Description Roy W. Reter 2003-09-20 19:14:35 EDT
Description of problem: In RH 9 latest kernel source (2.4.20-20.9), orinoco
pcmcia drivers don't init on compiling a custom kernel and reboot with the kernel.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Get the kernel-source-2.4.20-20.9.i386.rpm and install.
cd /usr/src/linux-2.4
make mrproper
cp configs/kernel-2.4.20-i686.config .config
make menuconfig and exit
make dep
make clean
make bzImage
make modules
make modules_install
cp System.map /boot/System.map-2.4.20-20.9custom
cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-20.9custom
cd /boot
mkinitrd -v initrd-2.4.20-20.9custom.img 2.4.20-20.9custom
edit /etc/grub.conf to reflect new custom kernel and initrd
reboot and the when pcmcia starts up, it never inits the card

Steps to Reproduce:
1. see above
Actual results:
computer boots but no pcmcia

Expected results:
pcmcia card to init, this is supposedly now the same kernel binary that came out
in updates, yet the pcmcia doesn't init.  All works fine with the kernel rpm
that comes from RH.  What gives??
