Description of problem:
I updated to the 2.4.18-17.7.x kernel and now when I do a cardctl eject the
machine hangs. If I physically eject the card it is fine.
This previously worked with no problems on 2.4.18-10.
The log entrys just before crash are :
cardmgr: executing: './network check eth0'
cardmgr: shutting down socket 1
cardmgr: executing: './network stop eth0'
cardmgr: executing: 'modprobe -r xirc2ps_cs'
syslogd 1.4.1 restart.
one other thing is that as far as I can tell
./network check eth0
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.do "cardctl eject" with a pcmcia ethernet card that uses the xir2ps_cs module
Actual Results: Machine hangs ... no response to mouse or keyboardThe pcmcia
card should have been powered down and the ethernet interface shut down
Just tried putting it into suspend mode, which powers down the pcmcia cards ... ie it does a cardctl
eject. But this appears to work ok
Scrub that last comment I'd booted using the wrong kernel
