We (Red Hat) really need to fix this defect before next release.

Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2001-08-15 21:12:36 UTC
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 ?

Comment 3 Bernd Bartmann 2001-08-16 08:28:11 UTC
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
attachment http://uwsg.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0103.1/att-0957/01-avmdiff
is included, that worked immediately on my system.

It provides the module avma1_cs that is referenced by kernel-pcmcia-cs.

Comment 6 Bernd Bartmann 2001-08-16 16:32:49 UTC
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 kai.engert@gmx.de seems to be the same
as the one in my last comment.

Comment 7 Arjan van de Ven 2001-08-20 12:16:33 UTC
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)

Comment 8 Bernd Bartmann 2001-08-28 09:37:37 UTC
I just installed kernel 2.4.7-2.9 from rawhide and the card now works as
