Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 125250
pcmcia should be invoked before networking in /etc/rcX.d
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:44 EST
Description of problem:
network connection fails on bootup on laptops with pcmcia network card
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot fedora core 2
2. network connection fails because networking gets started before
network connection down
start pcmcia, then networking
Here's what I did to solve this problem:
Change the line
# chkconfig: 2345 24 96
in /etc/init.d/pcmcia to
# chkconfig: 2345 09 96
And then run:
chkconfig --level 2345 pcmcia reset
network starts at 10, so this makes pcmcia start immediately prior to
it. Changing pcmcia from 24 to 9 seems to have caused no additional
problems for me.
This is been a bug on FC1, RH 9 and RH 8 too.

This really isn't a bug. Set your ifcfg-eth0/1/whatever to ONBOOT=no
for your pcmcia device. When pcmcia starts, it will discover the
device and start it at that point and everything continues normally.
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
It is fine in Fedora Core 3 now.
