SubjectPCMCIA: 3CCFE575CT initialization probem under 2.4.0-test7


I am using a 3CCFE575CT with a Compaq Armada under the kernel 2.4.0-test7
and pcmcia-3.1.19. I am running Mandrake 7.0. The problem concerns the
cardmgr and/or the 3c59x kernel module. When the pcmcia service starts, it
initializes the cardmgr, reads the sockets, installs the proper kernel
modules and runs the network configuration scripts if a network card is
found. I have modified the /etc/pcmcia/config by replacing all the 3c575_cb
strings by the 3c59x string. Then, the cardmgr was able to load the 3c59x
module instead of the 3c575_cb module for my 3CCFE575CT. When the network
scripts are run, I can read the following from the /var/log/messages and my
network configuration is not executed:

cardmgr[386]: executing: './network start 3c575_cb'
cardmgr[386]: + usage: ifup <device name>
cardmgr[386]: start cmd exited with status 1

Should not I read "./network start eth0" instead of "./network start
3c575_cb" ? It seems the kernel module is not giving the proper information
to the cardmgr or the cardmgr is not reading the good one from the 3c59x
kernel module. I have modified some code inside the 3c59x.c module. I have
changed "3c575_cb" to "eth0" in the next structure and I got the card to

static struct pci_driver vortex_driver = {
name: "3c575_cb",

But, I guess this change is not good. It will only work for eth0... Please,
can you help me with that one ? BTW, the 3CCE589ET is working fine.

Many thanks for your support,
