Description Michael Sinz 2007-05-20 22:25:34 EDT
Description of problem:

The /etc/udev/rules.d/60-pcmcia.rules file has an incorrect syntax for the
modprobe rule.  It uses a "bare" $modalias rather than $env{MODALIAS}

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


How reproducible:

During boot you will see an error message about the unknown $modalias but only
if you have PCMCIA hardware.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Boot FC7 test 4 on a laptop
2.  Watch the udev service startup
Actual results:

Error message about the $modalias syntax

Expected results:

No error message and correct operation of modprobe for PCMCIA under udev

Additional info:

I believe the fix is rather simple - see attached patch.

Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 20:48:37 EDT
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.

Sorry I did not watch out for this issue.

I can say that the issue does not exist in Fedora 8 (at least not in the current
code base) and the last time I looked at Fedora 9 the issue did not occur.  I
did not check, at the time, if this bug was marked closed but somewhere this was
handled and no longer seems to be a problem.

Feel free to close out the issue as resolved - I just don't know where/when that
was done.  (Someone would need to go through the source control logs to find it)
