1. Boot kernel
2. insert pcmcia-card

Actual Results:  Card was not detected at all

Expected Results:  Card(s) should be detected

Additional info:

Comment 1 Andreas Pfaffeneder 2005-04-30 19:50:53 UTC
Problem persists with kernel-xen0-2.6.11-1.1276_FC4

Cardctl status indicates that there´s a card plugged in, but it is not powered
on/firmware is not load (Netgear WG511 v2)

Comment 2 Andreas Pfaffeneder 2005-05-03 20:28:39 UTC
same for 1282

Comment 3 Andreas Pfaffeneder 2005-05-03 20:51:59 UTC
I´ll test and
following the next days and report back if that is problems resolution.

Comment 4 Stephen Tweedie 2006-01-24 23:31:01 UTC
Did it help?  If not, does current FC5test2 or rawhide help?  (That contains a
significantly updated hypervisor/kernel combination.)  Thanks.

Comment 5 Andreas Pfaffeneder 2006-01-25 09:40:41 UTC
can´t test, hardware broken.

Comment 7 Christian Iseli 2007-01-22 11:28:06 UTC
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?


Comment 8 Andreas Pfaffeneder 2007-01-22 20:26:51 UTC
As mentioned: The hardware (read: the notebook) is broken. No chance to test
that problem at all.

Comment 9 Stephen Tweedie 2007-02-02 12:40:27 UTC
OK, please reopen if you are able to reproduce again.
