Description Jason Dunn 2003-05-17 10:44:06 EDT
Description of problem:

On first boot after fresh install system hangs on 'Starting pcmcia'
I receive the following error message:
    "Starting pcmcia:	i8253 count too high! resetting..
     i8253 count too high! resetting.."

No resets occur, system remains in a hanging state.
System still hangs on pcmcia when booting without error messages.
This error occurs also when the system is booted using the 'linux nopcmcia' 
argument...got me there.  I am new to linux, trying to migrate away from 
windows, I would appreciate the help here.

I am attempting to run RH9 on an HP Pavillion laptop model e4240; mobility 
radeon 64mb vid; 1024x768 xga; 256mb mem; 30gb hard drive; 15.0" display; mobil 
athlon XP 1800.

Thank you,

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Not sure...I'll research this when I get a chance and update this.
(1) Type II CardBus
(1) Type III CardBus

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install OS
2.Finish install and reboot...hangs
3.Reboot...hangs...works every time
Actual results:
"Starting pcmcia:"   (nothing from this point on when booting)
"Starting pcmcia:	i8253 count too high! resetting..
     i8253 count too high! resetting.."  (nothing from this point)

Expected results:

Additional info:
Thanks for looking into this.

Does this have the Radeon IGP chipset ? If so you may well need to boot with
"nousb nopcmcia" as options.

It is running an ATI Mobility Radeon; AGP.
