boot floppy with 3c589 - can't load - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

    Default boot floppy with 3c589 - can't load

    I have been trying for a few days now to setup an old Compaq
    Armada 1120T as a diskless workstation. However I can't get
    it to find the 3c589 PCMCIA card. I've tried compiling it
    as part of the kernel but had not success. So I'm now
    trying using an initrd with the modules being loaded from
    there.

    Here is the result of the initrd's /linuxrc script as it
    tries to load the 3c586_cs module. The linuxrc script
    follows for reference.

    Red Hat nash version 3.5.7 starting
    mount /proc
    Loading 3c589 module...
    Using /lib/modules/2.4.22-openmosix-r2/pcmcia/pcmcia_core.o
    Linux Kernel Card Services 3.1.22
    options: [pci] [cardbus]
    Using /lib/modules/2.4.22-openmosix-r2/pcmcia/ds.o
    ds: no socket drivers loaded!
    insmod: init_moduleL dsL Operation not permitted
    Using /lib/modules/2.4.22-openmosix-r2/pcmcia/3c589_cs.o
    insmod: unresolved symbol register_pccard_driver_R1c442d6c
    insmod: unresolved symbol unregister_pccard_driver_Rdb348cd2
    modprobe: failed to load module 3c589_cs
    ERROR: /bin/modprobe exited abnormally!
    Module Size Used by
    pcmcia_core 39808 0
    ERROR: /bin/lsmod exited abnormally!
    Kernel panic: Attempted to kill init!

    /linuxrc
    #!/bin/nash
    echo mount /proc
    mount -t proc /proc /proc
    echo Loading 3c589 module...
    modprobe 3c589_cs irq_list=3
    lsmod

    I haven't added more to /linuxrc, to mount / over nfs, as
    I need to get the 3c589 working before I fill the screen
    with even more error messages.

    Note that I have busybox installed in the initrd and it is
    providing the mount, lsmod, insmod and modprobe
    functionality.

    The 3Com card does work and is found successfully by
    tomsrtbt.

    Any advice?

    I dont know which which socket type you armada has but you need to load
    appropriate socket driver. In Armada i had (e700) i think it was
    yenta_socket.

    You might be able to try all three (AFAIK) of them and see which one
    works, i.e:
    modprobe i82092
    modprobe i82365
    modprobe yenta_socket

    or see what driver tomsrtbt uses
    or check in /proc/pci

    tomsrtbt has i82365 loaded. It is loading the 3c589_cs module now.

    Thanks for the pointer. I was chasing my tail on that.

    The rest should be easy now.
