wl54ag wifi card errors with "cardbus support disabled"

Corey J. Bukolt
Hi list.

I have OpenBSD 4.6 GENERIC on my Acer laptop and can't seem to get my
NEC Aterm wl54ag pcmcia wfi card to work.  The chipset is AR5212, which
_should_ be supported by the ath driver.
However, when I insert the card it isn't detected and dmesg spits out
"cardslot0: cardbus support disabled".
If I stick in a prism based card the wi driver picks it up without issue
so the slot is good, and I tested the NEC card under linux, so its also
good.

I'm no OpenBSD expert, but perhaps the ath driver doesn't know it
supports this card?

Any ideas guys?

Ahhh, okay.
Since the laptop is useless without wifi, might as well give -current a
shot.

Thanks.

Try enabling CardBus in your BIOS...

a full dmesg with the insert event of the card in question sent to the
list might help.

It's an AMIBIOS from 2000, and its pretty rudimentary.
I couldn't find anything related to CardBus.

That's a boot with the card inserted?
I guess not by the message at the end of the dmesg.

You could try to disable acpi and run with apm.
(Normally it is the other way around, so don't get your hopes up.)

# sudo config -ef /bsd
disable acpi
enable apm
quit
# sudo reboot

Okay, I gave that a try, only now my system hangs during boot, as soon
as it starts to detect the pcmcia slot.
This happens even if I boot without the card.
Here are the last few lines of output:

pcmcia0 at cardslot0
uvm_fault(0xd088cfc0, 0x9097c000, 0, 1) -> e
kernel: page fault trap, code=0
stopped at Xintr_IOapic2+0x35: Mov( apic_maxlevel(,%eax, 4), %ebx
ddb>

and it gets stranger.
If I press a key, the following repeats over a few times, and then the
system locks up entirely.

ddb> PANIC: mtx_enter: locking against myself
Stopping a t wwwGcJ=0x4: leave
RUN AT LEAST TRACE AND PS AND INCLUDE OUTPUT WHEN REPORTING THIS PANIC!
DO NOT EVE BOTHER REPORTING THIS WITHOUT INCLUDING THAT INFORMATION.

Is there a way I can reenable acpi from the bootloader?
I stupidly neglected to backup my kernel, thinking something like this
wouldn't happen.

Okay, got the system back to booting after I RTFM'd boot(8)and
boot_config(8).
Sorry, for asking questions before checking the man pages, bad linux
user habit.....

Ok, my bad.

At the boot prompt:

boot -c bsd
disable apm
enable acpi
quit

Sorry.

It's all good.
Any other last minute ideas before I give -current a shot?

Can't think of anything right now, looks to be your hardware.
Worst case you will have to use another wireless card, because your pcb
the chip is soldered to does something funny.
You wont regret to run snapshots/-current, it's much more fun than
-stable. :)

Yup, it should definitely be more fun. :)
Thanks for all the help.
