14.3.22. Configure Linux for PCMCIA Cards using the Card Services package

The following kernel configuration options are required to support miscellaneous PCMCIA card types with Linux and the PCMCIA CS package:

  1. PCMCIA IDE cards (CompactFlash and true-IDE)
    General setup -> Support for hot-pluggable devices (enable: Y) -> PCMCIA/CardBus support -> PCMCIA/CardBus support (enable: M) -> MPC8XX PCMCIA host bridge support (select)
  2. PCMCIA Modem Cards
  3. PCMCIA Network Cards
  4. PCMCIA WLAN Cards

Build and install modules in target root filesystem, shared over NFS:

bash$ make modules modules_install INSTALL_MOD_PATH=/opt/eldk/ppc_8xx

Adjust PCMCIA configuration file (/opt/eldk/ppc_8xx/etc/sysconfig/pcmcia):


Start PCMCIA Card Services:

bash-2.05# sh /etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia start
