Thread: Boot hangs at PCMCIA detection

    Boot hangs at PCMCIA detection

    Here's hoping someone is around to perhaps help me out...

    I have installed Slack 10 on my laptop, an eMachines M6809.

    Upon pcmcia probe, the boot process entirely stops. My problem may be similar to this one, but I've tried disabling the port range specified in that thread to no avail.

    I would greatly appreciate any information that could be of assistance.

    first start your slackbox with nopcmcia and then edit (correct) /etc/pcmcia/*

    i had a similar problem with my laptop (Toshiba), i don't remeber the exact changes on the main config file, but the problems was on the memory allocation sets and on the drivers.

    sorry for my BadEnglish

    Use the Slackware cd to boot into tun level 1, mount the partition and make /etc/rc.d/rc.pcmscia non-executable.
    Let me know if you need detailed information.
    My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive.
