Description of problem:

Both system work with kernels upto kernel-smp-2.6.6-*

the system hangs starting pcmcia, 
also eth0 interface is not started.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

If I configure 
chkconfig pcmcia off

then the system hangs in cups .
Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2004-09-06 09:41:57 EDT
smells like broken irq routing....
Comment 3 Winfrid Tschiedel 2004-09-15 06:30:42 EDT
I could solve the problem with a hardware change -
I replaced the SCSI backplane (beta level) with
a SCSI backplane (silver level) and did also a firmware update 
for the backplane.

I think, that we can close this issue now.

Take care,

thanks for confirming that this is fixed.
however please in the future consider mentioning the beta state of the
hardware/firmware in the original report. Thanks.
