Description Steve Wills 1999-02-10 23:07:29 UTC
I've had several reports of the kernel OOPS'ing when trying
to load the driver for PCMCIA

The solution seems to be changing a line in
/etc/pcmcia/config.opts from this:

include memory 0xc0000-0xfffff, memory 0xa0000000-0xa0ffffff

to:

include memory 0xc0000-0xfffff

We need to actually test this as I am reluctant to make such a big
change without knowing for a fact that this fixes the problems.

Testing token ring cards is very difficult without an actual working
token ring network on site. We do have a couple token ring pcmcia
cards but no medium to connect them to see if they work right. We will
have to get something configured as soon as we can.
