I have installed slackware 10.0 on a toshiba satelitte s1700-200 laptop. It has two pcmcia slots and i have a trendnet tew-421pc wlan card. when i put it into the pcmcia slot nothing happens. typing "cardctl info" says theres nothing there and since this is the only pcmcia card i have i don't know if pcmcia isn't working, or if its the card (works on my friends pc). Being quite new to linux, and even newer to laptops i haven't the slightest idea about how to go about fixing this.
I noticed in /var/log/messages it says:
Databook TCIC-2 PCMCIA probe: not found
Yenta ISA IRQ mask 0x0a98, PCI irq 10
Socket status: 30000006
but thats all i can see that relates to it. (and more importantly, i dont know what it means
When i plug the card in the following appears at the end of dmesg:
cs: cb_alloc(bus 6): vendor 0x104c, evice 0x9066
PCI: Enabling device 06:00.0 (0000 -> 0002)
Can anyone tell me what this means?
