Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 47245
Version 3.1.24 too old
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:34:26 EDT
Description of Problem: This is a request for updated rpms for
kernel-pcmcia-cs. There have been 3 releases since 3.1.24 and aside from
bugfixes, cards which were not previously supported are.
How Reproducible: Each time!
Steps to Reproduce:
1. rpm -q kernel-pcmcia-cs
We don't actually use the drivers from the pcmcia-cs package,
just the cardmgr program.
Which card are you missing a driver for ?
I am using a Linksys Etherfast PCMPC100 v3 which does not work. Here is the
relevant snippet from /var/log/messages:
Jul 7 10:04:13 bombay cardmgr: initializing socket 0
Jul 7 10:04:13 bombay cardmgr: socket 0: NE2000 Compatible Ethernet
Jul 7 10:04:13 bombay kernel: cs: memory probe 0xa0000000-0xa0ffffff: clean.
Jul 7 10:04:13 bombay cardmgr: executing: 'modprobe 8390'
Jul 7 10:04:14 bombay cardmgr: executing: 'modprobe pcnet_cs'
Jul 7 10:04:14 bombay kernel: eth0: pcnet_reset_8390() did not complete.
Jul 7 10:04:14 bombay kernel: pcnet_cs: sorry, the AX88190 chipset is not
Jul 7 10:04:14 bombay kernel: pcnet_cs: unable to read hardware net address for
io base 0x300
Jul 7 10:04:14 bombay cardmgr: get dev info on socket 0 failed: No such device
When I looked at the release notes for pcmcia-cs at the URL above, I saw that
the AX88190 is now supported (axnet_cs).
I would also be very interested in an rpm for a more recent version of kernel-
pcmcia-cs. I am having problems with the PCMCIA card controller driver
crashing on my Toshiba Satellite 2060CDS (which has a ToPIC97 card). I notice
that one of the more recent versions of the PCMCIA card services included bug
fixes for the ToPIC cards. I will submit my own bug report within a week or so.
This should be better these days.
