Subject: [gentoo-user] dwl G650+ causes a hard lockup on insertion

1 Anyone have a clue: I have a d-link dwl-G650+ pcmcia wireless card that
2 causes a hard crash whenever it is inserted into a dell i8200 laptop. I
3 last emailed about this many months back, and a number of others had a
4 similar problem but no fixes. I am hoping that by now someone will have
5 a fix or I might as well ebay the card and see if something else will
6 work.
8 The error is:
9 CPU: Machine Check Exception: 000000000000004
10 Bank0: a200000084010400
11 Kernel Panic - not syncing: CPU context corrupt
13 If I dont install the pcmcia modules I can insert the card.
14 yenta_socket appears to be the culprit as the crash occurs when this
15 module loads. On rare occasions, I can insert (and use) the card, but
16 the next time - crash!
18 This has happened since I bought the card just after I started using the
19 early 2.6 kernels, and is occurring with gentoo-sources-2.6.12-r6.
21 An old hermes card works fine, so I know there is no hardware problem.
