Same behavior on my Dell Inspiron 7500 PIII-700, 512MB RAM, Sony
PCWA-C150S 802.11b card and Xircom CBE2-100 10/100 Ethernet.

This is with a fresh install of FC2T3 from DVD.

Comment 2 Antti Markus 2004-05-10 09:13:06 UTC
What happens if you execute /sbin/modprobe yenta_socket before
inserting PCMCIA card?

Comment 3 Timothy Sandel 2004-05-10 19:12:14 UTC
I have the same problem with Cisco 350.  If I modprobe yenta_socket
and restart pcmcia service I can get the card to work.  I have a
Winbook X4 with a P4 1.8 and 256mb ram.

Comment 4 Jim Nuth 2004-05-10 20:02:23 UTC
From # 
/sbin/modprobe yenta_socket  then
service pcmcia restart

reports cardmgr: watching 2 sockets
inserting either card and I get lights and functioning cards.

Thanks

Jim

Had the problem with an orinoco card in a Dell 4150.

/sbin/rmmod orinoco_cs
/sbin/rmmod ds
/etc/init.d/pcmica restart

and cardmgr seems to work..

Setup: Linksys card in a Toshiba Tecra 8100.

The "modprobe yenta_socket; service pcmcia restart" steps work for me

To make this permanent, I followed the instructions to reorder 
S10network in

I have that problem with Fedora 2 on a Dell Laptop, with or 
without a single ELSA ISDN card. Actually, the ELSA used to
work!! (But see bug 125135 for erratic behaviour of that card
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=125135)

Yesterday Fedora decided to no longer find any sockets. 
Mystifying. Things work well under Windows. Tried to load/unload
the kernel modules (elsa, ds, pcmcia) to no avail. cardmgr -v does
not give any additional information. 

Will try the yenta_socket (what the heck is THAT?) thing and report
now..

Comment 8 David Tonhofer 2004-06-17 20:32:24 UTC
Yup, works. The question is: what makes Linux load (or not?)
yenta_socket? And would it change?
