Description Tim Waugh 2000-12-21 07:29:29 EST
Although the installer asked me whether or not I wanted to use DHCP (I do),
the running kernel thinks that it's 'anonymous memory'.
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2000-12-21 07:49:54 EST
More info: It's got the following modules loaded:


/var/run/stab contains:

Socket 0: Anonymous Memory
Socket 1: Anonymous Memory

(one is a Xircom credit card modem, the other a Xircom credit card Ethernet

When I manually load xirc2ps_cs, it just logs:

xirc2ps_cs.c 1.31 1998/12/09 19:32:55 (dd9jn+kvh)

and ifconfig eth0 <anything> fails with 'No such device'.

Even stranger: this _works_ when I boot with 'linux rescue', and the xirc2ps_cs
module is loaded automatically.
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2000-12-21 11:24:13 EST
Now I've tried:

2.4.0-0.43.6BOOT (in rescue environment): works fine
2.4.0-0.43.6: doesn't work (anonymous memory)
2.4.0-0.43.9: doesn't work (anonymous memory)
2.4.0-test13-pre3: doesn't work (RequestIRQ failed)
2.4.0-test13pre3-ac3: doesn't work (RequestIRQ failed)
2.2.17-9: doesn't work (RequestIRQ failed)
2.2.16-22xirchangfix (2.2.16-22 plus an unrelated one-line fix I made): works
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2000-12-21 14:09:31 EST
Installed pcmcia-cs-3.1.23, and now it works.
Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2001-01-19 02:17:12 EST
OK, marking fixed in rawhide (rawhide contains 3.1.23).
