Uhmm, I have my microdrive working fine on my TiBook. It maintains a happy little crypto filesystem for quick and easy removability. Ahh, the joys of being paranoid.
Anyway, here's what I did to make it work and my current config:
- 2.4.9 (benh0)
- built all pcmcia stuff from the kernel itself (pcmcia support compiled in, pcmcia ide support as a module)
- updated pcmcia package to rebuild the userspace controls (just wanted to update for no particular reason)
Now, I needed to change some things in two files, however both changes to do were mentioned in the pcmcia package README.
--+ change every instance of 'ide_cs' to 'ide-cs' (someone changed this in the kernel source when they last monkeyed around with it) or that module will not load correctly
--+ if you have the 'default' config.opts file, after "# System resources available for PCMCIA devices" there are, I think, 3 lines (I deleted the incorrect ones) that start with 'include port' and 'include memory', comment-out/remove thouse lines and use this:
include port 0x100-0x4ff, port 0x1000-0x17ff
include memory 0x80000000-0x80ffffff
You should now be golden. Hope that helps!
