Re: openbsd 3.3 + PCMCIA eth. card. "not configured..."



I believe the "not configured" is the killer, and means that kernel
doesn't recognise it or know which driver to use.

Check in the kernel config file for if that driver needs to be
specifically enabled.

I'm guessing you are using unmodified GENERIC - always say so in
later posts, and include a FULL dmesg, as that can indicate that
something else is clashing.

Hi,

I have a pentium laptop (Compaq armarda 4120T) with a Dayna Communicard
ethernet adaptor (pcmcia - ne2000 based card). I am in the process of
installing OpenBSD 3.3 on it. According to the i386 installation doc,
this card is supported in the generic kernel on boot disk A. The kernel
output for the PCMCIA system is as follows . . .

.
.
.
pcmcia0 at pcic0 controller 0 socket 0
'Dayna Communications, Inc., Communicard E, " (manufacturer 0x9401,
product 0x2400) at pcmcia0 function 0 not configured pcmcia1 at pcic0
controller 0 socket 1
pcic0: irq 3, polling enabled
.
.
.

Maybe there is a really simple solution to this . . but how can I get
the card recognised as an ethernet device ? I am not sure how to
actually 'configure' the card under openbsd ? I tried the exact same
card on another old laptop and got exactly the same err. message.

Thanks!

- Steven.
