Description of problem:
updated kernel to 2.4.3-12, restarted system. downloaded David's pcmcia-cs
package with latest version (3.1.27), if I disable PCMCIA support inside
the kernel and then build the kernel and then try to build the pcmcia
package, I get compile errors for the cs.c module.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.update to 2.4.3-12
2.disable kernel-PCMCIA support
3.build the kernel
4.try to build the pcmcia-cs package

Expected Results:  it worked fine with 2.4.2 kernel

Why would you want to use the pcmcia-cs package ?
And which fails ? the kernel or pcmcia-cs ?
Comment 2 Ronny Bremer 2001-07-06 11:22:00 EDT
the file which fails is "cs.c" from the pcmcia-cs package.

The reason why I need that package is the fact, that the kernel pcmcia support
still has problems with Xircom credit card adapters, while David's package has
been prooven to be very stable in that case.

I am looking forward to get 2.4.6 from Redhat, b/c there have been some changes
to that code base which could make the pcmcia-cs package obsolete for me.
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2001-07-06 11:24:08 EDT
I'm very interested to hear about any problems about the xircom cardbus
driver, as I wrote the one in 2.4.2-2 and 2.4.3-12. What sort of problem
do you have with xircom_cb.o ?
Comment 4 Ronny Bremer 2001-07-06 11:56:22 EDT
now thats cool :)

I can get my xircom card to work, however, after a couple of hours usage it
seems to lock up. No traffic can pass in or out anymore while the rest of the
system is still usable.

I need to reboot, b/c to even removing the card and re-inserting it does help.

I talked to David about this problem and he supected it inside the cardservices
implementation of 2.4. When I am using the xircom_cs driver from David's package
(including the external pcmcia support of course) I can use my ethernet card for
days without any problems.
