One of several interesting replies: >FWIW, on my Thinkpad 600X w/ Linksys pcmcia, I had to use OLDCARD to >configure a kernel that would use the card. I may be missing the point, but >it might be worthy to note it also. Responses: It was suggested that I try ifconfig -a to see if the card was detected but not configured. It does not appear to be recognized. pccard_enabled="YES" was and is in my rc.conf, but that was a good suggestion. The card is found in dmesg, but I find a message that looks ominous: "32-bit cardbus not supported" or similar. I get the same message when I hotplug the card in. The card is a 3Com Megahertz 10/100 card, model number 3CCFE575BT I am disappointed to not see this card in /etc/defaults/pccard.conf I am running 4.8, and I suspect that this is obvious to the more knowledgable by this point. I don't quite know what to do with the suggestion that I use OLDCARD to configure a kernel. Could someone point me at some documentation? Request for Advice: If, in fact, I cannot use FreeBSD 4.8 and cardbus cards, am I better to get a 16-bit card (possibly tricky, I did some looking) or move to 5.x (which makes me, perhaps unnecessarily, nervous)? -- thanks to all, William _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
