Hi there,

i just installed the new Angstrom x11 Image on my SimPad SLC. Works nice.
But i can't find a way to get my Wlan Card up and running. The card works, I used it under familiar before.

If I click on "PC/CF Cards" under Settings, I get an error message "PCMCIA initialisation failed No PCMCIA driver in '/proc/devices'"
If i open the "Root shell" and type in "pccardctl ident" it finds the card at Socket 0 and knows it's a function 6 (network) card.

What am I missing here? Can someone point me to a manual somewhere, that explains how to get the pcmcia card running under angstrom?

Thanks
Johannes

Are the corresponding modules loaded (hostap, hermes or whatever is fitting your card) or installed ? I guess not.

A) The modules are not installed. If this is the case you will have to look in the Simpad feeds for the modules and manually install them.
cool.gif The modules are installed but not loaded, in this case you can use modprobe manuall to check whether something changes when loading the modules.

It all dependes on the type of your card so it would be a good idea to have more details.
