Description of problem:
I'm having a problem with PCMCIA on a Fedora Core 1 installation. The
laptop is a Fujitsu S-4572. When I boot this laptop "undocked" - it
has a port replicator - PCMCIA cards don't work. It won't even detect
that a card has been inserted.
When running RHL9 on this same system the PCMCIA works just fine. In
fact a RHL9 kernel (2.4.20-20.9) dropped onto this same FC1 install
works just fine.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot system un-docked
2.insert PCMCIA card
5.remove card ... etc
Actual Results: card is not detected
Expected Results: card detetion - beep and led activity
correction to above mentioned info
- the RHL9 kernel dropped into the FC1 install is _not_ working
properly, as I had initially thought.
- the RHL9 installation is working fine when booted un-docked
- 2.4.22-1.2129 appears to suffer from the same problem as .2115
Could this be a problem w/ "laptop mode" in Fedora? Is there a way to
seems to be an issue w/ the pcmcia initscript. modprobing the modules
manually then starting the service seems to work for me.
i'll close this bug, and open a new one against the initscript if needed.
