Thanks, I figured that one out last night. I installed the kernel-source....rpm file and did a 'make dep'. I walked out and noticed a few errors (don't have them now). Despite the errors, I tried to build the rangeland drivers for a wireless symphony card (PCMCIA).

This driver needs the PCMCIA header files. I believe the make dep produced most but the 'config.h' is still elusive. I see a config.h link to '../pcmcia' in the '/usr/src/linux/pcmcia-cs-3.0.14/include/linux' directory. Howeverthere isn't a config.h file in ''/usr/src/linux/pcmcia-cs-3.0.14/include/pcmcia' directory. I'm lost! Any suggestions how to proceed would be appreciated!

Question success but PCMCIA hangs

Re: Question additional info (Peter Townsend)

I had some success. Following the README in /usr/src/linux , I did

make mrproper make config (defaulted thru most questions) make dep

this created the config.h that I was lookign for. However, I had to add a #endif in config.h to get the Symphony driver to compile:

#define LINUX "/usr/src/linux/kernel"

This compiled with no errors. I edited etc/sysconfig/pcmcia PCMCIA=yes PCIC=i82365 PCIC_OPTS=poll_interval=100 CORE_OPTS=

When I reboot the startup of PCMCIA services hangs! ANy suggestions?

None make config

In the PCMCIA source directory, do "make config", as discussed in the
PCMCIA-HOWTO.  The resulting config file is NOT supposed to be the
same as the kernel config.h file.
