pcmcia probs with laptop
 
Hi all,

When i boot RH 9 on my laptop all goes well until it starts pcmcia, from then on it hangs :( . Took the cd and searched for pcmcia kernel and installed that. Still hangs. Can anyone tell my how to get around this problem (without removing the pcmcia thingy ;) )?

Thanks in advance,

Bachus

Are you trying to install Redhat 9?
If installing use ' linux nopcmcia ' to install with.

Or is it already installed and hangs on boot?

Did you wait 5 - 10 minutes and see if it would complete booting?

Which kernel? factory or you built one?

You can boot with nopcmcia.

Edit /etc/sysconfig/pcmcia file and change yes to no and see if booting completes. You will still see it looking like it is loading pcmcia.

Install this pcmcia 3.2.5 from here http://pcmcia-cs.sourceforge.net/ftp/

The more info about your system the faster we all can help

Good luck

We'll I got around it already. Used rescue disk then chroot /mnt/sysimage and changed the config :)

Heh the answer was quite easy now that i know it :D
