Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2003:187 normal SHIPPED_LIVE : Updated 2.4 kernel fixes vulnerabilities and driver bugs 2003-05-22 04:00:00 UTC

Description Jeffrey Powell 2003-05-18 22:45:55 UTC
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.

Comment 1 Jeffrey Powell 2003-05-18 22:48:28 UTC
Sorry clipper pasted wrong good version of the kernel 

2.4.18-27.7.x works ok

Comment 2 Jean-Luc Richier 2003-05-19 12:53:27 UTC
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
--> solution
Replace /etc/init.d/pcmcia from the one in Redhat 9 release, or apply the
attached patch
PS: the bug is certainly in all Redhat version except the 9 one.

Comment 3 Need Real Name 2003-05-22 16:34:28 UTC
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.

Comment 4 Jeffrey Powell 2003-05-22 22:22:34 UTC
The patch worked well. I think we can close this bug.

Thank you.
