A daemon is a little "service" that runs behind the scenes. For example, on a Web server, there is a server daemon. You don't see it, but its job is to feed out pages that users ask for.

In your case, it seems to be a daemon for managing PCMCIA cards. However, that's about the extent of my knowledge there.

A daemon is a system process. Just run 'top' in a VT to see if you have 'cardmgr' somewhere running.

If it is running, I'd imagine editing your PCMCIA script to tell it not to probe that address range would solve your problem. But I've never used PCMCIA with Linux, so I don't know exactly what you'd do. Hope this helps somewhat.

^^^^ Is that the religious freak that thinks Unix based systems are made by the devil and that all Unix based systems should eliminate the term daemon and change the permissions numbers(ie. 666)?

Does anybody have a link to that? I heard about it...hahaha oh man:rolleyes: I wonder what will happen when that guy hits the real-world!?

^^^Can I reclaim the brain cells that were destroyed while glancing at that thread?

Let's try a different approach.

Can anyone point me to a Linux forum that is pretty active for these kinds of questions, please? ....your faves/recommendations?
