Anybody know what's up with this?

pcic0 at isa0 port 0x3e2-0x3e3 iomem 0xd0000-0xdffff
pcic0: controller 0 (Intel 82365SL Revision 1) has sockets A and B

pcic0: controller 0 detecting irqs with mask 0xdeb8:..9
pcic0: can't share irq with cards; polling for socket events
wi0 at pcmcia0 function 0 port 0x380-0x3bf: could not get mac address, attach failed

This is a new system, with a new "Orinoco" WaveLAN PC-Card Turbo WEP (Silver).
The card worked in a notebook running Windows, but I didn't test the PCMCIA-ISA
adapter somewhere else.

Since the card is probed correctly, it seems to be working a bit ;-)

Why does attach fail? What shall I do?


P.S.: this is on NetBSD/i386 1.4X via CVS update from sometimes last weekend.
