** I'm not sure if the Component is correct - actually it's a problem with 
the PCMCIA card - but I did not find a pcmcia component. I set the 
priority and the severity to high because I have to go back to the 
previous system if I don't get the card running - Thanks! **

I was runnning RedHat Linux 6.2 on an IBM Thinkpad 600 with an  PCMCIA IBM 
Token Ring card installed. The configuration used on RedHat 6.2 was simply 
the default /etc/pcmcia/config.opts with the module for ibmtr_cs 
activated. 

Since I upgraded from Redhat 6.2 to 7.0 (it does not mind if you run a 
scratch installation or an upgrade installation)the PCMCIA IBM Token Ring 
card does not work any more - I also tried differenct mmiobase and 
srambase settings. I get the following error messages when pcmcia is 
started in RedHat 7.0 in the /var/logs/messages:

=================


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install RedHat 7.0 on a ThinPad 600 with a IBM PCMCIA Token Ring Adapter
2.
3.
	

Actual Results:  The PC can't connect to the token ring LAN ..... so no 
cennection is possible.

Expected Results:  The PC should be able to connect to the token ring

To compare here are the /var/log/messges lines from the Redhat 6.2 system:

Comment 1 Hermann huebler 2001-09-20 14:13:04 EDT
Problem seems to be fixed by RedHat 7.1. With this version I was unable to
recreate the problem.
Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 2001-09-20 16:13:35 EDT
Thanks for letting us know.
