This is a storage device of some sort?
Comment 4 Joshua Giles 2002-06-12 15:59:17 EDT

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 16:32:41 EDT
So, what sort of configuration needs to be done for this card?
Comment 6 Joshua Giles 2002-06-12 17:10:44 EDT
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 18:08:32 EDT
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 2002-06-22 21:25:59 EDT
Is this a cross bug to 60376 ?
Comment 9 John A. Hull 2002-07-16 13:35:31 EDT
Working as designed
