Description of problem:
I fixed Orinoco card to use orinoco_cs driver (reported in bug 62317). When the
laptop (IBM 390e) reboot, the eth0 startup and defered until pcmcia starts, but
eth0 is not up after the system startup finished

I have to add ifup eth0 in /etc/rc.local to fix the problem. 

This didn't happen to other pcmcia NIC (I'm using a linksys ec2t)

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. load a Orinoco card on a laptop
2. reboot the laptop

Actual Results:  The eth0 startup is deferred, which should be done by pcmcia
later (as my linksys card), but the card was not start during pcmcia startup

Expected Results:  eth0 using orinoco card should startup, just like other
pcmcia NIC

I just have a quick test using my Linksys ec2t card. The same problem occurred.
Eth0 didn't come up during bootup, ifup eth0 is needed to bring up the card
afterward. I think the problem is more general on pcmcia NICs. Note, the
function works on RH 7.2 w/ the same h/w... maybe I shouldn't have try skipjack. 8)

Believe it or not but that last thing is a grep bug !
install the rawhide grep and it works again ;)
Comment 3 Edmond Hui 2002-03-29 14:12:10 EST
Confirmd. grep 2.5.1 from rawhide fixed the problem. Both orinoco and linksys
card bring up properly now.

Great work!

I'll let you closed the case.
