I've a VAIO laptop, and the PCMCIA CDROM don't run. I don't know which otpions I must enable in the kernel (I've just enabled CONFIG_PCMCIA, CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDECS and CONFIG_BLK_DEV_IDECD). When I insert the card, it gives me a high beep then a low beep.

I found the following lines in my system log :
Aug 19 10:09:34 Julien cardmgr[3181]: executing: 'modprobe -r ide-cs'
Aug 19 10:09:40 Julien cardmgr[3181]: socket 0: Ninja ATA
Aug 19 10:09:40 Julien cardmgr[3181]: executing: 'modprobe ide-cs'
Aug 19 10:09:40 Julien kernel: ide-cs: GetNextTuple: No more items
Aug 19 10:09:41 Julien cardmgr[3181]: get dev info on socket 0 failed: Resource temporarily unavailable

The result of the command : cardctl ident
Socket 0:
product info: " ", "NinjaATA-", "V1.0", "AP00 "

The result of the command : cat /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia

The result of the command : lsmod
ide-cs 5060 0 (unused)
ds 8680 1 [ide-cs]
yenta_socket 13472 1
pcmcia_core 57216 0 [ide-cs ds yenta_socket]

My ide.opts :
# ATA/IDE drive adapter configuration
# The address format is "scheme,socket,serial_no[,part]".
# For multi-partition devices, first return list of partitions in
# $PARTS. Then, we'll get called for each partition.
case "$ADDRESS" in
#INFO="Sample IDE setup"
DO_FSTAB="y" ; DO_FSCK="y" ; DO_MOUNT="y"
# Card eject policy options

Where is the problem, please ? Should I use i82365 compatible bridge support ?

Any help would be great, Thanks !

PS : I'm sorry, I've not seen the Linux Laptop forum !
