Description Sam Varshavchik 2002-12-27 02:24:37 UTC
Description of problem:

Attempting to do an HTTP install on a laptop.  Until psyche/gingin, the
installer was capable of automatically detecting and initializing the 3com
pcmcia network card.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

Boot the laptop using bootdisk.img

Select HTTP install

When prompted for a driver disk, insert pcmciadd.img

anaconda reads the driver disk, claims that it cannot automatically install a
driver, gives option for a manual install.

psyche/gingin used 3c589_cs driver.  Manually selecting the 3c589_cs driver in
installer does not work, anaconda still can't install the driver.

Comment 4 Bill Nottingham 2003-01-01 03:54:30 UTC
16-bit PCMCIA support is not currently in the installer.

Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2003-01-08 21:58:15 UTC
16bit PCMCIA support is back in CVS and will be in the next beta.  Testing then
(even if it's just to see if you can get to stage2 and you don't install) would
be appreciated.

so I'm resolving these bugs as Rawhide.  If the bug you are seeing still exists,
please reopen this report and mark it as Reopened.
