Description Ed Halley 2002-08-29 16:02:49 UTC
Description of Problem:
  In versions 7.0 and 7.1 of RHL, the network was started after the pcmcia
  card manager.  This causes problems on many laptop pcmcia-based ethernet

  In versions 7.2 and 7.3 of RHL, the problems were fixed for my Toshiba
  laptop, but I still heard anecdotal reports that it was not fixed for

  In the null beta of RHL, the situation regressed, and my Toshiba laptop
  again cannot find network unless I manually restart pcmcia and network,
  or change the initscripts to start the pcmcia service first.

  for i in 2 3 4 5 ; do
     mv /etc/rc.d/rc$i.d/S*pcmcia /etc/rc.d/rc$i.d/S09pcmcia

Additional Information:

  Starting pcmcia services earlier seems to be a reliable fix for many
  different types of pcmcia-based ethernet adapters, and does not seem to
  have any downside from other ordering dependencies.
  If there's any possible reason why the S*pcmcia scripts should not be
  moved to S09pcmcia to start before S10network, could they please
  document it clearly here.

  This is only for boot time, and unrelated to pcmcia and network
  problems on suspend, though a similar solution in the apmd wake
  scripts may be effective.

Have to say that this is not the case for my laptop (DELL L400).
When I come back from suspend mode I have to turn off:

a) network
b) pcmcia
and then turn them on in this order:
a) network
b) pcmcia

(I use a DELL TrueMobile 1150 wlan card)

This pcmcia thingy under Linux in general but red hat specifically will bug me 
to death. Under Gentoo Linux I had no problems what so ever.
