I have an old laptop, an HP XE3 OmniBook. Nice machine from an ergonomical point of view, and I was thinking of recycling it by installing FreeBSD.
I downloaded the ISO for 5.2.1. It starts to boot just fine, but during the kernel load it dies with the message
cbb0: Unsupported card type detected
I tried selecting Safe mode, but it freezes earlier with
A few lines above it says
cbb0: <02Micro 026933 PCI-CardBus Bridge> irq 9 at device 4.0 on pci2
Is there any way to get around this? I've seen a few messages on the subject in the archives but apparently these all involve running systems, something I don't yet have :(
Or should I try 4.10 instead?
Thanks for the clues, David
