I can't compile pcmcia-cs-3.1.33 for Linux2.4.x+FADS+MPC850.
Does anyone compile it successfully?
If successfully compiled, how do I load the modules to work with linux?
I found while I port the m8xx_pcmcia into kernel.
It will tell me there is no /etc/devices file.
Could someone help me?
I would like to know the complete procedures about the porting.
I am looking a way to have CompactFlash and HDD working together on a MPC8xx platform. Ultimately both (IDE, IDE_CS) systems calls m8xx_ide_init_hwif_ports to initialize ATA register location/hardware. Right now this function is pretty stupid: it assumes that it is being called from the same subsystem and initialize stuff as if it is always a hard drive hanging off of the processor bus.
One idea I have is to make m8xx_ide_init_hwif_ports smarter and have it identify from the parameters passed which stack it is being called from so that it can initialize to the appropriate hardware. Right now I don't see anything that can indicate/differentiate between the two.
Would anyone else has any ideas about this. I would appreciate hearing your suggestions.
I am cross posting this to Linux PCMCIA forums as well.
