Question PCMCIAs for Redhat 8.0


Hi,

Could any nice fella please let me know a list of all PCMCIAs known to work in Redhat 8.0. I cannot upgrade/move to Redhat 9.0 or any other Linux distro at the moment.

It's depressing to see that Redhat.com ( http://hardware.redhat.com/hcl/ ) has listed only one Kingston CardBus (ever heard of it?) in their web-site for 8.0, whereas the list for Redhat 7 has page-fulls of those.

A few days back, after noticing a lot of support for Redhat Linux 6.0/6.1/6.2/7.0/8.0 on Netgear's web-site: http://www.netgear.com/support/suppo....asp?dnldID=70
.. I bought this FA511 card, but it doesn't seem to work. Worst that Netgear guys have lied on their web-site for support for 8.0 as there's no driver available for the same, and when I called customer service, they confirmed support only upto ver. 7.

Please suggest.

SP

This is such a cruel joke!!

Probably the driver is present at: http://pcmcia-cs.sourceforge.net , but I had not install Linux source when I installed the OS for the first time. After that, I've updated the kernel/other binaries many times. Now what I have is i686 kernel 2.4.20-20.8 and no linux source.

The PCMCIA driver asks for linux source at first place. I tried specifying CD-ROM path, as those contain the 'Source Code'. But it's not working, probably because CD-ROM has SRPMs and not certian files (probably C or .. I don't know).

Any suggestions, .. or could anyb'dy please donate to me compiled tulip_cb.o for my kernel?

Thanks
SP

Hi SoftwareParadis -- I'm also looking for tulip_cb.o for RedHat 8.0. Tried to compile the source
code that came with Netgear's drivers but got all kinds of errors (during compilation). How did
you get it to work?

Thank you,

Martin

Hi Molivera,

I did not install anything, but used the RH8.0-detected hardware/driver - which it does not show as 'NetGear' but works perfectly.

Just give it a try.
Best of luck.

SP
