PCMCIA-Card (XIRCOM Credit Card Ethernet 10/100) is correctly detected (checked with "cardctl ident") and the appropriate driver is loaded ("lsmod").
When using the networkwizard, there's only the option, to add a driver or EXIT, the buttons to test or configure the network are missing.
Any idea, how to go further ? (Hardware is ok, works with other distributions and Win...)

Wizzard is a no go in that area...


edit by hand, it's not that hard

/etc/pcmcia/network.opts

Then when the pcmcia subsytem loads the driver it will bring up the network..


easy hey

mmmmm If you had of looked at the file....


but here you go

Code:

# Network adapter configuration
#
# The address format is "scheme,socket,instance,hwaddr".
#
# Note: the "network address" here is NOT the same as the IP address.
# See the Networking HOWTO.  In short, the network address is the IP
# address masked by the netmask.
#
case "$ADDRESS" in
*,*,*,*)
    INFO="Sample private network setup"
    # Use this to override the interface name -- see 'man nameif'
    NAMEIF=""
    # Transceiver selection, for some cards -- see 'man ifport'
    IF_PORT=""
    # Use BOOTP (via /sbin/bootpc, or /sbin/pump)? [y/n]
    BOOTP="n"
    # Use DHCP (via /sbin/dhcpcd, /sbin/dhclient, or /sbin/pump)? [y/n]
    DHCP="n"
    # If you need to explicitly specify a hostname for DHCP requests
    DHCP_HOSTNAME=""
    # Host's IP address, netmask, network address, broadcast address
    IPADDR=""
    NETMASK="255.255.255.0"
    NETWORK="10.0.1.0"
    BROADCAST="10.0.1.255"
    # Gateway address for static routing
    GATEWAY="10.0.1.1"
    # Things to add to /etc/resolv.conf for this interface
    DOMAIN=""
    SEARCH=""
    DNS_1=""
    DNS_2=""
    DNS_3=""
    # NFS mounts, should be listed in /etc/fstab
    MOUNTS=""
    # If you need to override the interface's MTU...
    MTU=""
    # For IPX interfaces, the frame type and network number
    IPX_FRAME=""
    IPX_NETNUM=""
    # Extra stuff to do after setting up the interface
    start_fn () { return; }
    # Extra stuff to do before shutting down the interface
    stop_fn () { return; }
    # Card eject policy options
    NO_CHECK=n
    NO_FUSER=n
    ;;
esac


change this line to as follows

Code:
   
# Use DHCP (via /sbin/dhcpcd, /sbin/dhclient, or /sbin/pump)? [y/n]
    DHCP="y"


And that's all you need to do

That's what I've already done, before I asked the question. But this seems to have no effect; after rebooting there was no device eth0 (checking with ifconfig eth0). I'll try it once again, maybe put some "debug"-info into network.opts, to see, if this file is used by another at all.
