Description of problem:
During boot, the error message "xircom_cb device eth0 seems not to be present,
delaying initialization." [FAILED]. Could this have to do with the order in
which the services are started? Looking in /var/log/boot.log, this is how it looks:
Mar 4 11:22:41 citation pcmcia: Starting PCMCIA services:
Mar 4 11:22:39 citation network: Setting network parameters: succeeded
Mar 4 11:22:39 citation ifup: Cannot find device "eth0"
Mar 4 11:22:39 citation network: Bringing up loopback interface: succeeded
Mar 4 11:22:42 citation pcmcia: cardmgr. // <-- pcmcia started AFTER network
Mar 4 11:22:43 citation rc: Starting pcmcia: succeeded // <-- isn't eth0
avaiable first now?
Steps to Reproduce:
pcmcia NIC initialised (later), but an confusing error message is displayed.
No error message should be displayed.
This laptop did not have the same problem with 8.0.
This is due to the way pcmcia devices are now detected and some other things all
coming together. Summary is to ignore it :(
