|I have searched the forums extensively and simply confused myself terribly. I have a basic understanding of Gentoo, but none of how pcmcia works. I've got gentoo (2.4.2 kernel) running on my PB G3/233 and would like to enable the ORiNOCO Silver wireless card I got.
So far I've tried several different kernel configurations (with and without pcmcia support loaded, with and without various modules compiled in or as modules (eg: orinoco support)) etc. I do have wireless-tools installed. I've tried so many things now, based on various posts, I've lost track of what I've tried and not and in what combinations.
Could somebody help me sort out the mess I've made of this?
TIA for any pointers or assistance,
