Description Ivo Sarak 2003-01-07 10:49:49 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021218

Description of problem:
As a direct result of bug
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=80882  - can not start this
machine up with kernel 2.4.20-2.2, I must start up this machine with earlier
kernel (kernel 2.4.18-19-8-0) and when there is no pcmcia adapters found on this
machine anymore.



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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1) Upgrade HP OmniBook XT6050 to Phoebe.
2) Enable pcmcia and try some pcmcia card with it.

Actual Results:  No pcmcia cards found (punch of errors).

Expected Results:  No errors and working cards.

Additional info:

/var/log/messages will contain:
pcmcia: modprobe: Can't locate module
/lib/modules/2.4.18-19.8.0/pcmcia/pcmcia-core.o
cardmgr[489]: starting, version is 3.1.31
pcmcia: modprobe: Can't locate module
/lib/modules/2.4.18-19.8.0/pcmcia/yenta-socket.o
cardmgr[489]:config error, file 'config' line 1056: syntax error
cardmgr[489]:config error, file 'config' line 2136: no function bindings
pcmcia: modprobe: Can't locate module /lib/modules/2.4.18-19.8.0/pcmcia/ds.o
cardmgr[489]: no pcmcia driver in /proc/devices

These files are there (actually links to these files) and when to manually
insmod these then they load fine.

And after a (re)start of cardmgr - there are pcmcia devices available again!  

What is this 'config' file and why these files are not found at startup?
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2003-01-08 00:26:50 EST
Does the rawhide kernel-pcmcia-cs solve this for you?
Comment 2 Ivo Sarak 2003-01-08 02:58:23 EST
No. Only difference is that all error messages are gone (only message is
"pcmcia: started successfully").
Still no pcmcia_core.o, yenta-socket.o or ds.o module are loaded and no pcmcia
devices are found.
Comment 3 Ivo Sarak 2003-02-03 07:31:35 EST
No changes with Phoebe Beta 8.0.93.
Comment 4 Ivo Sarak 2003-02-10 02:22:35 EST
No changes with kernel-pcmcia-cs-3.1.31-13.i386.rpm .
Comment 5 Ivo Sarak 2003-03-10 10:53:49 EST
Any news?
Comment 6 Ivo Sarak 2003-03-15 08:03:20 EST
It is strange that pcmcia is unable to start up at bootime, but fortunately I
get the pcmcia working by running:

modprobe pcmcia_core
modprobe yenta_socket
modprobe ds
cardmgr

Comment 7 Ivo Sarak 2003-03-26 03:12:08 EST
As the release of RedHat Linux 9.0 is imminent, what is the status of this bug?
Comment 8 Ivo Sarak 2003-04-07 12:31:15 EDT
Is this the reason?:
