Unhappy IBM T23 + Gentoo = No PCMCIA Working....


I can't seem to get my ORiNOCO card to even power up when I put it in my PCMCIA slot, Is there something I have to load to get the Carbbus to fire up? (Texas Instruments PCI-1420)

I can see PCMCIA start up, and state that it's watching 2 slots but nothing happens when I insert the card.

Any Ideas?
Thanks PPL!

are you using the kernel PCMCIA support, or did you "emerge pcmcia-cs" ? I use the kernel support
When the card is plugged in, does it show up in lspci?

Sorry about the dual-post, I noticed after the fact but I could not figure out how to move the topic.

Here is the output from 'lspci'
=======================================

0000:02:08.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corp. 82801CAM (ICH3) PRO/100 VE (LOM) Ethernet Controller (rev 41)
====================================

as for the Emerge or Kernel question, I did do the kernel first, as a Modual then when that did not work I tried the emerge.

With the kernel support I can see pcmcia during boot, and it starts to watch my two ports, but does not find anything.

thanks for answering,

after re-reading previous posts, you said that the in-kernel pcmcia support was a module. I'll assume that it is loaded.
The hardware does seem to be detected. What happens then when you try to do an ifconfig eth1 up. Is there an error?

Also, do you know what module the wireless card uses, or are you planning to use one of the wrapper technologies with a windows driver?

I am going to re-install the whole shabang tonight, I am not sure if I messed something up or not, but the card fires up in the live cd enviroment just fine.
I am just going to copy that kernel over.

I'll let you know,

thanks for the help.

My advice is not to use the package pcmcia-cs, use the kernel support. Also, copying the kernel from the CD will only work if all the modules are copied as well. I usually install the genkernel utility on new systems until I've had a chance to learn which modules I should include in the kernel, so that option might help you.

Thats where I went amiss with the first installation, I did a manual build and thought I had got everything I needed,
genkernel sounds like a plan,
Thanks again.
