ciao a tutti, vi espongo questo problema:

ho inserito in /etc/pcmcia/config le seguenti righe:
card "Option Wireless Technology GSM/GPRS GlobeTrotter"
#Use Manufacturing ID to match all GlobeTrotter variants
manfid 0x0013, 0x0000
cis "cis/GLOBETROTTER.dat"
bind "serial_cs"

il file cis/GLOBETROTTER.dat in in /etc/pcmcia/cis

dopo ho eseguito da console: killall cardmgr poi fatto ripartire mi risponde:

cardmgr(2320): modpath = /lib/modules/2.4.21-243-default
cardmgr(2320): modsubdir = pcmcia
cardmgr(2320): error in file 'confif? line 22 : unknown device ' serial_cs'

questa è il sito http://www.peck.org.uk/p/Projects/GlobeTrotter/globetrotter.html

grazie per i suggerimenti


If you want to modularize a driver that is needed for a PCMCIA device, you must modify /etc/pcmcia/config to specify what modules need to be loaded for what card types. For example, if the serial driver is modularized, then the serial device definition should be:

device "serial_cs"
  class "serial" module "misc/serial", "serial_cs"

This package includes an X-based card status utility called cardinfo. This utility is based on a freely distributed user interface toolkit called the XForms Library. This library is available as a separate package with most Linux distributions. If you would like to build cardinfo, you should install XForms and all the normal X header files and libraries before configuring the PCMCIA package.


For unknown modem cards put the modified output of cardctl ident into /etc/pcmcia/config.opts accordingly and bind the serial_cs module to it. Example (from the PCMCIA-CS package):

card "Compaq 28.8K Modem"
  version "COMPAQ", "PCMCIA 28800 FAX/DATA MODEM"
  bind "serial_cs"

With some cards you may encounter some glitches (e.g. a network card not offering the full possible speed), but this should not be a problem in most cases.

For all unknown cards you may try to bind each available driver into /etc/pcmcia/config.opts step by step. Remember this is Linux: You don't have to restart your machine after each step! Just restart the PCMCIA-CS service, for instance: /etc/init.d/pcmcia restart (the actual command depends on your distribution).
