This is an installer bug I think

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2001-06-13 03:51:21 UTC
I don't think this is an installer bug.  Seems more like a driver bug.  I could
be wrong, though.  Maybe it's a kudzu problem, but almost surely not an
installer bug.

Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2001-06-13 08:55:29 UTC
Except that anaconda has the wrong cardmgr version for the kernel

Comment 4 Brent Fox 2001-06-13 14:54:30 UTC
You're right.  It's in the loader.

Comment 5 Brent Fox 2001-08-08 19:42:26 UTC
The Xircom card works in the latest internal build.

Comment 6 Igor 2001-10-31 11:47:29 UTC
RH 7.2 not recognize too.
HiNote has two PCMCIA bridges.
First detected bridge (external slots) is TI 1131. Module is yenta_socket.
Second not detected bridge (internal slots) is Cirrus PD672x. Module is i82365.

Comment 7 Brent Fox 2001-11-08 19:32:06 UTC
We don't have the hardware necessary to reproduce this bug.  The PCMCIA Xircom's
that we have seem to work, but we don't have any hardware with an internal
Xircom.  I will reopen this bug report if we can get the hardware necessary to
reproduce this behavior.
