  1. cardbus (yenta) support for toshiba sat pro 4290

    Im having this problem:
    randomply cardctl reports just slot 0 when pcmcia service starts, so
    when i have a card in slot 1 it is not detected.
    im using red hat 7.2 with kernel 2.4.22 and yenta socket.

    slot 0 is always detected

    PS: if i stop/start pcmcia service 3 o 4 times it always happens

    What is the card in slot 1?

    What are the system log messages?

    Does 'lspci' still list both CardBus devices when this happens?

    i found out what was happening: yenta_socket and ds modules have
    problems if you use a 2.4.X kernel with the preemption patch, probably
    because module loading is preempted and has to be serial: i solved
    putting a "sleep 1" after each insmod in /etc/init.d/pcmcia. a no
    preempted kernel works fine instead.
