Trouble setting up PCMCIA modules ...

Post by ian steve » Thu, 11 Mar 1999 04:00:00



I recently installed the 2.2.3 kernel on my Versa 6050MH running RH5.1
and then attempted to install the PCMCIA services v3.0.9.  I get the
following errors:

    - On bootup and continuously after bootup, modprobe complains:

        Mar 10 05:38:23 corduroy modprobe: can't locate module net-pf-5
        Mar 10 05:38:24 corduroy modprobe: can't locate module net-pf-4

    - cardctl can verify that the card is there but the lights aren't on

Installing v3.0.8 with kernel 2.2.1 resulting in boot-up* when
trying to find the PCMCIA modules.  I had to delete the modules for
boot-up to progress.

I've compiled PCMCIA under kernel v2.0.35 and it worked fine with little
problems.  I seem to recall that kernel having configure options for
PCMCIA, though.

Any help or ideas would be appreciated.

thanks,
ian.

Continuously??  Odd.  They are not PCMCIA messages.

System log messages are always nice.  It's also nice to say what
card(s) you're using.

This part has nothing to do with pcmcia services.

1. Edit /etc/conf.modules and add:

# Added to disable Appletalk and IPX checks by ifconfig
alias net-pf-5 off

2. Upgrade your net-tools package.

Not sure what net-pf-4 is but you can also disable it in
/etc/conf.modules.

Right.  Sorry.  I'm using a Megahertz 10Base-T/10BASE-2 LAN adapter,
model CC10BT/CC10B2.

I've made some progress.  The card beeps when inserted and then beeps
high several seconds later.  No lights are on, however.

Running lsmod gives the following:

and cardctl gives the following:

   no card
 Socket 1:
   5V 16-bit card present
   Function 0: ready

This looks normal.  My guess is that the card is working fine, and
your problem is just that the interface hasn't been configured.  Have
you checked the PCMCIA-HOWTO section about Red Hat?  If you do an
"ifup eth0" I bet it starts to work...
