Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 91112
Kernel upgrade 2.4.20-13.7 kills pcmcia
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:53:49 EDT
Recent upgrade to kernel 2.4.20-13.7 rendered PCMCIA inactive. Xircom RBE-100
ethernet cards don't start. Reboot with 2.4.20-13.7 and it works again.
Sorry clipper pasted wrong good version of the kernel
2.4.18-27.7.x works ok
Created attachment 91785 [details]
correction for /etc/init.d/pcmcia
The reason is that pcmia modules have moved from /lib/module/*/pcmcia to
/lib/module/*/kernel/drivers/pcmcia, but /etc/init.d/pcmcia (in package
kernel-pcmcia-cs) has not beenupdated to reflect thiskernel-pcmcia-cs
Replace /etc/init.d/pcmcia from the one in Redhat 9 release, or apply the
PS: the bug is certainly in all Redhat version except the 9 one.
All the PCMCIA cards are recognized as "anonymous memory".
PCMCIA does not work at all with 2.4.20-13.7.
It is not just a matter of init script or modules location.
The patch worked well. I think we can close this bug.
