I had the same problem the all solution is to not check a memory 
segment defined into the /etc/pcmcia/config.opts

# Local PCMCIA Configuration File

# System resources available for PCMCIA devices

include port 0x100-0x4ff, port 0xc00-0xcff
include memory 0xc0000-0xfffff
include memory 0xa0000000-0xa0ffffff, memory 0x60000000-0x60ffffff


And the daemon start fine !!!!
