Xircom credit card Ethernet card doesn't work
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:30:17 EDT
Although the installer asked me whether or not I wanted to use DHCP (I do),
the running kernel thinks that it's 'anonymous memory'.
More info: It's got the following modules loaded:
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.
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
Installed pcmcia-cs-3.1.23, and now it works.
OK, marking fixed in rawhide (rawhide contains 3.1.23).
