Description of problem:
When I insert the PCMCIA interface card of the Sony PCGA-CD51/A CD-ROM
drive into my Sony VAIO laptop (PCG-Z600LEK), the cs driver fails to
load the appropriate ide driver with the message:
cs: memory probe 0xa0000000-0xa0ffffff: clean.
ide-cs: GetNextTuple: No more items
The CD-ROM drive usually appears as hde on previous Linux kernels.
Current kernel is 2.4.22-1.2115.nptl.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert CD-ROM PCMCIA interface card into slot
2. Check dmesg
Actual Results: Error message: ide-cs: GetNextTuple: No more items
Drive not visible.
Expected Results: Driver loads, CD-ROM becomes either /dev/hdc or
/dev/hde and becomes usable.
Worked on RedHat Linux 9.
save thing still happens at with core 3, on a sony pcg-n505vx, cd51 cdrom.
used to work on all previous RedHat verseions. Sometimes had to tinker
with the interrupts in pcmcia.config
if you edit /etc/pcmcia/config.opts and remove the lines for the Radeon IGP
workaround, does it work ?
*** Bug 119659 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
fwiw I just tried this on a sony vaio z505ls with the cd51 drive and commenting
out the line suggested by Dave Jones worked. The cd drive mounted as /dev/hde.
No response from reporter to request for a year.
FC3 is the responsibility of Fedora Legacy, and this is not a security issue.
If it can be reproduced on FC4 or FC5, please reopen.
Note that pcmcia-cs has been replaced by pcmciautils in FC5.
