Description Jason Costomiris 1999-05-20 13:18:20 UTC
I've tried using both a 3c574-TX and a 3c589D. Here's the sequence of events: 1. boot using the 4/19 boot.img 2. Answer those first two or three questions. 3. Answer "yes" to "need PCMCIA support during installation" 4. insert the disk with the 4/19 pcmcia.img written to it. 5. Flip to VC4, note that the card is properly identified and modules are loaded. Here's what it says: executing: './network start eth0' + ./network: /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup: not found start cmd exited with status 2 Both the 574 and the 589 exhibit the same behavior. Has anyone managed a successful network install that requires PCMCIA? Not that it really matters, but it's a Mitsubishi Amity CN that's been running Debian just fine. :- ) Are there newer images that actually work?

Any status update?

The "executing: './network start eth0' ./network: /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup: not found start cmd exited with status 2" message is not the real problem. Look for more info in the same log area.

This appears to be directly related to the 3c574-TX I'm using. It does NOT work at all under RH 6.0. It worked great under 5.2, and still works great with Debian. I just re-ran the installer using the 5/28/1999 images, and the install works with a 3c589, but NOT a 3c574. Weird, no?
Comment 4 Jason Costomiris 1999-06-02 18:24:59 UTC
Further update.. The 3c574-TX WILL initialize properly under RH6 if it's run at 10 Mbps. It fails if initialized at 100. After the card has initialized, moving it to a 100 Mbps port causes the card to renegotiate at 100Mbps. Weird, huh? I swapped out the drive and confirmed that both Debian and even Slackerware behave properly.. Perhaps it's an option being passed to the pcmcia cs daemons?

The 3c574_cs driver did not properly initialize the MII transceiver until the PCMCIA driver release following the one included in RH6.0.
