Dominik I tried your suggestion , Still no luck.
I agree that it looks like a resource problem.
interestingly if i compile only the 16 bit potion of pcmcia and dont
compile yenta or cardbius .. it gives no errors.. so whats the deal
here? It looks like 32 bit cardmus memmory managemnet needs to be
reviewed. i will post the results of both test in next email..right
now i have a three year old craving attention.
