Similar to bug #22610, but we want to track separtely as symptoms are
different. Inspiron 8000, cdrom install. During initial CDRom install,
when it tries to load card services you get the beeps & then the system
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Gold release
I'm not aware that we have an i800 for testing. I could be uninformed,
We're working on general PCMCIA/cardbus issues, but if this is
something specific, we may need hardware for testing.
sorry.... fat fingers in the summary. System is an i8000, though you may not
have that hardware either. If not, we can test the general PCMCIA/cardbus
issues you are working and see if it resolves it. If you require any further
troubleshooting/details on our part let us know.
Is this an "install using PCMCIA cdrom-drive" or a normal install with pcmcia
present but not used ?
Normal install - pcmcia present but not used
Tried new pcmcia images (see bug#23820)from
System still hangs
I don't have pcmcia hardware that exibits the hang, but I have more reports of
on this hardware you must remove the 0x800-0x8ff range from the port section of
verified that 2.4.0-0.99.24 does not lock up when this io range is removed from
You can test installs on this platform by loading the installer with "linux
nopcmcia" by the way.
Should be fixed now. Can we make a new set of boot/install images to verify
verified on the i8000 here.
