Gentoo Install PCMCIA Xircom 2 Card Issues


I have an old Toshiba Satellite 305CDS with a Xircom2 Credit Card PCMCIA card, and it's not detected by default.

When I go to modprobe the xirc2ps_cs, it gives me this string of errors:

/lib/modules/2.6.4-wolk-2.3/pcmcia/xirc2ps_cs.o: /lib/modules/pcmcia/xirc2ps_cs.o: unresolved symbol register_pccard_driver_R1c442d6c
/lib/modules/2.6.4-wolk-2.3/pcmcia/xirc2ps_cs.o: /lib/modules/pcmcia/xirc2ps_cs.o: unresolved symbol CardServices_Re4eef0a4
/lib/modules/2.6.4-wolk-2.3/pcmcia/xirc2ps_cs.o: insmod /lib/modules/pcmcia/xirc2ps_cs.o: failed
/lib/modules/2.6.4-wolk-2.3/pcmcia/xirc2ps_cs.o: insmod xirc2ps_cs failed

These seemed pretty cryptic to me. Is there any way to get this thing detected so I can finish this installation?

I hope someone can answer this, I've never used Gentoo on a laptop before, and I'm especially unfamiliar with PCMCIA cards.

Nevermind, I got it. I had to restart and use 'gentoo-nofb dopcmcia'

I feel like an idiot. But glad I got it working.
