Question Help with PCMCIA 3.1.16 and kernel 2.2.16

Greetings guys,

This is my first post, and I'm hoping y'all can tell me what I'm missing here..

I'm running SuSE 6.4 on my Dell Latitude CP. I downloaded the new 2.2.16 kernel and compiled it. The kernel works fine until it tries to load my PCMCIA card stuff. I downloaded the newest version of PCMCIA and configured/compiled it and got everything installed. Now, when I boot up in my new kernel, I get a segmentation fault errors when I try to load the base modules. One of the errors: /sbin/init.d/rc2.d/S03pcmcia line154 68 Segmentation fault /sbin/modprobe -nv $PCMCIA $PCMCIA_PCIC_OPTS

But when I load up my previous kernel (2.2.14) it works fine with PCMCIA 3.1.16. Everything boots up and configures.

That's it. Thanks!

Any thoughts?

Thanks a ton!

Dave

I don't have an answer for you; it works for me with 2.2.16.  My
version of modprobe does not even offer a "-n" option.  If modprobe is
seg faulting (and you are not seeing kernel traps), then I wonder if
it is actually a modutils problem.  Such things should not happen with
stable kernels but I don't have an alternative explanation.

None Still not working...

I still got the segmentation fault when I tried to execute the start up script for PCMCIA. I tried taking out the -n option for modprobe, and it booted up in 2.2.14 (not in 2.2.16) but when I tried 2.2.16, it gave me the same error again. Then, when I tried taking out the lines completely, I still got a segmentation fault!

I'm still examining the script to make sure there aren't other faults that I'm missing..Could the fact that I'm running SuSE with a precompiled kernel mean anything? perhaps my laptop just hates me? Other thoughts? Suggestions? Flames about my stupid laptop?

Just an afterthought, thanks to the guy(s?) who made the script for making the Netgear FA410TXC. you guys are a godsend.

Thanks a ton! Dave
