Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 72578
PCMCIA not detected
Last modified: 2007-03-26 23:56:26 EDT
On my board with a VIA i82365 PCMCIA controller the installer failed to set up
the PCMCIA interface after firstboot. Interestingly enough it -did- find it in
the installer itself
I assume anaconda should have written this to the /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia ?
Bill kudzu has the honors correct?
If it doesn't it needs to. If someone installs a PCMCIA adapter in a desktop
box we need to pick it up.
Desktop actually shouldnt be relevant, it appears identicaly to the wired in ISA
non cardbus one on a laptop, same I/O the lot
Um, no, anaconda writes /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia.
What does kernel-pcmcia-cs's /sbin/probe return?
PCI bridge probe: not found.
Intel PCIC probe: not found.
Databook TCIC-2 probe: not found.
The kernel PCMCIA however detects it fine
The kernel detects it using what module? yenta_socket?
The kernel i82365 probe check finds it. That probe however may well not be safe
for general poking to see if hardware is present. I guess this is 8.1 stuff or
not a bug in fact. The /sbin/probe does less (and I suspect safer probing)
Reassigned to kernel and to me to investigate further post 8.0
Seems risky and its legacy hardware nowdays. Also with a modern box you have to
set the PCI IRQs up by hand anyway
