i'm trying to get my PCMCIA netcards working with m0n0wall: a megahertz
XJ10BT/BC (same as CC10BT) and/or a xircon PS-CE2-10.
ok, so i've seen the other posts in the archive regarding getting
NON-wireless PCMCIA netcards working. i understand that the source of the
problem is that generic-pc-1.0.img includes only a very limited
pccard.conf, with only wireless cards listed. i've also grabbed
http://dwaalspoor.org/pccard.conf (thank you M. G. (Michael) de Bruin) as
a first step.
my problem is that i can't figure out how to incorporate the pccard.conf
back into generic-pc-1.0.img (or at least into /dev/ad0a/mfsroot.gz), as i
do not have a netbsd machine at my disposal, nor the expertise to work
that kind of magic. i did manage to remount /dev/ad01 as writable, and
copied the new pccard.conf permanently to the hard drive. i also found
/cf/boot/loader.rc, and that it contains:
load -t mfs_root /mfsroot
however, according to loader.help, there doesn't seem to be a way to
pre-mount mfsroot before the autoboot and replace /etc/pccard.conf.
yes, i know all i have to do is upload the new pccard.conf into /etc using
exec.php, then restart pccardd. however, these changes don't survive a
reboot, and in any case it doesn't help me at all because....
... i'm trying to get this working on a DEC multi (intel), which has one
built-in ethernet interface, and two pcmica slots. yes, the built-in
ethernet is recognized, but since it is the ONLY interface recognized and
available, and since the console menu won't let me set LAN and WAN to the
same interace, i can't connect over the LAN using the webGUI.
so i'm stuck. has anyone come up with a clever way to incorporate a new
pccard.conf (or any other file, for that matter) into generic-pc-1.0.img
(or mfsroot.gz)? or, perhaps someone can provide me with a rebuilt image?
i can provide you with ftp access to push up such an image...
many thanks in advance,
