Problems with FC 2 - Touch-pad and PCMCIA Ethernet card.



Hi everybody,

I'm an Italian developer/system engineer and a GNU/Linux user. I'm new on this list.
I used RedHat products since 1998.
I installed FC2 on my laptop (ACER Travelmate 212 TX) and it works quite well. The term "quite" referes to different working from FC1 (previuosly installed):
- The touch-pad doesn't get the left-click by simply pushing on it, as it did before (FC1).
- The system doesn't recognize my PCMCIA Ethernet card, as it did before (FC1).


In the following there are some details about the Ethernet card.

The Ethernet card I have:
PCMCIA Fast Ethernet 16 bit PC Card - Hamlet FE1500 10/100M

My system is:
[root MyPC root]# uname -a
Linux MyPC.mydomain.local 2.6.6-1.435 #1 Mon Jun 14 09:09:07 EDT 2004 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux


The Hardware browser on my system shows:
PCMCIA/PC-Card devices
    OZ6812 Cardbus controller
        Manufacuter: ...
        Driver: yenta_socket

PCMCIA service (with or without the Ethernet card plugged in):
[root MyPC root]# service pcmcia status
cardmgr is stopped
[root MyPC root]# service pcmcia start
Starting PCMCIA services: cardmgr[3572]: no sockets found!
done.
[root MyPC root]# cardmgr
cardmgr[3614]: no sockets found!


An extract from the boot log:

Can anybody help me?
Thanks in advance.
