I am trying XIRCOM PCMCIA (CEM56-100 PCCARD,16bit,5V - and "RealPort RE-100") network cards, but:
cs: unable to map card memory!
cs: warning: no high memory space available!
here the full dmesg, lspci, lsmod:

I tried various kernel parameters pci=assign-busses pci=usepirqmask pnpbios=off pci=biosirq
... all to no avail.

Posted by curaga on Sep. 28 2007,12:39What, you're still using DSL 0.9??
Suggest you try the newest RC for DSL 4. With a newer kernel, it might sort everything out for you.
Posted by ^thehatsrule^ on Sep. 28 2007,14:54You could try booting with nopcmcia, then manually insert which modules you need.
@curaga: I still have lots of 1.x setups
Posted by y23 on Sep. 29 2007,04:15I tried NOPCMCIA and did modprobe pcmcia_cs but it gave a "module not found."
Can someone type a few command I can try?
Or suggest a live-distro that has older pcmcia modules for 16bit cards?
Since mine is a TI PCI1250 controller I tried the solution for "old laptop and the the TI1620 cardbus controller"
setpci -s 0:a.0 SUBORDINATE_BUS=0x0A
as described < here >.
No cigar :-(
My hunch is that the solution is partly told < here >
PUPPY 2.17 failed, too.
