Description brian 1999-03-30 15:15:57 UTC
I get MODprobe: not found when loading the PCMCIA support.. was going to try installing via ftp... Loaded off of CDROM... get to the network config point... Card is a Linksys 10/100MB PCMCIA card. Uses the DEC TuLIP driver in Caldera, used NE2000 compatible in RedHat 5.2 Tried *All* of the cards listed, none can find the card when it probes. ---5.2 has this. Mar 29 03:24:16 localhost kernel: eth0: NE2000 Compatible: port 0x320, irq 3, hw_addr 00:E0:98:03:C0:7B --- tried the NE2000 Compatible with the same port and IRQ in 5.9.. didn't detect again

Possibly this is related to instimage/modules brain-damage (reported in Bug #1974) ? I don't have a PCMCIA system available to verify this.

Hmm, sounds like the same problem I had with my no-name NE2000 NIC cards. Chances are that the /etc/pcmcia/config file does not have a driver matched up with the configuration information stored on the card. Get a working system up, insert the card, and get a copy of the syslog files with the pcmcia configuration data in them. If you're *ABSOLUTELY POSITIVE* that this card uses the tulip drivers, email David Hinds at firstname.lastname@example.org with the model of the card and the configuration data in your syslog files. He will add the card to the pcmcia config file in the next version of the pcmcia drivers, and then it will work. Until you RedHat guys get that soon-to-be-released version of the pcmcia drivers, manually add the configuration data (the /etc/pcmcia/config file is documented in the pcmcia package) to the pcmcia config file and match it up with the tulip driver. Right now, it looks like the pcmcia config file is matching the configuration data it's getting from the card with the NE2000 driver; someone (David Hinds) needs to figure out what the difference is between this card and the card that is listed in the pcmcia config file, then create two seperate entries in the pcmcia config file for the two cards: one with the NE2000 driver, one with the tulip driver. Note that the pcmcia drivers must have been compiled with 32-bit CardBus support to work!
