Question RH6.1 505TR hangs returning from hibernate 

Forum: PCMCIA Network Adapter Issues

I have installed RH6.1 on a Sony 505TR and it seems to work quite well except for one thing. With an active network pcmcia card in place going into a suspend or hibernate mode (Fn-F2 or Fn-F12) is the kiss of death. As soon as I try to "wake-up" the system it comes alive for a brief instant and then hangs cold. The only course of action is a power down and wait on the fsck scolding on reboot. My other pcmcia modem card does not have any trouble with suspend and resume.

Also noticed that if the adapter cable or ethernet cable are unplugged from the ethernet card while it is live this will cause the system to hang also.

I can do a 	/sbin/cardctl suspend
		wake up
		/sbin/cardctl resume
without crashing.

Is anyone familiar with this behavior? Is this to be expected? Thanks hghiii

ps the card in question is a Linksys etherfast 10/100:PCMPC200
