PCMCIA-PCI bridge and/or Proxim Harmony 802.11b card


Hi all!

Well, I encountered a strange problem.
I had this Proxim Harmony Wireless Lan card up & running in my LFS Linux. Then I took it out and placed the card into a machine with Fedora Core 1.
This card is somewhat strange: it looks like a normal pci card, but it is a pci-to-pcmcia bridge with a wireless card included.
And, I HAD it running in my Linux from Scratch, using the pcmcia-cs drivers from sourceforge.net version 3.2.5.
Now to the problem. The card doesn't work in Fedora Core 1.
lspci finds the card:

00:08.0 PCMCIA bridge: Cirrus Logic CL 6729 (rev 07)

but for example kudzu, the configuration tool, doesn't find it on startup. So good so far, I have overtaken the configuration from my LFS - look here:

/etc/sysconfig/pcmcia:

PCMCIA=yes
PCIC=i82365
PCIC_OPTS="irq_mode=1"
CORE_OPTS=
CARDMGR_OPTS=

It had worked with these. Oh, and my kernel was a 2.4.22 in LFS and is now a 2.4.22-2194 (fully updated FC1).

now here it comes, when I try to do

/etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia restart

/etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia restart
Shutting down PCMCIA services:.
Starting PCMCIA services:/lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2194.nptl/kernel/drivers/pcmcia/i82365.o: init_module: No such device

/lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2194.nptl/kernel/drivers/pcmcia/ds.o: insmod ds failed
cardmgr.


See? "No such device" and "Operation not permitted" - I am root, so I am permitted to do any operation.

I tried to check out what cardctl knows - look here:

cardctl status
no pcmcia driver in /proc/devices

cardctl ident
no pcmcia driver in /proc/devices

lsmod gives this:

lsmod
Module Size Used by Not tainted
pcmcia_core 56256 0



So, for me this looks like the kernel didn't find the card - but lspci shows the card! Does anybody have an idea, or did anybody solve this problem?
I would be really really happy about any advice/hint you can give me.
Thanks for reading this!
