Description of problem:
After upgrading from stock RH 8.0 to 2.4.18-17.8.0 kernel (using RHN), system
now hangs during shutdown when attempting to stop pcmcia; this hang did not/does
not occur when booting with the original 2.4.8-14 kernel installed with RH 8.0.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot system with 2.4.18-17.8.0 kernel
2. Shutdown system in the usual manner (e.g., from desktop logout)
Actual Results: System hangs in shutdown, last few lines of output are as follows:
Stopping pcmcia: cardmgr: executing: './serial check ttyS3'
cardmgr: executing: './serial stop ttyS3'
[hangs at this point]
Expected Results: Shutdown messages continue and system halts as normal.
Dell Latitude CPx J650GT (256MB memory)
Dell FlashBIOS version A15
Xircom CreditCard Ethernet 10/100 + Modem 56 PC Card
Installed RH 8.0 as clean install into using workstation configuration (with
minor customizations) and default partitioning.
I'm having the same problem, though mine says
Stopping pcmcia: cardmgr[***]: executing: './network stop eth0'
Looked similar to the bug #52270, but that didn't help. OK if I use the old
kernel to boot.
Same behavior here with Toshiba 550CDT and Xircom 10/100 Ethernet. Works
normally with old kernel.
I am also experiencing this problem using a Sony PCG-F690K and a Xircom 10/100
ethernet/modem card that worked fine with the old kernel.
I didn't mention it but my system is a Sony PCG-F670 with a Xircom 10/100
Looks like it's a problem specific to Xircom cards?
