Description flame 2003-12-18 02:09:14 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1)

Description of problem:
In the file '/etc/pcmcia/config' the following section is commented out,

#card "Ark Sky Link Express PA2600"
#  manfid 0xffff, 0x1090
#  bind "pcnet_cs"

This causes my pcmcia network card not to be detected.

This was working in RedHat 7.3 , but was commented out in RedHat 8.0
and is still commented out in Fedora core 1

RedHat 7.3 , RedHat 8.0 & Fedora core 1 have the same version & date
details in the file
# config 1.154 2001/01/05 00:03:17 (David Hinds)

If I uncomment this section I can get my network card to work.

It seems that between RedHat 7.3 & RedHat 8.0 someone has commented
out this section. If have searched the internet but can not find an
explanation as to why it was commented out.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Bill, sorry to bounce this over without asking, but this is something
that happened way before my time, maybe you can remember? %changelog in
hwdata is no help, unfortunately.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2005-05-16 13:03:00 EDT
No, it was that way in the first import from pcmcia-cs.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2005-05-16 13:16:05 EDT
Looking at the package from that era, it was commented out in the upstream tarball.
Comment 4 Pete Zaitcev 2005-05-16 19:05:54 EDT
Requestor, I need two pieces of information, please:

1. Run with only "manfid" commented, like so:

card "Ark Sky Link Express PA2600"
  #manfid 0xffff, 0x1090
  bind "pcnet_cs"

Let us know if it works.

2. Run "cat /var/lib/pcmcia/stab" and attach the results.

I think we ought to add the descriptor back, it seems lost.
However, it may be desirable to do same as for other Sky Link.
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2005-09-30 16:58:21 EDT
Closing, no response.

Note that, in the current development tree, this file no longer exists. All
matching is done based on the driver's own ID tables.
