pcmcia script contains errors
Last modified: 2005-10-31 17:00:50 EST
Description of problem:
The pcmcia script contains errors that prevent it from loading
appropriate pcmcia devices.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: 100%
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a network card such as the Belkin 802.11b wireless card.
2. Compile the driver software.
3. Errors occur on every subsequent boot of the machine.
System is unable to locate ds, yenta_socket and pcmcia_core.
Expected result is no error message and successful load of network card.
The modprobe commands (lines 107-109 and 111-113) of the script
/etc/init.d/pcmcia are not supposed to have '.o' suffices. Delete the
'.o' suffices and the script will work properly.
I have modified the script on my machine and confirmed that it works.
I have also contacted the author of the script (David Hinds) and
confirmed that this is a bug.
David said that this is an error in the script as provided with the RH
distribution. That is, David says that the script distributed by RH
is inconsistent with the script he provided to RH.
Created attachment 97081 [details]
Modified script with corrections to eliminate bug.
This is fixed in current releases.
