Conflict between network driver and PCMCIA driver
I use an external hard drive connected via a USB port on a PCMCIA card (I have a Thinkpad T21). Problem:
(1) If the PCMCIA card is plugged in at boot time, my LAN doesn't work, but my external hard drive does work.
(2) If I plug the PCMCIA card in after booting, both my LAN and my external hard drive work.
"lsmod" shows that when the PCMCIA card is plugged in at boot, the e100 module doesn't load.
The modules apparently associated with the PCMCIA card are yenta_socket, eth1394 and och1394 (the PCMCIA card has two USB ports and one firewire port).
Does anyone know how I can resolve this conflict.
I'm running Vector Linux 4.3 and am posting here 'cause my posts in the VL forum didn't get any bites (well, I got one, but the tip didn't do the trick).
