Description roberts 1998-11-17 15:01:24 UTC
If you build a custom kernal w/RH 5.2 using the supplied
2.0.36 kernel source and the distributed pcmcia-cs-3.0.5
source, pcmcia/card_services will not work.

Platform: Gateway 2000 9100XL laptop, 266 P-II, 192 MB ram.

Would the following be helpful?

With my Gateway Solo 2200, I have built the supplied kernel with the
pcmcia-cs-3.0.5 and it works, except for the pcmcia automatic
suspend/resume, and just one of my cards, a NE2000 compatible network
card does not load:

Comment 2 Cristian Gafton 1998-11-19 02:10:59 UTC
We need a much more explicit explanation of the "will not work" part.

Comment 3 Preston Brown 1998-11-23 16:21:59 UTC
This is understood to be the case, because the symbols from the pcmcia
package don't match the symbols in the new kernel.  You will need to
rebuild the pcmcia package against the new kernel from the source RPM,
or get the updated kernel RPMs from updates.redhat.com.
