Description Jason M. Sullivan 1999-05-11 16:25:32 UTC
I'm trying to load 6.0 on a TI TravelMate 5200, and when I get to the PCMCIA supplemental disk, the machine hangs. When I look at the messages in the logging console, I get the following notes... Linux PCMCIA Card Services 3.0.9 kernel build: 2.2.5-14BOOT #1 Sun Apr 18 22:28:51 EDT 1999 options: [pci] [cardbus] Intel PCIC probe: Cirrus PD627x ISA-to-PCMCIA at port 0x3e0 ofs 0x00, 2 sockets host opts : [ring] [65/6/0] [1/15/0] host opts : [ring] [65/6/0] [1/15/0] ISA irqs (default) = 3,4,5,7,9,10,11,12 polling interval = 1000ms May 11 12:10:49 cardmgr: starting, version is 3.0.8 May 11 12:10:49 cardmgr: watching 2 sockets May 11 12:10:49 cardmgr: Card services release does not match! Then the machine hangs. It's pretty clear that the cardmgr doesn't match the kernel module. Whether this causes the hang is a question, since I had a similar problem (without the mismatch) in 5.2, and that seems to be a problem with scanning bad I/O ports. I live near RTP, so I can bring the laptop in to Red Hat for further investigation.

The release mismatch has been replicated in the test lab, but I was able to continue with the installation without a hang. However, it could be the card that you are using that is not in agreement. I am going to forward this issue to a developer to get the releases in step, then you can try again and see if you are still having problems. ------- Additional Comments From 06/15/99 23:39 ------- The card worked fine in 5.1. I'm thinking maybe it's a port scanning problem (ie. the newer PCMCIA stuff added some particular port address that my laptop doesn't like. Is there a way to moify that during installation?
