|I've been trying to get this to work without success.
I configured my kernel to include ISA support, pcmcia support, and support for the hermes/orinoco driver. Basically everything I've seen other people using on x86 with this card.
I start hotplug as per usual.
I change the settings in /etc/pcmcia/config.opts to reflect the fact that I have an aluminium powerbook.
I start pcmcia and whack the card in.
GetNextTuple(). No matching CIS configuration, maybe you need the ignore_cis_vcc=1 parameter.
orinoco_cs: GetFirstTuple: No more items
If I pass that parameter to the module as it suggests it makes no difference.
I'm not entirely sure what to try now.

Where there's open source , there's a way.
