Description Johnray Fuller 2001-05-02 19:12:55 UTC
I just recieved a call from someone installing 7.1 on a P150 machine w/ 64
M RAM and an Asus P55T2P4 motherboard (I believe this uses the Intel 43hx
chipset). It is a desktop with no PC card devices (this becomes important
later ;-)

Anyway, when he tries to boot the installer, it loads /sbin/loader the
a blue screen appears (as if loading an aic7xxx driver) and it says:

"Intitializing PC Card Devices"

Sounds like his broken CDROM drive doesn't like DMA.
Can you phone him back and ask him to try ide=nodma ?

Looks like a dupe of bug #37216.  Maybe this should be an anacona bug after all.
 I think the install will work if you say 'linux nopcmcia' at the bootup screen.
 This doesn't explain why we're finding devices that aren't there.  If you can
get the system installed, can you run '/sbin/probe' and see what that says?
