Dell Inspiron 8000 and Slack 9.1


Successfully installed slack 9.1 on Inspiron 8000 system. Currently hanging up on this line during boot up:


cs: 10 port probe 0x0800-0x08ff:

Line before this reads:

cs: 10 port probe 0x0c00-0x0cff: clean.


Im pretty new to linux, any help would be appreciated

PS: these errors occur after PCMCIA initialization

i know in Gentoo there is a separate package for pcmcia called pcmcia-cs, you might want to disable the kernel pcmcia stuff and use that instead or if you can't even get into the system see if there is a kernel command line argument to boot the system with, i.e. nopcmcia or something

this is a laptop, right? so in the end you *might* need pcmcia support (for ethernet card or whatever), again, i don't know if slackware has this but there is a separate package for pcmcia in Gentoo called pcmcia-cs, you can find info on this at:

http://pcmcia-cs.sourceforge.net/

hth.
