kernel panic for cardbus adapter - please help

Post by Prasanta Sadhukha » Sun, 06 Apr 2003 19:50:10

We are using Madge 16/4 MK 2 CardBus Adapter in Redhat linux 8.0 on
Comapaq laptop i586.
We are using pcmcia-cs 3.2.4 source tree which we have compiled and
The problem we are facing is when we are plugging out the adapter from
the socket, it's giving the following dump and the processor hangs.
We have to restart the laptop after that. It's happening everytime. The
same thing happens for pcmcia-cs 3.1.31 source tree also.
