Description of problem:
card service modul for the AVM Fritz!PCMCIA ISDN card is missing, but
hisax support is enabled
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install a AVM Fritz!PCMCIA ISDN card
2. Watch the messages in /var/log/messages from the card manager
We (Red Hat) really need to fix this defect before next release.
Hmm all I've been able to find is other people mentioning the driver....
No driver code itself. Do you have any idea where it might be hiding ?
There is a patch for the pcmcia-cs package available to add support for the
Fritz!PCMCIA card at http://www.wimmer-net.de/avm-pcmcia/
Please have a look at the README at http://www.wimmer-net.de/avm-pcmcia/README
Thanks for the URL.
It seems that at least the driver for your card is already included, but with
a different name (sigh :)
Would you mind replacing "avma1_cs" with "avm_a1p" in your /etc/pcmcia config
files and see if that works ? If it does, I'll fix the config file for the next
build; if it doesn't, well I'll figure something else.
I had the same problem last weekend, however with RedHat 7.1. My understanding
is: Package kernel-pcmcia-cs already contains everything that is required and
don't needs a patch. The kernel itself it missing a module.
Module avm_a1p, which is linked into module hisax, didn't help on my system.
In Message http://uwsg.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0103.1/0957.html, an
is included, that worked immediately on my system.
It provides the module avma1_cs that is referenced by kernel-pcmcia-cs.
Renaming the entries /etc/pcmcia/config from "avma1_cs" to "avm_a1p" doesn4t
solve the problem. The module "avm_a1p" is only the hisax code for accessing the
registers on the ISDN controller chip. But to make this card work you also need
the activation and IRQ/port setup code from the avma1_cs card service module.
The patch mentioned in the comment from email@example.com seems to be the same
as the one in my last comment.
Added this module; should be in kernels with version 2.4.7-2.5 or later, which
should appear in rawhide sometime later this week / early next week.
Thanks for the help on this one!
(please reopen the bug if this kernel doesn't make it work for you please)
I just installed kernel 2.4.7-2.9 from rawhide and the card now works as
