I am trying out the 2.6 kernel. I managed to get USB to work from advice in previous
postings (manually loading the modules), but I can't get my wireless Orinoco card to work.
PCMCIA is up and running and yenta_socket is loaded, but when I plug the card in, no
lights come on. /var/log/messages indicates that cardmgr thinks it's a memory card, and
it tries to load the relevant modules for that which of course fails. This same routine happens
whether or not I first "modprobe orinoco_cs". It happened both when I tried compling 2.6.0 from source, and when I installed the kernel-2.6.1-1.131 RPM.
I seem to remember something about PCMCIA thinking the card is a memory card from way way back, but I haven't seen this in ages so I don't know what to do. Anybody got an Orinoco card working under Fedora Core 1 and kernel 2.6?
The main reason I really want 2.6 is so that my ACPI laptop will finally suspend. So far,
*that* seems to work, so if I could just get the wireless card working I'd be home free.
(The built-in Ethernet works fine so networking is properly configured).
