I recently got a new laptop and this express card was included in the package.
I'm interested in support for it in Linux, although given I didn't ask for
it, I won't be too miffed if it cannot yet be supported.
I think the main problem is getting the firmware...
Here is what I can gather...
Plugging the express card in (after "pciehp pciehp_force=1") shows:
==> /var/log/syslog <==
Jun 11 23:14:02 box kernel: [34224.509805] pciehp: Card present on
==> /var/log/messages <==
Jun 11 23:14:03 box kernel: [34225.206518] program_fw_provided_values: Could
not get hotplug parameters
Windows shows the card details as:

Installing the driver from Dell
in Windows gives the following files, that look like drivers. Are their any
others that could be candidates ?
The question then is how can the firmware be installed in linux ? I've read
the linux-dvb wiki but am still unsure.
Any help appreciated..
