Description Mikael Carneholm 2003-10-23 16:08:43 EDT
Description of problem:
On my Dell CPXj laptop with a Xircom Cardbus Ethernet/56K modem PCMCIA combo,
the modem is unusable until "/etc/init.d/pcmcia restart" is called. Maybe the
order of which the services are started is affecting this? (just guessing here)

How reproducible:
Always.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot up & log in
2. Use redhat-config-network or wvdial to start the connect procedure
3. [Activating the interface fails]
4. Restart cardmgr/pcmcia by calling "/etc/init.d/pcmcia restart"
5. Same as 2
6. Success.
    
Actual results:
Activating the interface does not work after normal boot

Expected results:
Activating the interface should work after normal boot without having to restart
cardmgr/pcmcia

This is most probably a kernel issue.
