Description Bill Crawford 2002-04-02 22:55:54 EST
Description of Problem:
Booted from "bootnet.img" on a HP Brio, started an FTP install.  Default install
type highlighted was "laptop" despite this being very much not a laptop; also,
although I selected "custom" install, deselected all the comps and added about
half a dozen server-type packages (squid, junkbuster, bind, caching-nameserver,
openssh etc) when I rebooted apmd was running (not desirable or necessary -- why
was it even installed?)
Ran into another bug when trying to erase the apmd package, will log that
Comment 1 Michael Fulbright 2002-04-03 15:00:52 EST
Is there a pcmcia controller in the system.
Comment 2 Bill Crawford 2002-04-03 19:53:07 EST
No, but there is an ACPI controller listed amongst the PCI devices.  So,
/proc/apm exists; is that what you look for?

Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2002-04-10 16:28:08 EDT
Can you run the problem called 'probe' from the kernel-pcmcia-cs package and
attach the output?  We default to 'laptop' if we detect a pcmcia controller
chipset present.
Comment 5 Bill Crawford 2002-04-10 18:50:29 EDT
[root@staryu root]# /sbin/probe
PCI bridge probe: not found.
Intel PCIC probe: not found.
Databook TCIC-2 probe:   at 0x240: not found.

I take it there's another package I need to install?
Comment 6 Michael Fulbright 2002-04-11 14:36:10 EDT
No thats ok.

Could you boot the installer, and once you get to the screen where 'Laptop' is
selected, press cntl-alt-f2 to go to VC2.

Then try the following at the commandline:

import kudzu
print kudzu.probe(kudzu.CLASS_SOCKET, kudzu.BUS_PCI, 0)

and send me the output.

Then hit cntl-d, then run the 'probe' command and send me the output.

These are the two tests we do to see if you have pcmcia in your system,
Comment 7 Bill Crawford 2002-04-11 16:15:00 EDT
Will do.  Have to get the machine out from the cupboard under the stairs first
Comment 8 Michael Fulbright 2002-04-15 18:38:36 EDT
