I have a Acer Travelmate 8101 (1.6 GHz) and this forum has already been
very helpful to get Linux running on this machine. However, I still
have a number of problems and maybe somebody here can help me  :) 



- The DVD drive worked out of the box with Hoary's kernel (although
without

DMA, it seemed), but all the kernels that I compiled myself don't
recognize it.

This includes various flavour of 2.6.11 and 2.6.12 kernels. The output
from dmesg regarding disks is:

Attempting manual resume



This is from a 2.6.12-rc6 kernel, but the output looks similar for
previous versions.

I used Hoary's .config file (/boot/config-2.6.10... ) as a start, so
the necessary modules should be there. I applied the multiple io_apic
patch mentioned

previously in this thread and included a fixed DSDT table. Otherwise, I
didn't change anything of the kernel sources.



(BTW for those interested: I applied the 3c22 DSDT patches from

acpi.sourceforge.net and ACPI seems to work fine: Battery, cpu
frequency scaling)



Any ideas?



- Has anybody got PCMCIA working? When I start cardmgr, the system
hangs and has to be rebooted. dmesg sais about PCMCIA:



Linux Kernel Card Services

options:  [pci] [cardbus] [pm]

ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:06:09.0[A] -> GSI 18 (level, low) -> IRQ 18

Yenta: CardBus bridge found at 0000:06:09.0 [1025:0070]

Yenta O2: res at 0x94/0xD4: ea/00

Yenta O2: enabling read prefetch/write burst

Yenta: ISA IRQ mask 0x0438, PCI irq 18

ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:06:09.1[A] -> GSI 18 (level, low) -> IRQ 18

Yenta: CardBus bridge found at 0000:06:09.1 [1025:0070]

Yenta: ISA IRQ mask 0x0438, PCI irq 18

Socket status: 30000006

PCI: Enabling device 0000:06:09.3 (0080 -> 0082)

ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:06:09.3[A] -> GSI 18 (level, low) -> IRQ 18

Yenta: CardBus bridge found at 0000:06:09.3 [1025:0070]

Yenta: ISA IRQ mask 0x0438, PCI irq 18

Socket status: 30000410



so this looks fine. Previous kernels gave me a kernel oops for
yenta_socket, but

I don't see this here any more. 

Any ideas? It's not important at the moment, but still it would be nice
to have ...



Kind regards
