Description scott schmidt 2001-01-04 17:37:15 UTC
Hardware: Dell Latitude C800

Symptons: Install Linux 7.0 on a clean drive. Boot Linux in Interactive 
Mode, hitting "Y" for each service. After hitting "Y" for pcmcia, I 
receive screens of trace code, ending in:
   Code: 89 02 85 c0 74 03 89 50 04 b8 01 00 00 00 eb 03 90 31 c0 c7
   Aiee, killing interrupt handler
   Kernel panic: Attempted to kill the idle task
   In interrupt handler - not syncing

What I have tried:
1) move pcmcia service first, before kudzu.
   This started the pcmcia service, but received error, to wit:
     cardmgr watching two sockets
   Maching then froze at the prompt to start Kudzu service with no other 

Other information:
1) I have a 6.2 linux distro on a another drive that i can swap into this 
machine and the pcmcia services works fine. It is just 7.0 that steps on 
the pcmcia service

2) I have a docking station on this machine with an ethernet port that 
works fine if I step past (saying "N") to the pcmcia service prompt on 

Any help would be greatly appreciated..

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/
