Description Chad Huneycutt (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-01-27 19:12:43 UTC
Have a laptop that doesn't work with the kernel's controller driver
(yenta_socket)?  Please leave a comment here with the manufacturer and model.

on the contrary, i have a Sony N505VE and it _only_ works with yenta_socket and
not the other way round*. 

* it doesn't work after a suspend/resume cycle using the i82365.

Fujitsu Lifebook C1020 here. I've to admit that I don't use suspend or anything like that, but I didn't manage to work with the yenta-socket driver.
Using only pcmcia-cs currently and it works fine (apart from the fact that I'm quite inexperienced with wireless-nics / I'm able to use the card. ;-)

Sony Vaio GRX516MD. 
Works, Kernel 2.4.21pre3 (and previous) + PCMCIA-CS. 
Doesn't Work 2.5.59/60 yenta_socket. 
Fails to allocate an IRQ.  IRQs are assigned on this system using ACPI 
and most things get assigned IRQ 9.  I think it doesn't want to share IRQs.

ibm thinkpad 600X
was showing weird errors with IRQs and failing to load the yenta_socket properly
until I added 'acpi=force' to my kernel boot params.
