3 in 1
Not compatible for ISDN, GSM may work (not tested), LAN not tested.
So i'd like to test this LAN feature.
thanks for your attention
I have no information about this card. Based on what you've posted, the card is identifying itself as a serial port device and that is how it was configured. It is sometimes difficult to support multifunction cards without information from the manufacturer. Can you also post the output of 'dump_cis'?
Hi dave, here is the outpout of dump_cis
vers_1 4.1, "COM1 SA", "MC223 CARD", "NOKIA 6110", "4T129000000UXX"
manfid 0xffff, 0x0601
config base 0x0420 mask 0x0077 last_index 0x0d
cftable_entry 0x05 [default]
io 0x03f8-0x03ff [lines=10] [8bit] [range]
irq mask 0x86bc [level] [shared]
memory 0xfff000-0xffffff @ 0x0000
io 0x02f8-0x02ff [lines=10] [8bit] [range]
io 0x03e8-0x03ef [lines=10] [8bit] [range]
io 0x02e8-0x02ef [lines=10] [8bit] [range]
io 0x0000-0x0007 [lines=10] [8bit] [range]
hope it helps.
If the manufacturer information are required, i'll need your help on what to ask (and how to ask ;o).
Well, you would need to find out how to configure the network side of the card, and also what chip set is used for the network function.
