Forum: PCMCIA Installation and Configuration Issues
Re: Question Adaptec 1480 SCSI not quite working, other PCMCIA does (S. Allen)

Sorry to bother you!
1. I should have noticed that the 1480 is in your list of updates, and that there is a separate SCSI forum with postings about it. Thanks for the very prompt response.

2. However, I have spent several hours trying (and
a call) to execute
the simple command

make config in the new pcmcia directory! (I used version 3.1.15 because of your posting on May 15 to Barton).

--the question is about getting the source. I used the red hat upgrade manager to install the kernal tree, and it looked like it was in /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES (but I didn't check carefully for files, as there are a lot of them--did
I miss the directory?). (Note: turned off kernal* exceptions
in the upgrade manager, it looked like the package
was installed properly).

2a. Then ran config in the pcmcia directory and it said the tree was incomplete (I typed /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES) in the first question. The config quit at this point.

3. Then tried the manual method--
followed your download instructions (the HOWTO is
invaluable) and had a /usr/src/linux directory. My kernel is
2.2.14-5.0 so I downloaded the 2.2.14 tar. Put the /linux
directory in /usr/src/ -- and used the default for the answer
to the first question. I got a warning about version conflict
between subtree 14.0 and 14-5.0, so stopped.

3a. Noticed that the printout in the posting above by Barton
on May 18 did not have this warning message and he was using
Redhat 6.2. i.e. it verfied the 2.2.14-5.0 subtree.
--So, how should I proceed?

Sorry to be so uninformed!
