I'm trying to install an Orinoco 8740-wd pcmcia adapter on FC5 2.6.15. I think the card is being recognized and the drivers are there, but I don't have the drivers linked to the card or pcmcia isn't installed or loaded or something. When I installed the o/s I had the laptop attached to a wired network, but I didn't have the pcmcia card installed.
What do I need to do to make this setup work and be specific?
I seem to be missing the pcmcia subsystem.
etc/init.d/pcmcia restart returns
Bash: /etc/init.d/pcmcia: no such file or directory
System-config-network fired off a gui interface labeled network configuration.
Selected add new device but my Orinoco adapter is not listed, I see alot of other adapters, but I don't know how to add one.
lspci –v returns
