Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 163
5.2 installer does not detect pcmcia card 3c589
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:48 EDT
The Redhat 5.2 installer disks do not detect a pcmcia
HOWEVER, the RH 5.1 did.
Which means that no net install is possible while
using this card (unless I use the RH5.1 installer but
that is a little bit awkward).
This might be related to bug #104?
We will try to get a 3c589D card into the lab. We only have a 3c589B
right now and it works fine.
Toshiba Satellite 320 CDS
CPU:P233MMX RAM:32MB HD:EIDE-4.1GB CD:ATAPI-24X
As a side note, Suse 5.3 Installer does not detected the PCIC
(but RH does).
The installation seems to work fine on the Toshiba Satellite 4000 CDS
which should have the exact same hardware except for PII233.
We will still try to get the pcmcia card into the test lab for testing
but it is an older model that will prove to be difficult to find and
may have to be donated to us by some caring individual. Until then
please submit your problem to our mailing lists to see if anyone else
has encountered this and if they have a solution that we can work
