fedora core 3 test 1 - 3com 3c574 pcmcia - bad file descriptor

Computer: Dell Inspiron 7500 laptop
Fedora Core 3 Test 1
Card: 3Com 3C574

The error on either a /sbin/service/pcmcia restart is:

open_socket(socket 0) failed: bad file descriptor

When I use the GUI Activate tool, I get no error message, nor any other response. Literally, nothing happens. Nothing freezes, but no feedback is returned.

When I run ifup eth0, the shell prompt returns, no error messages, no effect.

Card works fine with Redhat 7 and Fedora Core 2. For Fedora Core 2, I had to remove this line from modprobe.conf to make it work:

alias eth0 3c574_cs

The same problem appears to exist in Fedora Core 3, so I removed the line from modprobe.conf in this case as well.

this is the ifcfg-eth0 script



thanks in advance for any help.

Hmm. In the network-scripts directory. There doesn't appear to be an ifup-eth0 script... although there's an ifcfg-eth0 file. It's not anywhere else either.

Could this be the problem? What's the best solution here?

Hey, does really no one has an idea? Seems to be an old problem now, but still no solution? I hope someone can help me out cause i got the same problem mentioned with my cisco aironet card.
