Description of problem:
On start up pcmcia generates an error message when using the kernel from updates-testing(2.6.13-1.1524_FC4). Booting into the older kernel sees normal startup for pcmcia.

[root@eyrie ~]# uname -r
[root@eyrie ~]# dmesg -c >> /dev/null
[root@eyrie ~]# service pcmcia restart
Shutting down PCMCIA services: done.

fixed for me with 2.6.13-1.1526_FC4

Comment 2 Pete Zaitcev 2005-09-29 18:19:29 UTC
Robert? Does it work now?

Comment 3 Walter Neumann 2005-09-30 01:13:30 UTC
Same problem with 2.6.13-1.1524_FC4 also fixed for me in 2.6.13-1.1526_FC4

Comment 4 Robert Bertram 2005-09-30 09:44:13 UTC
Sorry, had some family problems and forgot about this.

Looks good to me as well.

Comment 5 James Ettle 2005-10-01 10:11:29 UTC
I still see something similar in 2.6.13-1.1526_FC4. At boot, when the cardmgr
service starts, it prints a message to the effect of "could not reserve
resources 0xa0000000 - 0xa0ffffff: input/output error" (apologies for not having
the exact text). It doesn't show up if I subsequently restart the pcmcia
service. I don't know if this affects anything since I have no PCMCIA devices
with which to test.

Comment 8 Walter Neumann 2005-10-01 17:30:23 UTC
I too see problems 2.6.13-1.1526_FC4 that were not in 2.6.12:

I see no log errors, but my pcmcia wireless card is only recognised on every
second insertion. First, third, fifth etc insertions do not start up the card
and generate nothing in the logs (this did not happen with older kernels). Card
starts  OK if present on boot, but then fails to start if removed and
reinserted, and then on every second try after that.
