Description Ram Bandreddi 2000-04-11 17:19:28 EDT
I just installed Red Hat 6.2 on my Thinkpad 600E.  Everything works fine
now but I had a few minor issues getting the network card to work.  Even
though my NIC is supported, I noticed that the network interface was never
initialized because the network initialization script (S10network) happens
before the pcmcia card(s) are recognized (S45pcmcia).  Naturally a pcmcia
network card cannot be initialized if it doesn't 'exist' yet.  I could get
around this by running '/etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifup eth0' but I
didn't want to do that every time I booted the machine. I fixed this
problem by changing all 'S45pcmcia' entries in /etc/rc.d/rc?.d
to 'S05pcmcia' to force pcmcia initialization to happen before the network
initialization script.  Is there some reason why pcmcia initialization is
done in that order?  If not, I would suggest giving it a much lower
number, ie. less than 10.

The network interface should be initialized when pcmcia starts -
you're saying it does not happen then?
