Question redhat 6.0 -> 6.1 upgrade breaks pcmcia? 

Forum: PCMCIA Installation and Configuration Issues

From: Michael Way mway

I just upgraded my toshiba 490xcdt from redhat 6.0
to 6.1. i'm experiencing strange behaviour from the
pcmcia utilties in relation to my pcmcia 3com 3c589
network card.

1.) upon boot the card is not recognized.
2.) once the machine is up, if i reload pcmcia it
    is still not recognized (/etc/rc.d/init.d/pcmcia restart)
3.) if i pull out the card and push it back in it _IS_
    recognized and the appropriate driver is loaded.
    all seems to work normally.

a peek in /var/log/messages on the the successful one (3)
shows the card to be loaded properly, name and all.
a similar look in /var/log/messages from attempts (1) and (2)
above show strange messages about an unknown memory
card that _dont'_ show up when i succeed with (3) above:

cmcia/memory_cs.o'


BUT i don't understand this since i DON'T have a memory
card in the machine. any ideas of what i can take
out or put into the pcmcia stuff to fix this?
the machine was running everything just fine under
redhat 6.0. if it were my machine i would have never
upgraded it... but i had to do it for my boss....

thanks,
mike
