SubjectRe: Re: switching to interrupt contex when no interrupts
Date
Hello,

I used

asm volatile ("int 41");

in my code.
My card's irq number is 9.
I get the error message.

Error: suffix or operabds invalid for 'in'

This is the case, if I change the 41 to 0x29 or 29h.

Where can I get some documentation on using asm?


Warm Regards
Arun

Uh, make that "x"-32, i.e. "int 34" give irq 2.
