Hi! I am trying to get FreeBSD 5.0 to run on my IBM Thinkpad (Model 2609 aka 240X).
I have a couple of issues. When I run a GENERIC kernel (or one based on it) there is no /dev/card0 in my namespace. dmesg reports: cbb0: <TI1211 PCI-CardBus Bridge> irq 11 at device 10.0 on pci0 cardbus0: <CardBus bus> on cbb0 pccard0: < 16-bit PCCard bus> on cbb0 During boot up I see: Setup PC-CARD:pccardc: /dev/card0: no such device When I check /dev, there is indeed no /dev/card0 device. If I plug my ethernet card in various statistics etc print out to say what kind of card it is etc. Unfortunately, the only card I have is currently unsupported (D-Link DFE-680TXD - a DEC "Tulip" clone), so I can't tell whether it should be available to the system or not. When I boot a kernel based on OLDCARD, /dev/card0 gets created, but when I plug in the card, I get the following message: pcic0: Card Type 32 bit CardBus is unsupported. None of Windoze, RH Linux9.0 , or OpenBSD 3.0 have any problems with the PC's slot or the D-Link card. While I don't necessarily expect FreeBSD to recognise the D-Link card, I'm surprised that the GENERIC kernel finds the device, but the /dev/card0 file is not being created. Questions: 1. Should I see a /dev/card0 when the GENERIC kernel is booted? 2. Are there any known issues with this system? My second issue is that XWindows doesn't seem to run. My experience has always been that this is a pig to get going on most systems, and that notebooks are particularly hard. I haven't really looked to hard at this yet, the networking is more important to me right now. In /etc/X11/XF86Config file I have: HorizSync 31.5 - 35.1 VertRefresh 50-70 Section "Device" Identifier "Silicon Motion Lynx Family" Drive "siliconmotion" #VideoRam 2048 EndSection The notebook has a 800x600 LCD screen and a SMI Lynx EM+ chipset with 2Mb of RAM. The chipset apparently is supported by X Free. Once again, OpenBSD 3.0 and RHL 9.0 actually manage to run X semi successfully. (Actually, it works fine with RHL 9.0). OpenBSD will only run it in 640x480 mode. Questions: 1. Has anyone managed to get X running on one of these ThinkPads? If you have, what does your XF86Config file look like?
