SuSE Linux 9.3 on the Samsung P40 XVM 1600 Laptop



Some hinges about the installation of Novell/SuSE 9.3 on a Samsung P40 XVM 1600 (BTW: the P40 series is the successor of the P35 series).

PCMCIA

There are problems to get PCMCIA to work (at least with Kernel 2.6, the former 2.4 series works fine), starting cardmgr always causes the laptop to hang.

The machine freezes reproduceable as soon as cardmgr starts - various tests showed, it is definitely cardmgr, that causes the problem and not any of the modules involved. Just change the default file /etc/pcmcia/config.opts:

# /etc/pcmcia/config.opts
# Local PCMCIA Configuration File
# commented out, causes crashes on loading the pcmcia-system:
#include port 0x100-0x4ff, port 0x800-0x8ff, port 0xc00-0xcff
include port 0x100-0x4ff, port 0xc00-0xcff
include memory 0xc0000-0xfffff
include memory 0xa0000000-0xa0ffffff, memory 0x60000000-0x60ffffff
include memory 0xc8200000-0xc82fffff

# High port numbers do not always work...
include port 0x1000-0x17ff

# Extra port range for IBM Token Ring
include port 0xa00-0xaff

# Resources we should not use, even if they appear to be available

# First built-in serial port
exclude irq 4
# Second built-in serial port
#exclude irq 3
# First built-in parallel port
exclude irq 7
