Description of problem:
I have installed FC5 on my Compaq v2630us Laptop. I have always used compaq'a as
they work easily with Fedora until now. I have a two fold problem.  First my
PCMCIA slot does not work. I have tried adding the line pci=assign-busses and
pci=routeirq and no joy. I also have updated to the latest PCMCIAutils package
and still nothing.  Secondly my memory card reader isn't working either.  On the
attached lspci text it's the flashMedia controller.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
After 3 fresh installs it happens everytime.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install OS
2.Insert PCMCIA card dlink DWL-G650
3.lspci and it's not there.
Actual results:

Expected results:
should work, works in FC4

Additional info: I have searched the internet and Fedora wiki's for info and I
am out of ideas.  The PCMCIA works in SuSe 10 but not the memory card reader. 
Although I can't stand SUSE 10 and really want to work in FC5.

For my DWL-G650, I have to compile the madwifi drivers seperatly.
Comment 3 jack 2006-05-02 07:19:16 EDT
Yes I know how to compile the drivers for madwifi.  I would do just that too, if
my card was even seen in PCMCIA slot. There is power in the PCMCIA slot but
that's all.
