Description Theodore Tso 1999-04-10 04:20:38 UTC
I'm seeing in the log:

cardmgr[13]: Starting, version is 3.0.8
cardmgr[13]: could not open 'config': No such file or
cardmgr[13]: exiting

This is with the boot.img and pcmcia.img on gribble's beta3
images directory.

I've encountered a possibly related problem; will submit shortly.  On
my laptop, which does not require pcmcia services for install/upgrade,
booting after installation hangs at the point where the attempt is
made to start pcmcia services.  If I comment out the S45pcmcia script
in /etc/rc.d/rc3.d and rc5.d then the system will boot normally, but
pcmcia services seem not to work.

Did 6.0 final clear these problems up?

Comment 3 Cristian Gafton 1999-06-18 16:39:59 UTC
Is this still valid? Please reopen if so.

I don't know.  I installed 6.0 final on my VAIO the same way I
the betas, because I was in the hurry --- I copied the contents of the
CDROM to spare space in my Windows partition, booted from a floppy,
then told the Install to look in my Windows partition for the RedHat

I can check after I get back from Usenix next week, though....
