i have this clamshell project i have been playing with for a while andi am back on it for now. there are a few hardware pieces which dont have modules. could you help me figure out how to get them recognized please.

Code:
clamshell ~ # lspci -k
0000:00:0b.0 Host bridge: Apple Computer Inc. UniNorth AGP
        Kernel driver in use: agpgart-uninorth
        Kernel modules: uninorth-agp
0000:00:10.0 VGA compatible controller: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI Rage Mobility L AGP 2x (rev 64)
0001:10:0b.0 Host bridge: Apple Computer Inc. UniNorth PCI
        Kernel modules: uninorth-agp
0001:10:17.0 Unassigned class [ff00]: Apple Computer Inc. KeyLargo Mac I/O (rev 02)
        Kernel driver in use: macio
0001:10:18.0 USB controller: Apple Computer Inc. KeyLargo USB
        Kernel driver in use: ohci_hcd
0001:10:19.0 USB controller: Apple Computer Inc. KeyLargo USB
0002:20:0b.0 Host bridge: Apple Computer Inc. UniNorth Internal PCI
        Kernel modules: uninorth-agp
0002:20:0f.0 Ethernet controller: Apple Computer Inc. UniNorth GMAC (Sun GEM)
        Kernel driver in use: gem


oddly, the VGA card does not seem to have a driver in use but i am able to start X and run dwm and browsers without a hitch.

thank you

Have you tried Pappy's Kernel Seeds and plugging lspci -n into this database?

106b0021 Yes Apple Computer Inc. UniNorth GMAC (Sun GEM) sungem v2.6.25-


so the video card currently uses userspace driver which has been reported to work better than kernel driver (http://linuxtidbits.wordpress.com/2008/11/29/gentoo-on-an-clamshell-ibook/). I am not sure why i am told to ignore 2 components.

my biggest problem is that the airport card that i plugged into the PCI slot of the clamshell does not appear anywhere on the lspci lists. any ideas on how I can have it recognized? Thank you for the help

If a piece of hardware isn't on the lspci list, that means it either isn't connected correctly, or it isn't a PCI/PCIe device.

odd but lshw command does show the card:

Code:
*-network
       description: Wireless interface
       physical id: 1
       logical name: eth1
       serial: 00:30:65:1e:58:6f
       capabilities: ethernet physical wireless
       configuration: broadcast=yes driver=airport driverversion=3.2.1-gentoo-r2 firmware=Lucent/Agere 8.12 link=no multicast=yes wireless=IEEE 802.11b
