Subject: [gentoo-user] Wireless PCMCIA card issue with 2.6.18 linux kernel
Date: Sun, 21 Jan 2007 19:49:49

Hi,

I have a Senao NL-2511CD PLUS EXT2 wireless PCMCIA card, which I am
planning to use in my desktop PC through a Ricoh RL5c475 PCI-PCMCIA
bridge. The relevant output from uname, lspci and lspcmcia is at the
end of this message. The kernel configuration file and
/etc/pcmcia/config.opts is attached.

The problem I am seeing is that the wlan0 interface is not created by
the kernel. Here is the error log in the syslog file when I remove and
insert the PCMCIA card:

Jan 21 21:32:14 bonsai pccard: card ejected from slot 0
Jan 21 21:32:17 bonsai pccard: PCMCIA card inserted into slot 0
Jan 21 21:32:17 bonsai pcmcia: registering new device pcmcia0.0
Jan 21 21:32:17 bonsai pcmcia: request for exclusive IRQ could not be fulfilled.
Jan 21 21:32:17 bonsai pcmcia: the driver needs updating to supported shared IRQ lines.
Jan 21 21:32:17 bonsai eth2: failed to initialize firmware (err = -19)
Jan 21 21:32:17 bonsai orinoco_cs: register_netdev() failed
Jan 21 21:32:17 bonsai pcmcia: request for exclusive IRQ could not be fulfilled.
Jan 21 21:32:17 bonsai pcmcia: the driver needs updating to supported shared IRQ lines.
Jan 21 21:32:17 bonsai eth2: failed to initialize firmware (err = -19)
Jan 21 21:32:17 bonsai orinoco_cs: register_netdev() failed

What could be the reason for this problem? Any hints on how to further
troubleshoot greatly appreciated...
