Bug#120480: boot-floppies: pcmcia removal problems
Version: 3.0.17 (udma100-ext3)
While installing the udma100-ext3 flavour of 3.0.17 boot-floppies on a
Toshiba Satellite Pro 4300, I ran into some problems with the PCMCIA
I configured PCMCIA support which worked fine (correct modules loaded
etc.), I then went to configure the network which also went okay until
at the end when it tried to reload the pcmcia modules. This failed.
In the syslog, I got (rough transcription):
| dbootstrap: ds: device or resource busy
| dbootstrap: i82365: device or resource busy
| dbootstrap: pcmcia_coure: device or resource busy
| insmod: insmod: a module named pcmcia_core already exists
| user.err dbootstrap: an error encountered while trying to load and configure the pcmcia modules
cat /proc/modules showed (again, rough transaction):
| serial_cs 0 (unused)
| 3c574_cs 0 (unused)
| ds 0 [serial_cs 3c574_cs]
| i82365 22704 2
| pcmcica_core 0 [serial_cs 3c574_cs ds i82365]
I removed the modules byhand in the correct order and reran the
'configure pcmcia support' step which got me working networking.
This is reproduceable (this is my second install since I didn't take
notes first time round), and if you need more info, I can probably
reinstall again to get more details if you tell me what you need.
