Ok I finally got the card recognized...
bash-2.05b# cardctl status
3.3V CardBus card
function 0: [ready]
bash-2.05b# cardctl info
PRODID_1="Wireless Network CardBus PC Card"
Now heres what I get when I run the ./start_net script in the acx100/scripts dir...
verbose mode on.. for better diag.
+ echo 8
+ sleep 1
++ grep acx100_pci
+ [[ -n '' ]]
+ /sbin/insmod /lib/modules/2.4.24/kernel/drivers/net/acx100_pci.o debug=0xb firmware_dir=/lib/modules/acx100_fmwe
/lib/modules/2.4.24/kernel/drivers/net/acx100_pci.o: init_module: No such device
/lib/modules/2.4.24/kernel/drivers/net/acx100_pci.o: Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
+ [[ 1 == 0 ]]
+ echo 'Error while inserting module! Bailing...'
Error while inserting module! Bailing...
+ exit 1
and... dmesg states this....
acx100: It looks like you were coaxed into buying a wireless network card
acx100: that uses the mysterious ACX100 chip from Texas Instruments.
acx100: You should better have bought e.g. a PRISM(R) chipset based card,
acx100: since that would mean REAL vendor Linux support.
acx100: Given this info, it's plain evident that this driver is EXPERIMENTAL,
acx100: thus your mileage may vary. Visit http://acx100.sf.net for support.
acx100_init_module: TI acx100_pci.o: Ver 0.2.0pre6 Loaded
I hope thats some help...
