I know the problem (many references in various groups), but WAS IT SOLVED SOMEHOW?
To remind the trouble - trying to install FreeBSD 5.0, 5.1 and even 4.5 causes a kernel panic (#12) after detecting PCMCIA host adapter. I do not attach messages, as they are exactly the same as those on Internet (e.g. http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/query-pr.cgi?pr=47295).
* I tried with and without PCMCIA card plugged in, * I tried with and without APM * I tried with and without "PnP OS" setting * I tried tricks with PCI steering in hints * I tried blocking PCMCIA interface in hints * I gave up
I guess it has something to do with either mobile processor (kernel faults regarding memory access) or PcCard interface. It seems not to depend on chipset (problems with at least Intel and SiS chipsets).
Did anyone see any solution to this problem, or must I stick to [EMAIL PROTECTED] Linux (still smaller and faster than Windows, anyway) on my laptop?
Sorry for rolling the problem over&over, but it is frustrating me.
Best regards, Pawel Kraszewski
