Description of problem:
When using Red Hat Linux 9.0.93 running kernel 2.4.21 with a 3Com
3c574TX PCMCIA NIC, the pcmcia init script fails with the following
kernel: 3c574_cs: RequestIRQ: Resource in use
The problem doesn't appear to be with my hardware: Installing the
2.4.20 kernel on this system from Red Hat Linux 9.0 resolves the
problem. There appears to be a compatibility issue between 2.4.20 and
2.4.21 relating to pcmcia.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Red Hat Linux 9.0.93
2. Start the system with a 3c574 PCMCIA NIC
3. Observe the errors on startup as the pcmcia init script is called
4. The NIC is unavailable.
Actual Results: Error messages were produced both on the console and
in /var/log/messages as the system booted and tried to loan the card
Expected Results: I expected the card services to load properly,
making the NIC available in userland.
This kernel version is actually from Fedora test1. It's _very_ old
now, and as such bug reports against it are useless in a lot of cases.
Can you reproduce this on the final version of Fedora ?
