Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 5852
PCMCIA.IMG won't find pcmcia ethernetcard
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
I am trying to do an FTP install using a Linksys pcmcia
ethernet card (NE2000 compatible). Booting of the pcmcia.img
disk proceeds up to the point where you choose the
installation type. I can only choose an installation from
hard disk; no FTP or HTTP installs.
ctrl+alt+f3 gives me:
* in startPcmcia()
* pcmcia probe returned: |PCI bridge probe: not found.
Intel PCIC probe: not found.
Databook TCIC-2 probe: not found.|
* no pcic controller found
* probing buses
* finished bus probing
* found nothing
So the 6.1 installer doesn't find my pcmcia card. This
pcmcia card gave me no problems whatsoever with the
bootnet.img and pcmcia.img disk when I installed 6.0.
Same problem on a DELL Latitude LM-133 with a Megahertz PCMCIA card
Oct 20, 1999. Note that this machine worked fine with RH5.2 on it.
This issue has been assigned to a developer for further action.

I have the same problem with my no-name laptop. RH6.0 bootnet.img detects my
pcmcia device (it displays:
pcmcia probe returned: i82365
pcmcia pcic type: i82365
) while bootnet.img from RH6.1 (I tried original & update 1999_3A044) says:
finished bus probing
Seems like a new detection code is worse than the old one.
I can report the same problem on my Micron Millennia Transport, which has been
running Redhat releases since before 4.0. I wonder if PCMCIA network install
works for anyone anywhere.
I can report same problem with bootnet-RHEA-1999_3A044.img and
pcmcia-RHEA-1999_3A044.img on Dell Inspiron 7500 with Dell OEM 3Com 3CCFE575CT-D
I can report the same problem on my Micron Millennia Transport using a 3COm
3c589D . Geshh one problem after another with the 6.1 release.
Have you tried 6.2?
