Hi everyone. I bought an Acer Aspire 1357LMi and I installed Slackware 9.1, but experienced some strange problems with hotplug and PCMCIA subsystems.
When both subsystems are active, my laptop hangs during boot, just after it started the card manager
(it seems that it can probe both interrupts and IOs). I think this is due to the PCMCIA subsystem because when I deactive hotplug I have the same problem.
Deactivating the PCMCIA subsystem and leaving hotplug on, causes the system to hang but without a visible rule: sometime (really not very often) at boot time, but usually during system use.
I tried to disabling interrupt and IO probing for PCMCIA (with hotplug turned off), but in this case I experience the random hang as if PCMCIA is off and hotplug is on.
System log seems to be not so useful: no error/warning/notice message before the hang.
Has anyone experienced the same problems? Any idea? For the moment both PCMCIA and hotplug are off and the system goes very well!
