When I insert my Globalsat BC-307 card, lsmod reports hidp, rfcomm, l2cap, and bluez modules loaded and in use. Serial_cs also loads, but is not used. So the card is powered, and the light comes on. After a little bit it blinks showing it has acquired a fix.

cardctl ident says:

Socket 0:
product info: "CF CARD", "GENERIC", "",""
manfid: 0x0279, 0x950b
function: 2 (serial)

This card was detecting as a "Dell Truemobile 300 Bluetooth CF Card". So I went to /etc/pcmcia/bluetooth.conf and commented out the entries for that card. I also added the following to /etc/pcmcia/config

card "Globalsat BC-307 GPS"
version "CF CARD", "GENERIC", "", ""
manfid 0x0279, 0x950b
bind "serial_cs"

I restart cardmgr and insert the card, and it shows "New card: Globalsat BC-307 GPS" in the taskbar, but still loads the bluetooth drivers instead of the serial_cs driver (although it loads the serial_cs, it does not use it).

So gpsd -p /dev/ttyS3 -s 4800 and telnet localhost 2947 does not show any output.

Any ideas on what I am doing wrong?

EDIT: In case you didn't notice sig and title, this ia for C1000 running Cacko 1.23

EDIT 2: For solution, see post # 4.

presumably without the card, "lsmod" indicates the bluetooth driver isn't loaded - if it is, can you rmmod it?

can you check the hotplug stuff, not just the /etc/pcmcia options etc, to see if there's an association with a bluetooth card?
