Re: [linux-tr] Problems with Kernel 2.2.3ac-4 and TokenRing PC-Card

The different shared RAM addresses between 2.0.x and 2.2.x is normal. The
ibmtr driver now reports things a bit differently. Paul Norton assured me
that ibmtr is behaving correctly in regards to that.

Unfortunately I can't help with the more pressing problem of ibmtr not being
able to open your PCMCIA card. I no longer have a  TP770, nor do I have any
more Token-Ring cards. I work for a new employer that uses, ack, ethernet.
