Description whampton 2001-02-25 11:38:30 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.0 i686)

/etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia start does not start cardmgr.  I tried 3 PCMCIA
NICS and none of them worked.  A build of 2.4.2 did work

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install RH 7.1 beta with laptop configuration
2. use linuxconf to setup eth0:
3. /etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia start
4. manual start of /sbin/cardmgr

Actual Results:  no PCMCIA operation

Expected Results:  1.  PCMCIA operation would be enabled with a laptop
2.  /etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia start would start cardmgr

I built 2.4.2 with PCMCIA support.  Following a reboot and manual start of
PCMCIA now works. However, I am now having problems with name

Could you try the Wolverine bootdisks instead? These should support PCMCIA
a LOT better.
Comment 2 whampton 2001-02-26 08:27:24 EST
I'll try the Wolverine discs as soon as I get them downloaded.  Thanks.

We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.
