Peripherals are found, and don't work on notebook


I'm installed the Suse 9.2 version on a notebook, and can't get the peripheral devices to work. The drive is partitioned for Windows XP (eXperimental Program?) and Linux. The peripherals work fine in the XP mode, and the system boots from GRUB into either Linux or Windows.

In Linux mode, I am able open programs, create files, in short to do everything you would expect in Linux, except get the peripheral devices to work. I am able to correctly read the all devices with the hardware monitor (thank you Suse 9.2), including my Linksys 2.4Ghz wireless G notebook adapter. The peripherals that work include the USB bus, PS mouse and sound. I can't get the ethernet, the modem, the PCMCIA bus, or the serial bus to the PDA to work. I haven't tried the parallel printer connector or InfraRed bus to see if they work.

One other anomoly. When rebooting to Windows after Linux, the peripherals don't work unless the system is cold started (disconnecting the power cable and battery pack for about 30 seconds, then reconnecting before starting). I suspect that cold starting clears any Linux data stored in the peripheral registers, so Windows is forced to set up the peripheral database. I've tried cold starting Linux without successfully waking up the peripherals.

I suspect that either Suse 9.2 isn't setting up the peripheral database correctly, or my BIOS is incompatable with Linux. I had the same problems getting the peripherals to work with Redhat 9.0, although XP rebooted w/o a cold start. Note: I was able to get the peripherals to work in a 4 year old desk system with Suse and Redhat.

Any help would be appreciated.

looks like you need some modules from the kernel to me...

getting your peripherals to work may take you some time.
you need a module for your ethernet card.
You should use google to find out which module your ethernet card requires
You should try to load the module (for example, to load the 8139too module, type "lsmod 8139too")
If the module doesn't load, then your kernel is not providing the module and you'll need to customize your kernel to change that.

The modem -do you really need it? IF it is a winmodem then it will be a huge pain getting it to work.

You need to make sure that you're kernel is including support for PCMCIA bus.

I've never configured a PDA

I hope that this is a legitimate post. Your profile shows that you come from Redmond Wash. You have PDA and wirless internet, but you are bothered that your modem and parallel printer port (which ancient printers use) aren't working. Suse cannot detect and address your ethernet or pcmcia?

what notebook are you using?

Yes this is a legitamate post. Just because I live about 2 klicks from the dark empire's citadel does not mean that I work there.

Modem: My wireless connection is at work, at home I'm stuck with dialup.

I will attempt the Ismod and look for other kernal issues. The notebook I'm using is from PC Club, its a ENP34104.

From the reply, it appears that I don't have a problem with my BIOS.

what kind of modem is it? for example, on my notebook I have a Connexant winmodem...if yours is the same I can give you guidance and yes it is a pain to get it to work

I don't think that there is a problem with your bios. I see why you would need the modem.
I did a google search on your laptop and only found less than two pages of useless links.

post the result of "dmesg" if you can (this will sometimes yield specific and helpful information about your hardware).

here is what I am thinking...

things will be a bit difficult for you because there is not very much info about your computer on the net and you won't be able to find many people using linux AND using your computer.

Option 1)
Try some more different linux distributions.

most linux distributions differ in the sophistication and range of their hardware detection capabilities. Try using Mandriva and Fedora. I don't have too much experience with these types of distributions, but I had success with Mandriva once where Redhat failed me.

Option 2)
you should try getting a knoppix livecd and booting your computer up with that. If things are working from your knoppix environment, then there is a good chance that you will be able to get everything working. use the lsmod command to see what modules knoppix used. Google those modules to understand what each module is doing. Make sure to load those modules in whatever linux distribution is on your hard drive.

If neither of those things work for you and you are not a computer guru, you are probably going to be unable to fully configure everything on your notebook with linux.

but post your dmesg if you can...

modem is a: Uniwill Intell 537 (AC97 modem)
It is curious that YaST identifies components as Uniwill Corp and Windows XP IDs them as VIA Corp.

check this driver
you have to extract it from the zip file then extract it again from .tgz then there is a readme which tells how to install (very simple installation)

oh, generally Linux identifies the chipset and windows the manufacturer
