PCMCIA Ethernet Support for RedHat Install via FTP

PCMCIA Ethernet Support for RedHat Install via FTP

Post by justin t marti » Sun, 01 Mar 1998 04:00:00

Does anyone know how to start the PCMCIA services from the command line?

I have a pcmcia ethernet card that should be supported Eiger Labs 10BT.
It's listed in the supported.cards document and it should be using the
pcnet_cs driver, however it is not recognized by redhat. The card is
detected when inserted and returns the correct version. I can use cat to
edit the /etc/pcmcia/config file and add a definition for my card, but by
the time I can usethe command line I have to have either skipped or
installed PCMCIA services and RedHat install will not go back to install
PCMCIA support. The suplemental disk is loaded when I tell it to do an
FTP install. And I can have it search for an ethernet device by going back
in RedHat install and choosing FTP again.

So I need to find out how to start up PCMCIA from the command line after I
edit the config file. Any Ideas?

1. RedHat ftp boot via pcmcia ethernet card


I'm trying to install RedHat 4.2 via FTP on my Texas Instruments
Travelmate 6160 notebook, using the 3com 3C589D ethernet adapter.

After configuring the TCP/IP, network and doing the ftp setup
I get the message:
   'I cannot log into machine: Failed to connect to FTP server'

I'm sure that I did the setup for IP address, Netmask, gateway, name
.... in the right way.

Looking at the RedHat documentation and several HOWTO's didn't provide
information about such a problem, so i hope that a Linux guru
can recognize the problem by looking at the following boot

Thanks a lot
