Trying to install after booting from CD freezes on an Inspiron 8000 at
"Initializing PC Card Devices".  Attempting to install via floppy + cd
works.  After install is complete a hard freeze occurs when trying to start
pcmcia devices.  No errors shown in the syslog.  Even attempted
pcmcia-3.1.24 compiling from source which admittedly doesnt follow the
redhat configuration format with still no success.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.tried to reinstall from different versions of redhat to no avail	
2.installed from floppy which worked 
3.instaqlled a different pcmcia version

Expected Results:  pcmcia should work or at least deliver an error and not
hard freeze the laptop

pcmcia that comes with 7.1B freezes
3.1.24 from source freezes
7.0 freezes 

I dont see a pcmcia component sorry wireless guy .. you will have to
reassign this one.

Matt, what's the magic config settings?
Comment 2 Glen Foster 2001-02-21 15:34:59 EST
We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2001-02-22 04:46:45 EST
Should be fixed in newer kernel-pcmcia-cs rpms.
