Thread: Old TPad with Panasonic PCMCIA CD-ROM [long]

  1. Old TPad with Panasonic PCMCIA CD-ROM [long]

    I cannot get a Panasonic CD-ROM to work with and old TPad 560. The same
    will work fine with Windows Me boot floppy & a DOS driver.

    I am now using Fedora Core 1, which I was able to install using NFS and
    a PCMCIA network card. I have had very similar results with other
    distros though.

    I am afraid that I am rather new to this, I have little experience
    except with systems that work when installed.

    To be on the safe side, I load the cdrom & sd_mod modules, then insert
    the card:

    I have tried perturbing the system by fiddling with the IRQ, IO & memory
    configurations in /etc/pcmcia/config.opts .

    For example with a different IRQ I see:

    >/etc/pcmcia/config.opts


    ....
    >exclude irq 3

    ....

    >/var/log/messages


    ....

    Here the machine locks up and a have to power cycle it.

    And if I force a different I/O address:

    >/etc/pcmcia/config.opts


    ....
    >exclude port 0x240-0x25f

    ....

    >/var/log/messages

    In other words the same as with the default I/O address. Now that is
    probably not too surprising, if the card only decodes 10 address lines.

    Finally, if I change the memory address used (not clear, that might be
    the PCMCIA controller memory, rather than the SCSI) then again I see:

    >/etc/pcmcia/config.opts


    ....
    >exclude memory 0xd0000-0xdffff


    >/proc/iomem

    ....
    >000c8000-000c8fff : card services

    ....

    >/var/log/messages

    Now perhaps I am just looking too deeply at this. Perhaps there is
    something mor4e basic that I need to learn before I can get an SCSI
    CD-ROM to work.

    Which way should I go now?

    TIA

  2. Re: Old TPad with Panasonic PCMCIA CD-ROM [long]

    I had a similar problem on my TP 560. I got it to work by excluding
    irq 5 in the PCMCIA configuration. (Apparently irq 5 was used by the
    internal sound system.) I hope that helps.

    Thanks, I think that you are right, but it doesn't really help.

    If I prohibit both IRQ3 and IRQ5 then it uses IRQ9. I get the same
    "qlogic_cs: no SCSI devices found" as with IRQ3, rather than the lockup
    of IRQ5.

    Ho hum!

    The pcmcia support for Red Hat/Fedora is somewhat picky, I would suggest
    that you use the current pcmcia-cs-3.2.7 package instead.

    http://pcmcia-cs.sourceforge.net/

    You will need the kernel-source RPM installed in order for this to work.

    ../Configure --force --extraver=

    If you don't to this then it will use custom as the kernel
    source tree. Use the version_number of your actual kernel.

    Use uname -r to figure out your version_number.
