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
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.
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:
should be enough to get it working, no need for cardmgr to be running.
Please reopen this bug if the propsed fix doesn't work for you.
