    etch xircom support


    I recently upgraded from sarge to etch and my Xircom PCMCIA card is not recognized - ifconfig doesn't see it, nor do the status lights glow/blink. Has anyone else experienced this problem? I've even manually loaded the driver (insmod [kernel src path]/drivers/net/pcmcia/xirc2ps_cs.ko) with no luck.

    Any insight or suggestions would be appreciated.

    Have you confirmed that your PCMCIA socket is working at all?

    Usually the kernel module is yenta_socket - try the following to see if it is loaded
    Code:
    lsmod |grep -ir yenta
    If you don't get anything back from running that it is most likely not loaded so you can try to load it
    Code:
    su - 
    modprobe yenta_socket

    Thanks for hanging in here with me bigtom
    Code:
    $ lsmod | grep -ir yenta
    yenta_socket     24460 2
    rsrc_nonstatic   11840 1 yenta_socket
    pcmcia_core     36852 3 pcmcia,yenta_socket,rxrc_nonstatic
    $ modprobe yenta_socket
    $
    It appears that yenta's in there okay...
