Question Boot problems


Hi, guys -- big newbie. I've run into some problems when booting. I just installed Slackware 9.0 on a Dell Latitude C800 laptop. Installation went fairly smoothly (I think), but my system is freezing on boot. Same problem wether I boot from LILO or bootdisk:

cardmgr[53]: watching 2 sockets
cs: IO port probe 0x0c00-0x0cff: clean.
cs: IO port probe 0x0800-0x08ff:

and freezes. This is my first Linux experience (I did have some experience with Unix, maybe 10 years ago), so I'm really not sure what this means. I figured from the "IO" that it might have to do with one of my IO devices, so tried booting with and without my USB mouse and my PCMCIA 802.11 wireless card. Same thing happens either way. I can succesfully boot the kernel from the install CD, so I do have some access to my system, but I don't know where to begin looking. Thanks for any help!

I believe cs is Card Services, i.e. your PCMCIA controller. Try booting without any cards installed in the PCMCIA slots.

If all else fails, refer to http://www.linux-on-laptops.com/, because you're not the first person ever to install Linux on a Latitude C800, and someone has probably encountered this problem before.

Hi, bentz. Thanks for the reply. It won't boot with or without the PCMCIA cards in there, but thank you for the link. I'll check it out.

The link did it. Turns out I had to remove execute permissions on rc.pcmcia so that it would boot without executing it, then download the newest PCMCIA card service from http://pcmcia-cs.sourceforge.net/. Haven't gotten it all done yet, but hopefully this will work. Thanks for your help!
