Description Virtual Janitor 1999-10-22 18:23:21 UTC
The pcmcia-RHEA-1999:044.img does not recognize any pcmcia
devices in my laptops and hangs.  After uncompresing, and
mounting a loopback of the pcmcia and initrd.img I noticed
there is no /etc/pcmcia directory at all.  I was hoping to
get the kickstart fixes so I could do a nfs kickstart
install using the pcmcia devices.  It looks like all three
images are really the same.

8f68c18267b673950835ac34508df1c6 bootnet-RHEA-1999:044.img
8f68c18267b673950835ac34508df1c6 pcmcia-RHEA-1999:044.img

As a side note:
I was able to fix the install hangs on 5.2 and 6.0 pcmcia
image installs by uncommenting the "#exclude irq 4" line in
/etc/pcmcia/config.opts in the "initrd.img". This was
evidently causing a unresolvable interrupt conflict.
