Description of problem:
As in bug 121742, on Fedora Core 2 installed on Dell Inspiron 8200 the
kernel module yenta_socket isn't loaded and therefore my PCMCIA
devices including my builtin wireless NIC don't work.

All other required modules are loaded such as ds and pcmcia_core. The
drivers for my wireless card are loaded as well hermes,orinoco, and

This is because anaconda stuck a "alias eth1 orinoco_cs" in my

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Core 2
2. Start it


Actual Results:  Cardmgr[2480]: No sockects found

Expected Results:  Load kernel module yenta_socket 

Additional info:

The current work around is the following:

modprobe yenta_socket
/etc/init.d/pcmcia restart

Just loaded FC2 (final) and have the same/similar problem. 
I have a Generic i82365-compatible PCMCIA controller" and a wireless 
PCMCIA orinoco card. At PCMCIA start-up I get the no sockets found 
error too.  
If I manually try: 
 modprobe i82365 
 service pcmcia restart 
 service network restart 
it works fine. SO it looks as if it is not just related to

I'm having the same problem with my Compaq Presario 1930.  Cardmgr
couldn't find any sockets so my Xircom 10/100 card wouldn't work. 
loading yenta_socket and restarting Cardmgr caused it to find my two
sockets.  Then running kuduz found the NIC and I'm good to go.

BTW, this laptop worked fine with RH9 and FC1, but hasn't worked on
any of the FC2-testx series.

Comment 4 Alex Bibiano 2004-05-20 21:17:41 UTC
if I comment in the file /etc/modprobe.conf the orinoco_cs line, it
works OK.
