    Smile IBM T21 cannot boot, MINIPCI CARD PROBLEMS.


    My notebook is ibm t21-2647-td2, os is slackware 12.2, boot loader is lilo, NIC is Xircom MPCI3A56G-100P.

    The os can boot successfully only if i remove the minipci card, otherwise it will be stuck at this point where the following message displayed:

    ACPI:PCI Interrupt link[LNKC] enabled at IRQ 11
    serial 0000:00:03.1: PCI INTA->Link [LNKCI] GSI 11(level, low)->IRQ11

    it still doesn't work if i add additional options "acpi=off noacpi" sth. what a big headache! how can i fix it? compile the kernel? any of your help will be appreciated.

    usually when something like this happens, it means
    mini-PCI card is bad: have you another to try?
