Assistance with PCMCIA Wireless in Zenwalk 7.2
First post here. While I have 15+ years as a support tech, network admin, etc. in the Windows world, I am a relative noob here, so bear with me if I miss something obvious or use incorrect terminology.
I have successfully installed Zenwalk 6.4 (slackware 2.6.3 kernel) on an ancient PIII, and can access the network perfectly via a PCMCIA card (Linksys WPC55AG.) using the ATH5K driver.
However, when I dual boot into Zenwalk 7.2 (slackware 3.48 kernel), I get nothing. LSMOD doesn't even show PCMCIA_CORE running. I have checked that /etc/rc.d/rc.pcmcia is bootable, and have even manually started it, but I get no response to any card inserted in the slots. No notification from the OS, no lights on the card.
I would be happy to provide more info, I just don't know what is relevent. :-)
Any assistance would be appreciated.
