Description of problem:
Presario 2110US laptop. Fedora 1.92 test3 completely freezes when
used with orinoco 802.11 pcmcia card. Three cases: 1. card installed
before booting, freezes just after pcmcia starts. Upper right says it
is starting power services. Case 2: booted without card installed.
Freezes as soon as card in inserted. Case 3: booted without card
installed. Turn pcmcia service off. Insert card OK. Freezes when
pcmcia services restarted. Nothing works to restore the pc except
holding the power switch down to turn it off. Tried several cards
(same type) with same results. Previously had same results with
Fedora 1. Reformated drive before loading test3.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fedora 1.92 test3
Steps to Reproduce:
1.insert orionco pcmcia card
2.boot pc with fedora 1.92 test3
Actual Results: completely freezes. Have to power off
Expected Results: Should have booted to full system with 802.11 card
Update: I was able to get the card working!! In the config.opts file
in the /etc/pcmcia directory -- I had to exclude most of the IRQs.
Specifically, I excluded IRQ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 10, 11, 12. I did
not exclude 8, 9, 13, 14, 15. Everything seemed to work normally.
This is NOT the IRQ exclusion list in the original config.opts file.
It would be better if a method could be automatically invoked or if
not, at least manually run and observed to correctly identify
interrupts that must be excluded. All memory and port statements in
the file were left as-is.
any better with fc3 and updates ?
Closing per lack of response to previous request for information. Note that FC3
and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy for security fixes only. Please install
a still supported version and retest. If it still occurs on FC5 or FC6,
please reopen and assign to the correct version. Otherwise, if this a security
issue, please change the product to Fedora Legacy. Thanks, and we are sorry
that we did not get to this bug earlier.
