Description Geoff Collis 2000-09-06 05:36:39 UTC
I installed RedHat 6.1 on a IBP thinkpad 240. To get my 3Com PCMCIA card to work I need to upgrade the kernel to 2.2.14-12. I installed  the 
new rpm's in two groups.... kernel-2.2.14-12.i386, kernel-pcmcia-2.2.14-12 and kernel-utils-2.2.14.i386. I boot the thinkpad from the new kernel, 
and tested the 3Com card and it works. I also want to get the modem, sound and USB working so I install the kernel source so I can rebuild it. I 
then installed kernel-headers-2.2.14-12, kernel-doc-2.2.14-12, kernel-ibcs-2.2.14-12 and kernel-source-2.2.14-12.

I can successfully build a new kernel and boot from it, but whenever I do "make modules" the pcmcia module does not get built ; the directory 
does not even exist after the build, and hence my 3Com PCMCIA network card does not work. I am obviously doing something wrong but what? 
I have tried make Xconfig serveral times, even manually editting the ".config" file, all fails..... I am a Senior UNIX SysAdmin by profession 
(specializing in Solaris and HP-UX) so I am usually very thorough and rigorous, so hopefully its nothing trvial I overlooked. I have 
tried searching various NewGroups and mailing lists but I cannot find anything that appears to be relevent. Suggestions?

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
