Description dave 1999-05-18 02:23:17 UTC
Hi.  Installing 6.0 fails to detect my 3c589 PCMCIA ethernet
card during install.

It initializes the card, and the green light on the network
connector turns green, but prints:

insmod /tmp/pcmcia/lib/modules/preferred/3c589_cs.o
RequestIRQ: Resource already in use
get dev info on socket 1 failed: Resource temporarily

I've tried configuring the card services for both CardBus
and PCIC, both of which failed.  The laptop has the latest
BIOS version.

We've seen this one before on some inhouse machines.

The Tecra 780DVD seems to have a little difficulty parting with
already-used interrupts. Make sure /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia PCIC_OPTS
has "pci_csc=1", and that you are _not_ excluding IRQ 3 in
/etc/pcmcia/config.opts. Alternately, it is okay to define an
irq_list in PCIC_OPTS.

The reason seems to be that the revision of the PCMCIA chipset is
slightly incompatible with earlier versions, and is thus slightly
incompatible with pcmcia_cs. The 780 uses the ToPIC 97, but it seems
to differ from the one in the 750. You're lucky, though: the Tecra
7000's PCMCIA doesn't work for me at all.
