    Default IBM Thinkpad X24 - PCMCIA check?

    I've been searching and trying to get Backtrack 4 to work with this IBM Thinkpad X24 for awhile now and I'm thinking there is something wrong with the PCMCIA slot because I am using a card that I know works and can inject on another laptop.

    My question is how can you test to see if a PCMCIA slot is not compatible with Backtrack? The card and slot works with windblows so that would lead me to believe that it's a possible driver issue in Backtrack.

    I've tried many suggestions that are just related to Linux and this laptop but with no success. Maybe this laptop just isn't compatible.

    I want to add that this website was the last thing that lead me to the PCMCIA issue

    Linux Kernel 2.6 PCMCIA - socket power bug
    ------------kernel.org/pub/linux/utils/kernel/pcmcia/powerbugs.html----------

    I have a Ricoh Co Ltd RL5c476 II (rev 80) bridge but I have no idea how to apply this fix.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
