Linksys WPC11 PCMCIA card
Kernel version 2.4.18-7.80
Did the same thing on RH 7.1, 7.2 worked fine
after installing (null) locked up about 2 hours later
I had the same problem with a Toshiba Satellite 2545 XCDT, and found that there
were conflicts between installed hardware and the default resource ranges in
/etc/pcmcia/config.opts. Make sure that *none* of the "include" statements
specify an interrupt, I/O port, or memory that /proc/interrupts, /proc/ioports,
or /proc/iomem show as in use.
This is an installation and setup issue.
No problems in RH9. Issue resolved, closing bug.
