Hello Dave,
You are right. Both, my laptop and PC are running same version of
linux. (i did the installation from the same CDs). How ever, on the PC
i have Disabled "yenta_socket" from the kernel and recompiled the
kernel to support pcmcia_cs.
How ever my concern is that why isnt the EVDO card working on my PC. I
have been tring for 8 days now to get it to work. The evdo card has an
usb controler insde and its simulated to be two Usb's (one for data
and one for commands). Is there any place where i can look for help
regarding this?
Thanks for ur time,
