Using Atheros Cards with EPIA Motherboards
Some VIA EPIA motherboards (MII 10000) have problems with PCMCIA cards (DWL-G650 C2 or any other Atheros based card) which require booting the kernel using the a special option. If you see the message
PCI: Failed to allocate mem resource
Then you may need to add the following to your kernel command line:
So, in GRUB’s menu/lst, you might have something like:
kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.10 root=/dev/hda6 yenta_socket.override_bios=1 ro
or, if you’re more inclined to Lilo you might have to add something like:
append = "yenta_socket.override_bios=1"
To the correct stanza.
Thanks to John Ronan <jronan at tssg dot org> for making us aware of this problem.
