Description Matt Vestal 2001-11-13 16:22:50 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.7-10 i586)

Description of problem:
error message in /var/log/messages:
 test cardmgr[2651]: config error, file './config.opts' line 8: no function

The last device listed in the /etc/pcmcia/config file has no bind
associated with it, causing the cardmgr to not read config.opts.  The
3.1.24 version has the line:
bind "serial_cb"
However, adding that line results in other errors.  Commenting out boh
lines for the Xircom RBM56G Modem is the easiest fix.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.rpm -i kernel-pcmcia-cs-3.1.27-10.i386.rpm
2.edit /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia for "PCMCIA=yes" and "PCIC=i82365"
3./etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia start - error shows in /var/log/messages

Actual Results:   test cardmgr[2651]: config error, file './config.opts'
line 8: no function bindings

In /var/log/messages.  Settings in /etc/pcmcia/config.opts are ignored

Expected Results:  /etc/pcmcia/config.opts should've been read and

Comment 1 Matt Vestal 2001-11-13 16:56:04 UTC
I indicated that the /etc/pcmcia/config.opts file is not read if the two lines
are not commented out.  I was wrong about that.  The ISA IRQs shown in
/var/log/messages when the PCMCIA service is started do not reflect the excluded
IRQs from /etc/pcmcia/config.opts, and thus made me think that the file was be
skipped over.

There is, however, still a problem with the /etc/pcmcia/config file, though it
is very minor.
