In http://www.gubbe.ch/linux/pb2400-pcmcia.php you say
"modify /etc/pcmcia.conf". I don't have a pcmcia.conf file. Should
I create one and add the values you recommend?
Well, I managed to screw up both my woody and my potato installation last night.
On woody, getty kept spawning every five minutes, so I commented out every
occurence of getty in the rc.init file. Doh! I mis-read tty[1-6] for ttys[1-6], so I thought
I was commented out something to the (pseudo-)? serial ports. And I don't have a
console to attach.
For potato, I try to do a minimal install... I don't select anything from tasksel until
after I reboot. Then I run tasksel -s. But the system keeps freezing when it comes
to TeX stuff. Last night, it was on "***purging old tex files***". Previously, it had
been installation of some tetex docs. I'll just leave this one at the scratching-head stage.
I also discovered another reason why I don't like using potato with my computer. I get
hundreds of "unresolved symbols" regarding pcmcia.
I get off of work early today, so I'll fiddle around and try to get a functioning woody again.
Regarding memory allocation, would it hurt if I included both 0x80000000-0x80ffffff and
0x90000000-0x90ffffff ranges in my config.opts?
Oh, and I figured out what /dev/ttyS00 was. It is, in fact, a serial port. just not my
internal modem or my pcmcia modem. It's the modem/printer port.
Tune in tomorrow... same deb time, same deb channel.
