Description Jason M. Sullivan 1999-05-11 16:25:32 UTC
I'm trying to load 6.0 on a TI TravelMate 5200, and when
I get to the PCMCIA supplemental disk, the machine hangs.
When I look at the messages in the logging console, I get
the following notes...

Linux PCMCIA Card Services 3.0.9
  kernel build: 2.2.5-14BOOT #1 Sun Apr 18 22:28:51 EDT 1999
  options: [pci] [cardbus]
Intel PCIC probe:
  Cirrus PD627x ISA-to-PCMCIA at port 0x3e0 ofs 0x00, 2
    host opts [0]: [ring] [65/6/0] [1/15/0]
    host opts [1]: [ring] [65/6/0] [1/15/0]
    ISA irqs (default) = 3,4,5,7,9,10,11,12 polling interval
= 1000ms
May 11 12:10:49 cardmgr[13]: starting, version is 3.0.8
May 11 12:10:49 cardmgr[13]: watching 2 sockets
May 11 12:10:49 cardmgr[13]: Card services release does not

Then the machine hangs.  It's pretty clear that the cardmgr
doesn't match the kernel module.  Whether this causes the
hang is a question, since I had a similar problem (without
the mismatch) in 5.2, and that seems to be a problem with
scanning bad I/O ports.  I live near RTP, so I can bring the
laptop in to Red Hat for further investigation.

The release mismatch has been replicated in the test lab, but I was
able to continue with the installation without a hang.  However, it
could be the card that you are using that is not in agreement.  I am
going to forward this issue to a developer to get the releases in
step, then you can try again and see if you are still having problems.

The card worked fine in 5.1.  I'm thinking maybe it's a port scanning
problem (ie. the newer PCMCIA stuff added some particular port address
that my laptop doesn't like.  Is there a way to moify that during
