Question Oops on mistaken identity 

Forum: PCMCIA Installation and Configuration Issues
Date: 1999, Dec 24
From: John Langford jcl

I just upgraded my brother's laptop to redhat-6.1 (pcmcia-3.0.14) from redhat-5.1 and am having problems with pcmcia. When the ethernet card or modem card are inserted a kernel oops occurs. I read through the messages and it appears that the wrong device is being detected leading to the wrong module being inserted and the kernel oops.

Unfortunately, I can't tell you much about the ethernet amd modem cards. They are some variety of generic "made in taiwan". They worked under redhat-5.1 (pcmcia?? I forget). The pathetic users guide claims that the ethernet card is ne2000 compatible. The 'faxmodem' has FCC ID "MGAFM336C-KF" and the ethernet card has part number BEN0012-TF 9830 and serial number 00A00jC123A67.

Is upgrading to the latest pcmcia likely to help? Is there a "right" way to disable automatic card detection and force driver loading?

Here are the relevant parts of the message log:
