Description of problem:
Apologies for being a little vague, I'm just finding my way around
So: Sony vaio using a cheapo Belkin 54G card. All up & running OK
using ndiswrapper & the W2000 driver. Pulled down the latest kernel
patch last night via up2date, all good. Rebooted into the new kernel
today & couldn't bring up my card. After a bit of cardctl
eject/insert, looked at dmesg (see link). CS appears to be unable to
see any higher memory. No other ill effects (not obvious anyway), so
I'm going to assume the issue belongs to pcmcia-cs :-)
In case it helps:
Laptop=sony vaio pcg-f707 (UK variant of the US PC-707 I beleive)
00:0c.0 CardBus bridge: Ricoh Co Ltd RL5c478 (rev 80)
00:0c.1 CardBus bridge: Ricoh Co Ltd RL5c478 (rev 80)
02:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM94306 802.11g (rev 03)
If there's anything else I can provide, let me know. also quite
possible I've made an arse of something, like I say I'm new 'round here.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
on a sony vaio with ricoh card controller and belkin/broadcom 54g card
Actual Results: backed out, all ok. resumed new kernel, all bad...
Expected Results: network should have come up...
I had a similar problem when updating to the new kernel. I'm using a
TI cardbus controller on a Thinkpad 600E. My Belkin 100baseT cardbus
ethernet card no longer fucntions after upgrading to 2.6.10-1.12_fc2.
It is using the 8139too driver.
The primary symptom is a number of "send failed" errors in dmesg when
trying to acquire DHCP. Statically assigning the address yields no
I back out that RPM in single user mode, and reboot into 2.6.8, and
the problem goes away. 2.6.10-1.8_fc2 has no problems however, just
Also of note, I'm running the same pcmcia-cs RPM the original poster
is, and I had no need to roll that back, only the kernel.
According to the sourceforge homepage for pcmcia-cs, there's an update
(pcmcia-cs-3.2.8) released about 5 months ago
(http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=2405). I'm on
call this weekend but if it's quiet I'll try updating & see what happens.
