Description eduardof 1999-09-09 20:34:34 UTC
I am having a problem just after I've tried to upgrade my Linux from Conectiva RedHat 3.0 to Conectiva 4.0 I've also tried the RedHat 6.0 and Mandrake but, unfortunately all of these versions have the same problem. I looked for the answer in the HOW-TO's and tried to install in all modes but with no success The problem: I can 'ping' to all machines in the nework. It works OK. When I conect to a server using ftp or telnet, after the answer about my password, the terminal do not answer anymore. If I use Netscape, the browser don't show some pictures and it hangs. I cannot use the ftp even inside Netscape. If I remove the network cable and use a remote conection by telephone (PPP) all the programs work OK. Using a tip in one of the HOW-TO's I've got the following information about the PCMCIA cards: Identification: Socket 0: product info: "IBM Corp.", "Ethernet", "0934214", "PC-NIC ENCC990010759-001A" manfid: 0x00a4, 0x0002 function: 6 (network) Socket 1: product info: " ", "PCMCIA 33.6/14.4 Data/Fax Modem", "Version 1.51", "Card Assy Part No. 85H8059" manfid: 0x00a4, 0x0039 function: 2 (serial) configuration: Socket 0: Vcc = 5.0, Vpp1 = 0.0, Vpp2 = 0.0 Interface type is memory and I/O IRQ 5 is exclusive, level mode, enabled Function 0: Config register base = 0x20000 Option = 0x41, status = 0000, copy = 0000 I/O window 1: 0x0300 to 0x031f, auto sized Socket 1: Vcc = 5.0, Vpp1 = 0.0, Vpp2 = 0.0 Interface type is memory and I/O IRQ 9 is exclusive, level mode, enabled Speaker output is enabled Function 0: Config register base = 0x0200 Option = 0x61, status = 0x08, pin = 0000, ext = 0000 I/O window 1: 0x02f8 to 0x02ff, 8 bit My laptop is a thinkpad 760EL and I've also tried to upgrade the BIOS but it didn't fix the problem. If I change the HD to another with NT or the linux 3.0 inside, everything works. (I've also tried to install in another hd...) This is the problem that I cound't solve even swapping the whole laptop and cards. I thank you in advance for some help.

I've seen this bug before while dealing with a remote dialup user who could telnet in, but then it would hang after password prompt. We resolved the problem by having him set the MTU size smaller. The problem promptly went away.

Unfortunatelly it didn't work. The results are the same. Yesteday I installed the RedHat 5.2 (kernel 2.0.xx) and it worked very well. All distributions using kernel 2.2.xx don't work. Couldn't it be a kernel problem?

I solved the problem. IT was a Kernel problem. First of all I'd like to thank you for Mr.Rich who send me the start point like described below: firstname.lastname@example.org wrote: > > henninrp replied to your post 'Kernel problem' at the site: The Linux Forum.

It in/directly helped me to figure out what was the problem. I did what you had asked me but it didn't solve the problem - the machine locked in the init level 3. Searching for some help on the Internet I found a page at IBM telling about a problem with PCMCIA in versions lower than 2.2.10 and pcmcia 3.0.14 ( http://www.pc.ibm.com/qtechinfo/MIGR-4BP6Q6.html ). So, I compiled my kernel and pcmcia with these new versions and it worked!! But it's not all. After that I got the newest ISO image from mandrake's page, with kernel 2.2.13 and pcmcia 3.1.0, burned a CD and installed it in my laptop. To my surprise it didn't work!! I needed to recompile the kernel and pcmcia module to these new versions to get it working. So, I think, there were 2 problems related: First: the kernel and PCMCIA levels. Second: the pre-compiled versions of these products (mandrake, RedHat and Conectiva). Anyway, Your help was the start point to track this problem - THANK YOU very much. Best regards. - Eduardo Cruz

This problem appears resolved.
