I'm just migrating to Debian (Woody), from another distribution, and I
have some configuration problems, such as getting PCMCIA net card
working with a newly installed kernel image. The original kernel
(2.2.20, from Woody), works OK with the card, but when I boot the
2.4.19 kernel I get "operation not permitted" when trying to modprobe
for pcmcia modules (as root).
I have installed the precompiled kernel with the corresponding pcmcia
modules package, as they are provided on Debian's site. I wonder if
someone could help me with some hints.
P.S. Oh yes, the machine is a Dell Latitude CPx500H, and the card a
Linksys Eth 10/100 (I am sure it's supported).
