Warning Toshiba Tecra 8100, 3.1.10 works, 3.1.11 fails 

Forum: PCMCIA Installation and Configuration Issues
Date: 2000, Feb 22
From: Roger E Critchlow Jr <rec@elf.org>

I spent some hours last night getting pcmcia working
with redhat 6.1 kernel-2.2.12 on a Toshiba Tecra 8100.

Note first that SuSE 6.3 runs out of the box on this machine:

Feb  2 22:18:49 elf8 kernel: Linux PCMCIA Card Services 3.1.3
Feb  2 22:18:49 elf8 kernel:   kernel build: 2.2.13 #1 Mon Nov 8 18:28:35 GMT 1999
Feb  2 22:18:49 elf8 kernel:   options:  [pci] [cardbus] [pnp]

But the pcmcia shipping with RedHat 6.1 didn't work.

I first tried pcmcia-cs-3.1.11, in all configurations tried,
with all sorts of imaginative values for cb_mem_base, the
result was essentially:

I then tried pcmcia-cs-3.1.10, and immediately succeeded:

I haven't yet gotten the network up under RedHat, getting
the services started at all was enough for last night.

I needed a "tired face" for this message, I got four hours
of sleep last night.

Message Administration

This form allows you to delete, move, or copy one or more messages. You can move messages by copying and deleting the original. The action will be applied to the messages you select above and all replies to those selected messages.


If you want to copy or move messages, specify the HyperNews path of a destination forum or message that all messages will be copied or moved to. The destination must already exist, so maybe create it first.

Path of Destination (a Forum or Message): (e.g. "test")

Notify Subscribers at destination
NO


If you want to delete messages (the default), specify that here. If you want to move messages, you need to delete the original messages; placeholders will be left pointing to where they were moved.

Delete Messages
NO


Caution: After deleteing messages (the default), if you have not copied them (i.e. no destination above), then the selected messages are not be recoverable.
