Unhappy PCMCIA problem -- help would be very much appreciated


Hi there

I downloaded puppy-2.17-nolzma-seamonkey-fulldrivers.iso and created a bootable CD. I'm running Puppy on an IBM ThinkPad 600e laptop (192 MB RAM; 400 MHz CPU). Everything boots up okay.

I'm trying to access an IBM Microdrive (512 MB) through the PCMCIA slot using a PCMCIA adapter. While I can eventually access the drive (after about 25 min), and the files that it contains, the process take a very long time - so much so that it really isn't usable.

Once Puppy has booted up, I insert the PCMCIA adapter containing the Microdrive. There are no beeps to indicate that it has been recognized and configured correctly. After about 5-10 minutes the 'PCMCIA disk [hde1]' icon appears in MUT, but it takes a long time to mount the drive. Finally after a further 5-10 minutes the drive is mounted and I can access the drive and its contents (although this takes ages too). The stages described above take similar lengths of time when I issue the equivalent commands via a terminal window at the command line.

Please find below the Dmesg output - the problem appears to be: 'hde: lost interrupt'

Any ideas what the problem is? Should I be entering any cheat codes at boot-up to aid PCMCIA access/configuration, or editing specific scripts?

I would be extremely grateful for some help/advice.

All the best

Tallis
