RE: Very old laptop - need some help :)
NOTE: First read my previous posts on the 2nd page ...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The pcmcia-cs-modules package can be downloaded here ...

http://delicate-linux.net/0.1/pkg/noupda...pkg.tar.gz

Please, download it ..... burn to CD and transfer to the laptop (copy the file to your home directory to make it easier)

Once it is transferred, install the package with:
pacman -U pcmcia-cs-modules-3.2.8-1.pkg.tar.gz

If you've already loaded any modules manually, then reboot or unload them using the -r parameter ... for example : modprobe -r ds

Try these steps:
1.) switch to the original pcmcia-cs module
pcmcia-cs-enable

2.) call depmod (some warning about unresolved symbol might occur .. ignore it)
depmod -a

3.) try to load the original i82365 module (and stop here if you get errors)
modprobe i82365 fast_pci=1
modprobe ds

4.) check the dmesg and lspci output ... if the card is present, you can make the changes permanent by modifying the /etc/rc.modules to contain the following lines in the right order ....
/usr/sbin/pcmcia-cs-enable
/sbin/depmod -a
/sbin/modprobe i82365 fast_pci=1
/sbin/modprobe ds

5.) continue with the wifi driver configuration

-------------------------------------

I know this might look terrible .... but I plan to automate this hard work once we test it ....
