Description James Turner 2004-07-11 15:10:49 UTC
Description of problem:

When executing "/etc/init.d/pcmcia stop", the yenta_socket (etc.) 
module does not get unloaded, apparently due to a typo. My IBM T22 
laptop won't go into suspend with this module loaded, so I have to 
do "rmmod yenta_socket" manually as root before suspend will work, 
even though I listed pcmcia as a service to be restarted by apmd 
in /etc/sysconfig/apmd.

The problem is in the statement:

  if grep -q "ds  " /proc/modules ; then

The grep never matches because there are 2 spaces after "ds", whereas 
there is only one space after "ds" in /proc/modules.

If I edit the pcmcia script to remove the extra space from the
first grep argument (ie. "ds "), then "/etc/init.d/pcmcia stop" now 
works correctly and my laptop is put into suspend automatically by 
apmd when I close the lid.

(By the way, ACPI suspend doesn't work for me on this machine)

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


How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. su
2. /etc/init.d/pcmcia stop
3. /sbin/lsmod
Actual results:
The modules "yenta_socket" and "ds" are still loaded.

Expected results:
The modules should have been unloaded.

Additional info:
I'm running Fedora Core 2 final with kernel 2.6.5 on an IBM Thinkpad 
T22 laptop with a Pentium III processor (just in case 
the /proc/modules format varies between kernels or systems...).

Please try pcmcia-cs-3.2.7- in FC2 test updates.

Thanks for the fix. Unfortunately my laptop's motherboard died just
days before your reply(!), so I can't try out the update on the
original computer... The problem should be generic enough to test on
another machine though(?) - when my new T42 laptop arrives, I'll
install FC3 and check that it's now OK.

Closing as fixed in the update.
