How To Clear Busy Cf Port?
« on: February 23, 2006, 10:38:36 pm »
Cacko on C1000 I cannot use my CF port with my SanDisk Wifi/Memory Card
because it shows as busy.

How do I clear the port, please?

Thanks!  doc

UPDATE 24Feb06

I read an old thread but am still stuck on my C1000.

I cannot eject my CF card "CF/PCMCIA Card Eject Failed!"

I have tried cardctl suspend and cardctl suspend 0 and cardctl resume and cardctl resume 0
and most cause errors and others occasionally are accepted but I still cannot access my CF
card as it is said to be busy!

Help, please?  Thanks!  doc

Yes.

/etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia restart
[div align=\"right\"][a href=\"index.php?act=findpost&pid=115973\"][{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a][/div]

This has to be done from superuser (su then enter password at the prompt) because
if one does not one receives errors re. lack of permission.
{I add that in case someone really new to Linux reads this.}

When I enter: "/etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia restart" I get:

cardmgr[15280]: open_sock(socket 0) failed: Device or resource busy.

??  Thanks!  doc

EDIT -- ***SOLVED***

Just noticed that when I try an Eject on my card slots it shows the SanDisk
card still in the CF slot even though it is not.

When I run Eject on the SanDisk it fails.

I uninstalled the SanDisk WiFi/Memory app.

I ran Restart instead of using the Power Off the Power On button.

I then re-installed the SanDisk app.

Tried to activate the SanDisk app as User and permission was denied.

Activated the SanDisk app as SU.  OK.  One odd message "umount: /mnt/cf/: Invalid argument"

Opened Opera and clicked Connect.  Worked!
