Re: testing PCMCIA setup under FC5, for Sierra Aircard555 CMDA modem (url's updated)



Dear Dominik,

I had patched as follwing in serial_cs.c :
        PCMCIA_DEVICE_CIS_MANF_CARD(0x0192, 0xa555, "SW_555_SER.cis"),
 /* Sierra Aircard 555 CDMA 1xrtt Modem -- pr
e update */
        PCMCIA_DEVICE_CIS_MANF_CARD(0x013f, 0xa555, "SW_555_SER.cis"),
 /* Sierra Aircard 555 CDMA 1xrtt Modem -- po
st update */

The result now is that I see the pcccard info as below:
PRODID_1="Sierra Wireless"
PRODID_2="AirCard 555"
PRODID_3="A555"
PRODID_4="Rev 1"
MANFID=0192,a555
FUNCID=6

This however does not help, and I then have to try executing
pcmcia-socket-startup , that wont help too. So the only help finally
to have this modem accessible is the following command sequence:
cat /lib/firmware/SW_555_SER.cis > /sys/class/pcmcia_socket/pcmcia_socket0/cis
/sbin/pcmcia-socket-startup

I'll be very much thankful for any further followup to have this
solved for a true PnP setup.

Many Thanks,
Kevin
