Sad small problem with adaptec 1480 and pcmcia 3.1.14 

Forum: PCMCIA SCSI Host Adapter Issues
Date: 2000, Apr 16
From: Jerome Limozin jlimozin

My config : mandrake 7.0, kernel 2.2.14 (plain, not the mandrake's one), pcmcia modules 3.1.14

HP omnibook 4100 + adaptec slimSCSI 1480 cardbus

I have a problem with newest pcmcia modules (3.1.14), I don't have it with 3.1.13. When I boot my laptop with the scsi card inserted, but SCSI cable unplugged, or with scsi cable plugged, but with all external scsi devices off, the boot process freezes when pcmcia tries to start. I have to power cycle to restart. If external scsi devices are on when I boot, it works.

with 3.1.13, I could boot even if no external devices are plugged and powered. I prefer this behaviour.

Is it a bug or a feature :-) ? Thanks!! Jerome
