Re: Xircom CardBus Ethernet II (32 Bits) 10/100

I have a Xircom CardBus on my job laptop, and faced the following problem : when I inserted the NIC card, the system locked up. The only solution I found was to update the kernel to a 2.4.19 and use the brand new driver xircom_cb. I'm not very used to Slackware, so I can only tell you you'll probably need to update modutils too.

Hope this helps,
Thomas Girard

thanks to reply my message, Iam really need help with it.

My TOSHIBA Tecra 8000 bios seetings are:
Pointing Devices = Auto-Selected
Device Config = All Devices
PC Card: Auto-Selected
NOTE: Iam change 'PC Card' seetings to "CardBus/16-bit" and "PCIC Compatible"
but don't works too (system lock up).

When i start my slackware system (after log in) i make,
# cd /etc/rc.d
# ./rc.pcmcia start (i listen two beeps here).
# ifconfig eth0 up <== here my system lock up, need reset my notebook.

[NOTE]: Iam sending one copy of my rc.pcmcia script, 'lspci -v' output (after
and before rc.pcmcia start), 'cardctl status' output, 'cardctl config' output,
lsmod output (after and before rc.pcmcia start), messages and syslog and
/etc/pcmcia/config.opts file.

Thanks to all help, Iam really need it.

Hi folks,
Iam got one Toshiba Tecra 8000 with built-in modem (works fine) + Xircom
CardBus Ethernet II (32 Bits - 10/100). Iam running one Slackware 8.1


Kernel 2.4.18 with PCMCIA support but when i start my PCMCIA card my


has freeze.
Like it: ./rc.pcmcia start (i listen two beeps)
ifconfig eth0 up (system freeze, need reboot).
How I can solve it?

Among other things, check your BIOS settings.  Is the PCMCIA option set


recognise 32bit cardbus cards as well as 16bit PCMCIA cards?

Is the kernel module loaded before you do ifconfig?
What does /var/log/syslog say?
