PCMCIA modem now works

June 22, 2008 — BarryK

I got the Dynacom Data/Fax PCMCIA modem to work in the latest Puppy. What did was look at the udev rules in the original 'pcmciautils' package, that is, file /etc/udev/rules.d/60-pcmcia.rules.
I implemented those rules in my light-weight udev replacement 'pup_event'. There is still a complaint in dmesg though, in fact two complaints:

pccard: PCMCIA card inserted into slot 0
cs: memory probe 0xd0000000-0xd00fffff: excluding 0xd0000000-0xd001ffff
pcmcia: registering new device pcmcia0.0
pcmcia: CIS filename is too long [GLOBETROTTER.cis]
pcmcia: CIS filename is too long [GLOBETROTTER.cis]
0.0: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 3) is a 16550A
