Description Steve Fletcher 2003-05-15 15:28:00 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
When booting, the system hangs at Starting pcmcia for 5 to 10 minutes, then 
continues on.  Everything appears to be working correctly, but inserting a pc 
card causes the system to hang again.  In fact, the only way I was able to 
finish the install was to use nopcmcia and noprobe.

The system is an Averatec laptop (formerly Sotec).  The card controller is an 
O2Micro 6912. Running kernel version 2.4.18-27.8.0

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install RedHat 8 on system
