I have problem getting the card to work. Here are a few details.

Linux kernel: 2.4.9-31

Module                  Size  Used by    Tainted: P
orinoco_cs              4908   0
orinoco                28548   0 [orinoco_cs]
hermes                  3744   0 [orinoco_cs orinoco]
ds                      7040   2 [orinoco_cs]

%cardctl ident
Socket 1:
  product info: "Dell", "TrueMobile 1150 Series PC Card", "Version 01.01",
  manfid: 0x0156, 0x0002
  function: 6 (network)

Yet, the card is shown (in /var/log/messages) as:
cardmgr[592]: socket 1: Intersil PRISM2 11 Mbps  Wireless Adapter
cardmgr[592]: executing: './network start eth1'
/etc/hotplug/net.agent: register event not handled
dhcpcd[15259]: timed out waiting for a valid DHCP server response

I have all three modules in

and hermes.conf in /etc/pcmcia

I have added to /etc/pcmcia/config:
device "orinoco_cs"
  class "network" module "hermes", "orinoco", "orinoco_cs"

and modified the PRISM2 and Lucent Wavelan/IEEE to bind to orinoco_cs:

card card "Intersil PRISM2 11 Mbps Wireless Adapter"
  bind "wvlan_cs"

card "Lucent Technologies WaveLAN/IEEE Adapter"
  version "Lucent Technologies", "WaveLAN/IEEE" (line 912)
  manfid 0x0156, 0x0002 (line 914)
  bind "orinoco_cs"

yet there is error in /var/log/messages:

cardmgr[564]: config error, file 'config' line 912: no ID method for this card
cardmgr[564]: config error, file 'config' line 914: ID method already defined

Any diagnosis/help would be greatly appreciated.
