I've got problems which I cannot solve with the internal information. I installed SuSe6.3 on a Toshiba Satellite 420. Since I have no e-mail and internet acces at home I bought a pcmcia card from 3com 65K Modem 3056. It seem that this is regognized and according to some hardware lists it should be supported - what bothers me is that during boot up it tells me "cardmgr[110]: unsupported card in socket 0" which might be the empty slot because according to the product info the card is regonized correctly.

anyway I cannot activate the modem which seems to be either busy or not there !
So what could be wrong ?
Below are some listings from my xterm which tells me that the pcmcia service works.

Thanks for any help!

During bootup the following message occurs and
3Com", "U.S. Robotics 3056 is indeed the card I have installed
cardmgr[110]: watching 2 sockets
cardmgr[110]: initializing socket 0
cardmgr[110]: unsupported card in socket 0
cardmgr[110]: product info: "3Com", "U.S. Robotics 3056", "Global 56done Card"


# cardctl status
Socket 0:
5V 16-bit PC Card
function 0: [ready], [wp]

here as well it seem that the pcmcia card is recognized !

here I can see that there is PCMCIA Card Services in the kernel !

because of the above, I cannot understand why I cannot activate the modem !
