Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 6400
Failure to properly initialize PCMCIA network card in install
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
Machine: Toshiba Portege 7020CT
Network card: Xircom CE2, Linksys PCMPC100, (another card,
my co-worker took home)
Symptoms: card would appear to start, and
appropriately "blink" the link lights, however, seemed
unable to receive packets from the net (DHCP packets were
occasionally received by the server). The Linksys
generated "Lost Interrupt" errors.
Workaround: Hack the install floppy to add the following to
# bogus excludes for my Toshiba (Greg T.)
exclude irq 3
exclude irq 5
exclude irq 6
exclude irq 8
exclude irq 9
IRQs 4 & 7 were already excluded.
All cards worked fine after this change.
This issue has been assigned to a developer for further action.
Did you encounter the same problem with the 6.2 release?
Closed due to inactivity.
