Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 190320
PCMCIA slot is not recognized
Last modified: 2008-05-06 11:52:07 EDT
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):
After 3 fresh installs it happens everytime.
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Insert PCMCIA card dlink DWL-G650
3.lspci and it's not there.
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.
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
