Description Eugene Kanter 2002-04-25 02:30:55 UTC
Description of Problem:

lspci:

00:04.0 PCMCIA bridge: Cirrus Logic CL 6729 (rev fe)
        Flags: stepping, slow devsel
        I/O ports at fcfc [size=4]

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

kernel-pcmcia-cs-3.1.27-14

How Reproducible:

always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot disks do not recognize PCMCIA, network install not possible.
2. install from CDROM, PCMCIA still not recognized.
3.

Red Hat 6.2 works with no problem at all.

Comment 2 Arjan van de Ven 2002-06-03 19:08:39 UTC
Is this a somewhat older laptop ?

Comment 3 Eugene Kanter 2002-06-04 22:07:31 UTC
Yes, it is. I was told that PCI/PCMCIA adapters are not supported by 2.4 kernel
pcmcia drivers. Any chance it might get supported? Should there be a special
kernel with old pcmcia-cs drivers to support older hardware?

Comment 4 Arjan van de Ven 2002-06-05 08:09:32 UTC
Well there is the chicken vs egg problem here. I already wrote a PCI->pcmcia
driver for one chip, but the most common chip I don't have hw access for so
can't actually write the driver ;(



Comment 5 Eugene Kanter 2003-10-20 01:02:40 UTC
Any news here?
According to pcmcia-cs documentation PCI to PCMCIA adapters will never be
supported by kernel PCMCIA subsystem. Does this mean that these adapters are
essentially dead and not worth supporting anymore?
