Re: Old thinkpad and X11, 6.1.2 update

Sorry, I see nothing in the output from dmesg or acpidump (in the
parent message of this one for anyone else reading, that is
Message-id: <> ) that I can use to explain
the problem.

Note that doesn't mean that the information needed isn't there, I'm
no expert, not even really knowledgable, about PC hardware, and even
less about ACPI.

To summarise for anyone else who might be reading, and able to help,
Riccardo has a thinkpad (relatively old) that has what looks to be some
kind of hardware resource conflict between the cardbus (or its devices)
and the display adaptor.

The effect is that the display hangs (does nothing) when a cardbus
card is plugged in (tested with wired & wireless network cards, but
it seems irrelevant whether they're in use or not.)

To me that smells like an interrupt being stolen by the cardbus system
somehow that X needs to control the display (wscons clearly doesn't,
as that apparently works just fine).

With no cardbus cards plugged in X works fine.  The cardbus cards
themselves work fine.

Anyone have any suggestions for Riccardo to try ?
