Solved: complete freeze upon pcmcia-card insertion

Some notebook-users (including me :) ) in conjunction with specific pcmcia-cards experience the following problem:

When you insert your card, your computer completly freezes. Even the /var/log/messages isn't updated, nor a kernel-panic comes up.

It took me hours to find out, what's the reason for that:
conflicting resources!

There are two resources, that might conflict:
    io-ports

    io-memory


First try the io-ports, I think, it's more often the io-ports, which make trouble...


1. IO-ports

In /etc/pcmcia/config.opts are entries for the included io-ports:
Code:
cat /etc/pcmcia/config.opts
#(...snip...)
include  port 0x100-0x4ff, port 0x800-0x8ff, port 0xc00-0xcff
#(...snip...)


Now take a look at your already used/reserved io-ports:
Code:
cat /proc/ioports

Make sure, to remove all entries in /etc/pcmcia/config.opts, which are already in use!
Note: cat /proc/ioports shows 4-digit (okay, it's no digit, it's hex) numbers, in /etc/pcmcia/config.opts are 3-digit numbers, so you have to read the 0x100 in /etc/pcmcia/config.opts as 0x0100,

If all of the predefined io-ports are in use, try to choose an adressrange from 0xp00-0xpff, where p, insert a hex-number from 0,1,2,...,9,a,...,f.
This adress must not be listet in /proc/ioports!


1. IO-memory

In /etc/pcmcia/config.opts are entries for the included io-memory:
Code:
cat /etc/pcmcia/config.opts
#(...snip...)
include memory 0xc0000-0xfffff
include memory 0xa0000000-0xa0ffffff, memory 0x60000000-0x60ffffff
#(...snip...)


In the normal case, the cardmgr (it's the "pcmcia-daemon") scans these adress-ranges and searches a free segment, that's not used by another device.
Unfortunately, this could sometimes fail, so you have to comment the predefined "include memory..." entries out and insert new ones.
Try to search an memory-range from 0xp0000-0xpffff and/or 0xp0000000-0xp0ffffff that's not used! Again, check that with:

Code:
cat /proc/iomem


Don't try to use the adressrange, that's assigned to your pcmcia-controller, that will not work.


One last hint... a little bit off-topic, but I wasted too much time, before knowing this: Many pcmcia-Cards are so called pc-cards, the are 16 bit cards!! To use 16-bit pcmcia cards, you must have ISA-support compiled into your kernel.
One example for acutal 16-bit cards: wlan-cards with the atmel chipset seem to be mostly (all of them?) 16-bit cards.


So, wish you good look :)

Worked like a charm.

Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you !! Saved me DAYS in debugging.

(P.S. This fix was for my laptop: HP Pavilion zt1210)

The first time I followed the advice in the first post, I was somewhat successful in my computer not freezing when I boot my laptop with a pcmcia card inserted or inserting it after boot. But after rebooting, my computer has been freezing each time. Each of the commented "#include port ..." line was tried and didn't resolve the issue. The one left uncommented is the one currently in use. I'm still not having any luck with my system not freezing.

I'm using the 2.6.0 kernel.
My PCMCIA card is a Linksys WPC11 v3.0 802.11b wireless network card.
I have pcmcia-cs 3.2.5 installed.

cat /etc/pcmcia/config.opts (snip)
Code:
#include port 0x100-0x4ff, port 0x800-0x8ff, port 0xc00-0xcff
#include port 0x100-0x16f, port 0x800-0x8ff, port 0xc00-0xcf7

#include memory 0xc0000-0xfffff
#include memory 0xa0000000-0xa0ffffff, memory 0x60000000-0x60ffffff


I commented out the above just like displayed and when I started pcmcia "/etc/init.d/pcmcia start" (note: I previously "rc-update del pcmcia"ed.) the system did NOT freeze. This was expected. I then began uncommenting one line at a time and had the following results:

The following two lines, uncommented one at a time or both together seem to be the cause of the system freezing. I checked /proc/iomem several times and the ranges are not included, so I don't see what the problem is. Any ideas?

