This is a storage device of some sort?

Comment 4 Joshua Giles 2002-06-12 19:59:17 UTC

The card is a remote assistant card(lspci shows it as "Megarac").  It has a 
pcmcia card slot(modem), ethernet connection, battery pack....all the 
essentials to remotely manage a system.

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2002-06-12 20:32:41 UTC
So, what sort of configuration needs to be done for this card?

Comment 6 Joshua Giles 2002-06-12 21:10:44 UTC
Upon completion, kudzu should setup should load the "megarac" module and create 
a character special file "/dev/rac0" with permission mode 644, major and minor 
number 170 and 0 respectively.
Ex: mknod -m 644 /dev/rac0 c 170 0

Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2002-06-12 22:08:32 UTC
Actually, if your software just opens that device, it should just be an alias in
modutils; kudzu shouldn't have to load the module (and the device should be in
the normal dev package)

Comment 8 R P Herrold 2002-06-23 01:25:59 UTC
Is this a cross bug to 60376 ?

Comment 9 John A. Hull 2002-07-16 17:35:31 UTC
Working as designed
