Description of problem:
(During installation via floppy disk on a laptop without cdrom but pccard nic)
The additional driver disk image does not contain a valid "modinfo" description
file, it seems to be the normal "modinfo" file contained in the usual install image.
The module for my network card is present (3c574_cs), but still after manually
adding an entry on the "modinfo" file on the pcmciadd.img driver disk hte ds.o
module does not load correctly.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.create bootnet.img and pcmciadd.img disks
2.install with linux dd to load the driver disk
3.the driver list is not consistent with the pcmciadd.img disk
Actual Results: No way to install with laptop via network
After manually changing the modinfo file on the pcmciadd.img disk, I can choose
my pccard nic, but module ds.o does not load correctly, I presume a missing
option to ds.o.
The log says
* inserted pcmcia_core.o
/tmp/ds.o: init modules:
Hint; insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including
invalid IO or IRQ parameters
* failed to insert /tmp/ds.o
This should be better in phoebe and beyond. PCMCIA was a bizarre case
previously that wasn't really directly handled by the loader.
