Question about Computers & Internet
When I installed Linux on my Asus L7200 laptop, this problem took a long time to diagnose
With many distributions with the later 2.4.x kernels (>2.4.15 I think), the PCMCIA cardbus services has been merged into the kernel with the YENTA socket. While this works with most laptops it also have problems with many others. Usually, the kernel messages will state that the card is detected correctly but then the ard will not respond to any ping messages in or out.
If your laptop does have this problem then you will need the older modular cardbus services through the PCMCIA-CS package. The information and source can be found at the Linux PCMCIA Information page. The solution for this is not for the faint of heart. It requires a recompilation of the kernel in order to disable the kernel PCMCIA implementation and install the PCMCIA-cs as a module. Again, the best source for Linux information such as kernel compilation can be found at the Linux Howtos. Also, Linux on Laptops provides many useful information on installing Linux on laptops
As of 2006/2007, the Yenta socket in the 2.6 series kernel is quite stable. It should now works properly with most if not all previously unsupported laptops.

This is a relatively common problem with Linux on laptops. In the kernel call line in Grub or LILO, make sure that the vga=7xx line is included so that the kernel locks to a particular native LCD resolution. Some common vga= values for 16-bit color are:
