Hi, folks,

I was wondering if I could get some advice on a problem I'm having getting 
cardbus cards recognized by my laptop (HP zv6000) running FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE 
0. If I insert a card into the cardbus slot it the insertion is not recognized 
by the system. There is no trace that anything even occurred in dmesg. Likewise 
if I boot with a card inserted there is seemingly no recognition that the card 
is even there. And equally obviously there is no device created to configure 
(in my case an atheros based wlan card). The only trace of it is in dmesg that 
it sees the bus but does not see the card... see snip of dmesg below.
cbb0: <TI1510 PCI-CardBus Bridge> at device 4.0 on pci3
cardbus0: <CardBus bus> on cbb0
pccard0: <16-bit PCCard bus> on cbb0

My kernel is compiled with the following options...
# PCMCIA and cardbus bridge support
device????????? cbb???????????? # cardbus (yenta) bridge
device????????? pccard????????? # PC Card (16-bit) bus
device????????? cardbus???????? # CardBus (32-bit) bus
end of 
and just in case, I added the following line to /etc/rc.conf. I don't think 
this entry will help a 32 bit cardbus but I figured It wouldn't hurt since I 
could not find an equivalent for cardbus.


I would have assumed a dead slot except that it worked when booted with 
Windows. And even now I can boot from a Linux live cd and see the insertion 
event in dmesg under linux.

Snip of Linux

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
