Description igb 1999-06-21 07:58:50 EDT
If an installation is done from a local CD, the resulting
machine doesn't have its PCMCIA stuff set up at all.
Most notably, the user is responsible for using /sbin/probe
-m
Comment 1 David Lawrence 1999-06-22 14:19:59 EDT
It seems like the install process was unable to find a pcmcia
controller chipset properly and did not set up
/etc/sysconfig/pcmcia correctly. One thing you could do is after
running the probe, using the information gathered and write the
/etc/sysconfig/pcmcia file by hand. The format is as follows:

PCMCIA=yes
PCIC=
PCIC_OPTS=
CORE_OPTS=

PCIC= can be set to either i82365 or TCIC depending on what probe
says.
the OPTS line can be left blank. When ever the machine is booted and
/etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia start is ran it will read the config info from
the above file.
