Description abed 1999-05-19 15:25:52 UTC
I cannot get my pcmcia card to work with the RH 6.0. I have
the 3com etherlink III combo card. The card was working fine
with RH5.2. Now when I installed the kernel that came with
RH 6.0 the card beeps once and nothing happens after that.
Some time later (after gdm starts) another low pitch tone is
generated. In /var/log/messages I noticed some error
messages that said some thing like - cardmgr cannot
determine the ip address of eth0. I checked my resolv.conf
and all seems ok.

I compiled the kernel. Then from the
/usr/src/linux/pcmcia-3.0.9 directory I did make config,
make all I got the following error message:

 no rule to make
/usr/src/linux/include/linux/modules/nls_cp437.ver needed by

(This use to work with RH5.2 also).

Note the above file (nls_cp437.ver) is not available in my
system. Any comments would be appreciated.

The "no rule to make..." error you should be able to fix by going
into the kernel source and running "make depend"

Can you include the exact error messages that you got?  The
"something like" doesn't pinpoint what's going on.
