Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 81699
PCMCIA network-based install fails to load ds.o module
Last modified: 2008-01-17 12:49:42 EST
Description of problem:
Attempting to install Phoebe on both a Dell, and IBM laptop, with Xircom 16 & 32 bit
and D-Link NE2000 compatible PCMCIA NICs fails: ds.o module fails to load, which
fails the NIC-specific module as well. The error message (seen in the kernel
reports the common "modules may fail to load because of incorrect IRQ..." error
Attempted again, with all three NICs, and both laptops, with the `acpi=off' during
boot process, but ds.o still fails to load.
The install is based on the floppy images, not iso.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot from bootdisk.img floppy
2.Select "Use Driver Disk" when asked, and load pcmciadd.img floppy
3."Loading drivers..." message appears, then kicks out to "Select Driver" screen
4.Select "Select Driver" and choose Xircom, or NE2000 driver
5."Select Driver" screen reappears immediately
6. Alt-F4 shows ds.o module load failure
Expected Results: An install process over the 'net via NFS, FTP or HTTP.
This should be happier in the next beta.