The culprits:
Code:
 include memory 0xd0000-0xdffff
and
Code:
 include memory 0xa0000000-0xa0ffffff, memory 0x60000000-0x60ffffff

I have been fooling around with the memory ranges and have concluded the following:

The following lines seem to not freeze the system either:

Code:
include memory 0xd0000-0xd0ffe
include memory 0xd1000-0xd1ffe
include memory 0xd2000-0xd2ffe
include memory 0xd3000-0xd3ffe
include memory 0xd4000-0xd4ffe
include memory 0xd5000-0xd5ffe
include memory 0xd6000-0xd6ffe
include memory 0xd7000-0xd7ffe
include memory 0xd8000-0xd8ffe
include memory 0xd9000-0xd9ffe
include memory 0xda000-0xdaffe
include memory 0xdb000-0xdbffe
include memory 0xdc000-0xdcffe
include memory 0xdd000-0xddffe
include memory 0xde000-0xdeffe
include memory 0xdf000-0xdfffe


The following memory resources seem be a problem since if included in the above lines, the system freezes:
Code:
0xd0fff
0xd1fff
#Verified up to 0xd2fff only


I noticed that merely starting and stopping pcmcia "/etc/init.d/pcmcia start|stop" doesn't allow me to debug changes to /etc/pcmcia/config.opts.

For example I've made changes to /etc/pcmcia/config.opts, stopped and restarted pcmcia and the system didn't freeze. I'd even remove the pcmcia card and reinsert it and the system was still running smoothly. Then I'd reboot and start pcmcia with the pcmcia card inserted, and the system would freeze. So I've had to restart the computer each time I made a change to /etc/pcmcia/config.opts to debug my problem, which has been taking several hours now, and I'm still not finished.

Mizery,

Do you keep getting the error ?

/sbin/runscript.sh: line 526: 3718 Segmentation fault /sbin/modprobe ds
* Starting pcmcia...
cardmgr[3719]: watching 1 socket [ ok ]

I cant seem to find a good memory location as well.

No, I don't, but I have been going through /etc/pcmcia/config.opts and have pretty much given up trying to go through memory and port ranges to rule out the ones that cause my system to freeze. Here's what I have so far:
Code:

#include port 0x100-0x4ff, port 0x800-0x8ff, port 0xc00-0xcff
 include port 0x100-0x16f, port 0x800-0x8ff, port 0xc00-0xcf7

Any ideas?

I'm stupid.
I'm using a Linksys WPC11 v3.0 802.11b PCMCIA wireless network card.
I'm using the 2.6.3 kernel (mm-sources) -- but I'm sure the following will work with any 2.6.* kernel.

I restored my /etc/pcmcia/config.opts ports/memory ranges to the following:
Code:
#include port 0x100-0x4ff, port 0x800-0x8ff, port 0xc00-0xcff
#include port 0x100-0x16f, port 0x800-0x8ff, port 0xc00-0xcf7
 include port 0x100-0x16f,                   port 0xc00-0xcf7
#include memory 0xc0000-0xfffff
 include memory 0xd0000-0xdffff

 include memory 0xa0000000-0xa0ffffff, memory 0x60000000-0x60ffffff

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

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


Yep, I had no need to go through what I was going through before. It was completely unnecessary because....

in my kernel config I had:
Code:
Bus options (PCI, PCMCIA, EISA, MCA, ISA)
  <M> PCMCIA/CardBus support
    <M> CardBus yenta-compatible bridge support
Device Drivers
  Networking support
    Networking device support
      [*] PCMCIA network device support


That final item "PCMCAI network device support" was the culprit. I wasn't supposed to have that since I already had PCMCIA-CS installed. I had PCMCIA-CS 3.2.5 installed, but I upgraded to 3.2.7 now. I recompiled excluding PCMCIA network device support (in the kernel) and now "/etc/init.d/pcmcia start" loads properly and "cardctl ident" identifies my card correctly. Yey!!! After nearly two months, I'm back on track.

I think I had been through this once already but I did an update recently and mistakenly blatted over my old opts when I did etc-update. Could've spent hours tracking this town (just imagine..first reboot after update and everything freezes - no you can't use your nice new kde 3.2 - smack!)

Makes me think that all configuration files should be version controlled.

i'm having an almost identical problem with my atmel wlan usb card. complete freeze. normally on a kernel panic i get some flashing leds, but nothing. i don't have access to it right now, but i'm willing to bet it's happening for the same reason. It's occuring on this Compaq Presario laptop, a few years old ( <-- for the search logs). I'll post again if this solves the problem.

and about the kernel tip: wow. effing outstanding man. i've always wondered why knoppix and other live cds could get that thing going, but i would always fail miserably. 8)

Want it more easy? Follow the steps I found here: http://c133.org/ze4420/#pcmcia

Simply add the exclude lines and you're gone.
