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):
kernel-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot system un-docked
2.insert PCMCIA card
3.remove card
4.insert card
5.remove card ... etc
    

Actual Results:  card is not detected

Expected Results:  card detetion - beep and led activity

Additional info:
Comment 1 Dave Maley 2003-12-03 14:24:11 EST
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
disable this?
Comment 2 Dave Maley 2003-12-03 22:33:23 EST
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.

thanks.
