Description of problem:
Have built new kernel - using std config file as a test prior to
making changes, but networking does not start. Distributed kernel
works no problem. Machine is HP Omnibook XE2DB laptop with 3com 3c589
Used config kernel-2.4.22-i686.config
steps to build
== also edits to grub conf and copy image up to /boot
== kernel boots but network does not start
output from dmesg which is clearly relevant is
Linux Kernel Card Services 3.1.22
options: [pci] [cardbus] [pm]
ds: no socket drivers loaded
unloading Kernel Card Services
no other errors appear to have been reported before this.
there are various postings on other forums about similar errors but
none is exactly this one. It seems something card services needs is
not loaded or just 'missing'. Is this a kernel config error, do I
need to change something from 'm' to 'y' ? Or something else ?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
PCMCIA does not run in new kernel
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make new kernel as described above
2. Try to boot kernel
Expected Results: It should work.
Please note I have also run mkinitrd and copied the resultant image
up to /boot and made sure the System.map file is ok.
Have looked at other bugs similar to this, #88054 has a secondary
comment which is actually a workable fix for this problem. Although
this needs to be mended its probably ok to close this bug on the
grounds that its a duplicate.
All the best
