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):
Steps to Reproduce:
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.
No, it was that way in the first import from pcmcia-cs.
Looking at the package from that era, it was commented out in the upstream tarball.
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
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.
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.
