Hi All,

I have installed 4.0 on a armada1750 ; installation is done using the cdrom
mode ; once rebooted with a 3com i3c985D inserted, it keeps saying:

[pccard45] driver allocation failed for 3com corp (3c589D Device not

if i try  to insert a xircom 10/100 +modem, it will have the following

[pccard45]: no card in database for "" ("")

I tried to modify /etc/pccard.conf.sample, (the ppcardd runs with with a
command line including this file)and for the 3com 3c589D, i tried to change
the line config "ep0" ? to config "ep0" any but no chance!

Anyone knows how to deal with pcmcia card files config/troubleshoot?
I really don't know the exact files to configure..

Also when i type ifconfig -a i get some interfaces with the following name:
gif0 gif1 gif2 gif3 and also faith0.
I find this really weird.

Thanks in advance for any help!
