I have just installed slackware 10 and tried to get my netgear wg511 card working. I got the latest 2.6 kernel from kernel.org and compiled it with yenta_socket and prism54 as modules.
When i reboot I get the following:
Starting pcmcia services
cardmgr: no sockets found!
Activating hardware detection: /etc/rc.d/rc.hotplug start
The machine then locks up.
If I put the yenta in as built in the machine starts up and cardmgr claims to be watching 2 sockets. A lsmod shows that the prism54 and firware_class modules are installed but the firware_class isn't used by anything. I have no lights on the card.
The message in dmesg is:
Loading prism54 driver, version 1.2
PCI: Enabling device 0000:06:00.0 (0000 -> 0002)
ACPI: PCI interupt 0000:06:00.0[A]: no GSI
eth0: could not install IRQ handler
prism54: probe of 0000:06:00.0 failed with error -5
I've found loads of references to prism54.org but the site is down so was hoping someone here could help.
The machine is a Tosh tecra 8100 laptop.
I have the pcmcia-cs package installed.
I have the firmware in /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware/isl3890 the file is executable but i'm not sure if that is necessary or not. The agent is in /etc/hotplug/firmware.agent and is executable.
can anyone help?
