PCMCIA Problem


Right, sorry to those who recongise this problem from previous threads.

Right here goes.
Distro: redhat 9

1) in /boot/grub/menu.lst i have to add nousb to the /vmlinuz etc

If i dont do this, when it starts to load the pcmcia (starting pcmcia it just locks up the system.

2) Now my pcmcia comes up with:

starting pcmcia Yenta 0A98 pci IRQ 5
30000827

OK

I know this is a problem of some sort, so how do you sort this out. The pcmcia controller is O2micro oz6912/71160 smartcardbus according to windows.....

I know i can get pcmcia-cs, but i have followed the instructions to the letter, and it seems to do nothing to the box i have redhat on.

I read somewhere that you have to disable usb in order to get pcmcia to work in rh9.

Regarding #2, does it ever start? If it starts and works, why worry about what its called?

Right, I have to disable usb, so I did this by placing nousb in the /boot/grub/menu.lst file

then pcmcia boots without hanging, but produces the yenta thinggy

But does it work? In both slackware and gentoo, yenta is loaded to run my pcmcia.
