Problem with PCMCIA and Mandrake 9.2 on startup with Belkin 5D6020 v2


The sytem crashes on startup by the step loading PCMCIA

So I changed the

#cat /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia to
PCMCIA=no
PCIC=yenta_socket


it crashes also with the command
modprobe yenata_socket

Or wenn I change in a running system in the /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia from PCMCIA=no to PCMCIA=yes and type the command
/etc/init.d/pcmcia start

I tested the pcmf502rd form atmel and the pcmf502_revd from mandrake

I maked the changes in the /etc/pcmcia/config

device "pcmf502rd" class "network" module "pcmf502rd"

< and 1000 lines later>

card "Belkin F5D6020 rev.2"
manfid 0x01bf, 0x3302
bind "pcmf502rd"


I changed also the pcmf502rd to pcmf502_revd, pcmcia-cs package is installed.


Thanks for help?
Markus

Same problem

I too have the Belkin card and no matter how I configure it, it locks up. I have followed the instructions from the House of Craig, but I still must be missing something. Hopefuly someone can help us resolve this.

Any help out there?

I worked hard on Sunday, and then I had a running version.

But I can not say why, so I reinstalled my system to and tried all the settings again but it doesnīt work.

So donīt give up, I have at the moment also a bad configuration but I be shure I find the one (ore my old one again) and I will post it then.

I works with this settings

Distribution: Mandrake 9.2
Kernel: 2.4.22.10mdk
System: Acer alpha 550LC or Aspire 12xxLC


I compiled the atmeldriver into the system from.
http://atmelwlandriver.sourceforge.net/downloads.html version 2003-09-23
But bevor you run install you had to make a link your kernel folder.
ln -s /lib/modules/2.4.22-10mdk/kernel/drivers/net/pcmcia /lib/modules/2.4.22-10mdk/pcmcia
So I used the pcmf502rd and not the 3rdparty driver pcmf502_revd.

My config
/etc/sysconfig/pcmcia

PCMCIA=yes
PCIC=yenta_socket


/etc/pcmcia/config

"I add following"
device "pcmf502rd" class "network" module "pcmf502rd"

"and at the position with the other wirelescards"

card "Belkin F5D6020 rev.2"
manfid 0x01bf, 0x3302
bind "pcmf502rd"


no changes in the module.conf
no changes in the pcmcia.opts

The system worked with this setting but now I doesnīt.
I think a other driver makes problems on a same recoure?

When you ran the make config, which options did you answer yes to?

I have noticed at one time I answered only yes to only the pcmcia questions. When I restarted PCMCIA services my systems beeped twice (did not lock up), one high pitch and one low pitch. I run iwconfig but no info one any wireless cards. Under thses conditions I could never get the card to work.

I am thinking that maybe some of the drivers that come with atmel might conflict with my system. I am going to try compiling several different ways. I will let you know what I come up with.

Thanks for the help.
Bill

I it beep, the pcmcia works and a card is dedected.
Now you have to look for the driver of the card
tell me more details about your config.
card?
post the message from [B]lspci -v[\B] only the part form the card
if you run the atmel driver take a lock at the command[B] lvnet[\B] but ist must run as root

dmesg gives you also some useful informations

I am still trying to duplicate what I once had with the high and low beeps, I will keep you posted. I think I am done for the night, I will try again tomorrow.

What version of PCMCIA are you using is it the version that came with MDK9.2?



Thanks again
Bill

I did a complete reinstall again. This time I used the driver that came with MDK9.2. When it loads PCMCIA I get on high pitched beep and it says:

cardmgr[808] Socket 0: Belkin F5D6020 rev.2

I then get another low pitched beep with the following beep:

cardmgr[808] set dev info on socket 0 failed. Resource temporarily unavailable

I run cardcrl ident it says the card is there.
I run iwconfig shows no wireless extensions.
IFconfig does not show eth1
I run lscpi -v no card information shows up there either.

I am going to try the other drivers again and will report back.

For wmartino!

I know you have now a other running card but for all the other persions how see this statment it looks like you have a wrong entry in the /etc/pcmcia/config or the wrong driver

To my problem
The sytem crashes on startup by the step loading PCMCIA
I fixed the problem



It was my soundcard with was not correct dedected so I installed the origianal driver from via an now it works.

For more infomations look at http://www.moresun.org/infos-docs/li...alpha_550.html there is my configuration.
