Description Rodd Johnson 2001-05-01 14:24:26 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)

You have no entry for PCMCIA SCSI, SCSI, etc on Bugzilla.
When I went from 7.0 to 7.1, the ability to select an Adaptec 1480 PCMCIA 
SCSI adapter disappeared. Yet the help button in make xconfig still 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.run /usr/src/linux/make xconfig
2.select the SCSI button
3.select the PCMCIA button
4.Cry like a baby when Adaptec 1480 adapter refuses to appear

Actual Results:  Cant access my SCSI devices

Expected Results:  Used to work under 7.0 seemlessly, but now it doesn't 
work at all. Even resorted to a 7.0 install, then upgrade, which proceeded 
to break it.

Please help.

This is an unfortionate bug in the pcmcia-cs scripts. The module for this
device is now called "aic7xxx_mod". We've put a kernel-pcmcia-cs package with
this fix in rawhide and will make it available as an official errata as soon.
But you can of course also edit the /etc/pcmcia/config file directly.

Oh, and if you want to save a bit of memory:
modprobe yenta_socket
modprobe aic7xxx_mod

should be enough to get it working, no need for cardmgr to be running.
