Description Santiago Erquicia 2004-04-01 20:51:52 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040312 Epiphany/1.1.12 Description of problem: The wireless card that was working under FC1 is not working in this version. It looks like it is recognized because I installed test2 from scratch and it appears in the configuration screen. If I try to activate it, this is the error message that shows up: orinoco_cs device eth1 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization. I went to hardware browser and only shows the other ethernet card, not the wireless one. I don't know what can I do to give you better information about the card. It came with the computer (Toshiba Satellite) so I don't know exactly the model or brand. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): system-config-network-1.3.16-1 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Open the configuration program 2.Press Activate 3. Actual Results: The card doesn't work Expected Results: The card is loaded and get's an IP Additional info: Is this wireless driver working with the kernel kernel-2.6.4-1.298 ?
Comment 1 Harald Hoyer 2004-04-02 07:24:46 UTC
it should work. what does # service pcmcia start # iwconfig eth1 # lsmod output, after you insert the card? is the pcmcia service activated?
Comment 2 Santiago Erquicia 2004-04-02 07:39:08 UTC
I went to the service manager and pcmcia is ticked, but it is not working. I tried to run it and nothing happens. Under the service configuration GUI this is the message: cardmgr is stopped When trying to run the commands in the console this is what happens: [root@localhost santiago]# /sbin/service pcmcia start Starting PCMCIA services: cardmgr: no sockets found! done. [root@localhost santiago]# /sbin/iwconfig eth1 eth1 No such device I think the last one is because the pcmcia is not working. What else can I do to help you out?
Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2004-04-02 08:02:53 UTC
I am reassing this bug to pcmcia.
Comment 4 Arjan van de Ven 2004-04-02 08:05:32 UTC
that's not too helpful since pcmcia-cs doesn't do hardware; that's the kernel ...
Comment 5 Don Hardaway 2004-04-02 17:43:20 UTC
I need help too--can't get my netgear wg511 54mb card to work.
Comment 6 Don Hardaway 2004-04-02 19:29:59 UTC
when i launch network--it sees my card as generic prism but no lights come on the card and it does not work.
Comment 7 Don Hardaway 2004-04-02 20:46:22 UTC
here is what it says when i try to activate my network card: determining IP information for eth1...SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such file or directory
Comment 8 Santiago Erquicia 2004-04-02 23:50:31 UTC
I updated to the kernel kernel-2.6.4-1.303 and it still hapening.
Comment 9 Don Hardaway 2004-04-03 14:41:05 UTC
I just updated to kernel-2.6.4-1.305 and still can not get the 54mb wg511 card with prism chip to light up and work.
Comment 10 Arjan van de Ven 2004-04-03 14:45:32 UTC
Don: I think you have an entirely different category card than Santiago has; would you mind using a separate bug for that to deconfuse this bug ?
Comment 11 Larry 2004-04-07 23:32:31 UTC
I have the same problem. I am running a Proxim Orinoco Classic Gold 802.11B Wireless PC Card part # 8410-WD
Comment 12 Vladimir Petrov 2004-04-13 11:31:29 UTC
I installed today FC2 Test 2 via my wireless card (FTP install) ZyAIR 100 on Compaq Armada m300 (PIII 600) and everything went fine until FC was installed. Then ZYAIR was not recognised (neither pcmcia slot). I got the same messages as Santiago Erquicia described in his posts. It seems that all drivers are loaded (part of lsmod out): orinoco_cs 7432 0 ds 10244 1 orinoco_cs pcmcia_core 52452 2 orinoco_cs,ds orinoco 44684 1 orinoco_cs hermes 6656 2 orinoco_cs,orinoco
Comment 13 Vladimir Petrov 2004-04-14 06:21:07 UTC
It seems that problem is with pcmcia driver. I tried 3com Megahertz(3c574BT) card and neither this one was initialized...
Comment 14 Antti Markus 2004-04-22 12:46:43 UTC
http://fedoranews.org/colin/fnu/issue7.shtml seems to describe the problem and offers a workaround (/sbin/modprobe yenta_socket, /etc/init.d/pcmcia start).
Comment 15 Antti Markus 2004-04-24 19:58:46 UTC
See bug 105591 for solution (PCMCIA should be started before network)
Comment 16 Antti Markus 2004-05-03 06:01:24 UTC
This problem seems to be solved in FC2 test3.
