Question xirc2ps_cs device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization


Hello I just install Fedora Core 2 on my Dell Latitude CPi A400XT and everything went well, now I set up my PCMCIA on the instalation , wend it loads

pcmcia [ ok ]

I also get the following error when I'm starting up:

Start service eth0: interface 'eth0' not found
xirc2ps_cs device eth0 does not seem to be present, delaying initialization

and then later on it goes.

Start service pcmcia [ OK ]

is there anyway that I could fix this problem..

Also my Audio it detects it and I do the sond test and it plays but it does not play the .wav that comes with Fedora..

Same problem, same NIC, same Laptop

Hey,
I have exact same problem, My Dell is a slightly different model but everything
else is same (Xircom, Sound).
This is frustrating being a noob and all - who has time to learn another OS?

The reason you are getting this message is RedHat/Fedora Core start networking before they start PCMCIA. I'm trying to remember off the top of my head how to get pcmcia to load before networking but I'm having a mental block at the mo

To get eth0 to work just run 'ifup eth0' from the command line (you may need to be root unless you have enabled all users to configure the device.

I'll get back to you hopefully later this evening with the fix you need!

This is exactly what I was trying to remember!

....the same as clicking 'Activate' from the GUI?

I had the exact same problem with a wireless. What I did was add
ifconfig eth0 up
in my rc.local file, and it will start itself properly.
